We are proud to say that contact lenses are our speciality.
As an independent practice, we always aim to provide honest, informed advice, and we have the freedom to choose any supplier that meets our needs. This means we can recommend and supply the most suitable lenses for both your vision and lifestyle.
Contact lens assessment and fitting
We offer patients a bespoke contact lens fitting service. We will assess your prescription and discuss your needs before fitting you with the right contact lenses for your needs. With a wide range of brands and types of lenses to choose from, We take all technical and personal fitting considerations into account when recommending brands and types of lenses to you, including using our corneal topographer to assist with complex contact lens fittings.
Once we have found contact lenses that we think are the right match, you will have a one-to-one session with either our contact lens optician or optometrist so we can teach you how to handle and look after the lenses, make sure you are comfortable with insertion and removal, and discuss your wearing schedule.
Contact lens types and brands
Some of the types of lenses we can supply include:
- daily disposables
- two-weekly lenses
- monthly lenses
- contact lenses for astigmatism
- multifocal lenses
- RGP (rigid gas permeable) contact lenses
With so many types available, from suppliers including Acuvue, Coopervision, Alcon, Bausch & Lomb, Safilens, and No 7, you can rest assured our experienced and expert contact lens specialists will help you find the right solution, even if you have been unsuccessful with lens wear previously.
We also offer two kinds of contact lenses for children that are designed to slow the progression of myopia (short-sightedness, as well as correcting their vision. More children are becoming myopic earlier on in life now, leading to increased short sightedness and potentially other related eye problems later on in life, such as retinal detachments.
Ortho K lenses work overnight to correct their vision whilst they sleep, so they don’t need to wear glasses or regular contact lenses during the day. They are also proven to help manage myopia and slow down its progress.
MiSight 1 Day contact lenses are another myopia treatment option for children, with children aged eight and over finding them easy to use and preferable to wearing glasses.
To help with the cost of contact lenses, we offer care plans with a monthly direct debit. Your plan can include a regular supply of lenses sent to your home, or you can select a plan to purchase lenses as and when you need them. We are always happy to discuss your needs and tailor a bespoke plan to suit you personally.
