Contact Lenses

There are many contact lenses on the market and the choice of what to go for can seem daunting but we will carry out a full assessment and consultation with the patient. We will discuss the various types and establish what the best option is for your lifestyle requirements.

Contact lenses don’t have to be worn full time and are a great alternative to glasses for sports, social occasions and holidays.

We have a great track record in fitting previously unsuccessful wearers of contact lenses.

Daily Disposable

Great for both occasional and full time wearers, Daily Disposables are quickly becoming the best modality in contact lens wear! By using a brand new lens every day, your eye is much less likely to develop microbial infections (compared with traditional re-usable lenses).

Myopia Control Lenses

These lenses are aimed at children between 8 and 18 at the stage where their short-sightedness is increasing.  MiSight daily disposable contact lenses not only optically correct existing myopia, giving clear distance and near vision, but MiSight has also been proven to slow the progression of myopia in most children.

MiSight lenses reduce the chance of developing high levels of myopia (-6.00D or more) and thus may lower the likelihood of eye diseases associated with short-sightedness such as retinal detachment and glaucoma.

Toric (for Astigmatism)

Whilst the more common short & long sighted prescriptions can be corrected with standard "spherical" contact lenses, Astigmatic Prescriptions require a "toric" lens. These specialised lenses have the astigmatic correction in the lens.  These lenses have a mechanism such as prism to prevent rotation.  We have free trial lenses, often in stock to optimise your visual activity.

 

Varifocal (for Presbyopia)

As our eyes age, the crystalline lens inside becomes harder and can no longer change shape to vary its focus. This means that after the age of 45-50, we all find that we need extra help adjusting our focus from distance to near. These Varifocal contact lens options provide a stronger prescription for near, allowing you to read more comfortably without glasses, whilst maintaining great distance vision at the same time!
