Types of contact lenses

Explore our comprehensive range

Whether you’re short or long sighted, have astigmatism or require varifocals we have contact lenses available to correct your vision. All our lenses are supplied by leading manufacturers and we offer many different materials and wearing schedules to suit your needs.

With such a wide range of options available, many of our customers use both contacts and glasses. Your optometrist will discuss the best options with you at your consultation. Home delivery options may apply.

Silicone hydrogel contact lenses

This material is more oxygen permeable than older contact lens materials, making it healthier for the eyes. Available as monthly, two-weekly and daily disposables.

Daily disposable contact lenses

Worn once, then thrown away, these lenses give you a fresh lens each time. It’s the simple, trouble-free and healthy way of correcting your vision.  They can be worn full time, or just on an occasional wear basis and we recommend them for holidays, sports and social events. These are ideal for children starting out with contact lenses.

Rigid gas permeable contact lenses

'RGP's provide an excellent level of vision and comfort.  We offer an extensive range of powers, designs and materials allowing us to select the perfect lens for your eyes. A fee applies for fitting.

Myopia management lenses

These are specially designed to minimise short sightedness in children as they move into adulthood. As soon as children become short sighted soft daily disposable lenses should be considered.

Specialist lens designs

For certain eye conditions (e.g. keratoconus) more specialist designs are required. A fee will apply for specialist contact lens fitting.

Extended wear contact lenses

These lenses are specially designed to be worn continuously, even when sleeping.  We find them convenient for people who need a flexible wearing schedule.
