Contact Lenses

WEARING SPECTACLES DOESN’T ALWAYS SUIT MODERN DAY LIVING, Contact lenses HOWEVER ALLOW you THE FREEDOM TO play sports, SWIM, go out for the evening WITHOUT THE worry OF damaging or losing your glasses.

HOW DO I FIND OUT IF I CAN WEAR CONTACT LENSES?

If you currently wear spectacles and have had an eye examination within the past twelve months simply book an appointment for a contact lens assessment with one of our registered professionals. Alternatively arrange for an eye examination and we can carry on from there.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

You will be wearing your initial set of lenses within a few days of your first appointment. Once you’ve been shown the correct way to handle and take care of them you can start wearing your lenses right away. Over the following initial weeks we continue to monitor your progress to confirm everything is okay before finalising the lens specifications and arranging your scheduled lens delivery.

HOW WILL I KNOW WHICH TYPE OF LENS TO CHOOSE?

Once the results of the initial assessment have been evaluated we will recommend the lenses that best suit your eyes and wearing requirements. Currently the most popular lens options are daily or monthly disposable soft lenses. Daily disposable lenses offer the ultimate in convenience and flexibility and are virtually maintenance free. No cleaning fluids, no storage solutions and little or no risk of contamination. Just wear one pair of lenses for one day and then dispose of them after use - It’s as simple as that!

Monthly disposable lenses on the other hand require cleaning and sterilising with solutions after each days wear. However, as you only use 12 pairs of lenses per year instead of 365 the monthly lenses will cost you significantly less over 12 months than their daily equivalent.
