Contact lenses to meet your needs

We stock all types of contact lenses from Daily Disposables to Monthly Wear Lenses at internet prices. Once you’ve had a contact lens assessment, your Optometrist will discuss the best options for you taking into account your lifestyle and needs.

Choosing the right lens

One of the main advantages of modern contact lenses is the wide choice available. Although not everyone is able to wear them, there’s likely to be a design that’s suitable for your eyes, lifestyle and pocket.

Some lenses have a special filter to block potentially harmful UV light, while others are designed to work as bifocals. As independent opticians, we offer a wide range of contact lenses and can provide you with the most suitable kind for your needs.

Soft ‘progressive’ or ‘multifocal’ lenses have also been designed to help correct the effects of presbyopia, an age-related condition which leads to blurred vision when viewing near objects. They avoid the need for a pair of reading glasses.

Soft lenses – Soft contact lenses are flexible lenses that consist of different proportions of water. They tend to be made from hydrogel, silicon hydrogel or polymacon. They’re the most common choice of contact lens, as they are comfortable to wear and easy to care for.

Gas Permeable Lenses are usually recommended if you have a high degree of astigmatism ( an irregular shaped eye) or require extra oxygen. They take a little longer to get used to, but they also last longer than soft lenses.
