Whether you are short or long sighted, have astigmatism or require varifocals there is a contact lens available to correct your vision. There are many different materials and wearing schedules to suit your needs.
Silicone Hydrogel Contact
This special material is more oxygen permeable than older contact
lens materials, making it healthier for the eyes. Silicone
hydrogel contact lenses are now available as monthly, two-weekly
and daily disposables, so we can help you select the best option to
fit in with your needs and lifestyle.
Daily Disposable Contact
This type of lens is worn once, and then thrown away, allowing you
to have a fresh lens each time. They provide a simple, trouble free
and healthy way of correcting your vision. They are available
in a wide range of powers and designs, and can be worn full time,
or just on an occasional-wear basis, making them ideal for
holidays, sports and social events. They are also now
available in silicone hydrogel materials.
Extended Wear Contact
Some silicone hydrogel contact lenses are specially designed to be
worn continuously, even when sleeping. This can be very
convenient and great for people who need a flexible wearing
schedule. Your optometrist will discuss with you whether your
eyes are suitable for such a lens.
Rigid Gas Permeable Contact
'RGP's are fitted less often than soft lenses. They can
provide an excellent level of vision and comfort, and for some
people they are the best option. We offer an extensive range
of powers, designs and materials allowing us to select the optimum
lens for your eyes.
For certain eye conditions more specialist designs are
required. These can be RGPs, soft or even a combination of
both. Lenses for keratoconus (a condition affecting the
cornea) fall into this category. A fitting fee will apply for
specialist contact lens fitting.
