Contact Lenses

Offering more comfort and convenience than ever before.

Choosing contact lenses

We pride ourselves on taking the time to tell you about all the possible options; we will ask you some simple questions to help determine which lens suits you.

  • Why do you want to wear contact lenses?
  • Is it for special sports pursuits, hobbies or simply as an alternative to spectacles?
  • How often do you want to wear them? For social use or all of the time?
  • Have you ever had any problems with your eyes?
  • What is your general health like?
  • Are you taking any medication?

The Examination

With the above information to hand, we will examine your eyes to check their health and suitability for contact lenses. Lenses will be chosen that are of the correct specification and as close in prescription as possible.

Contact Lens Assessment

Once we have determined the type of lens to suit your prescription needs, the next stage is to undertake a trial period with the proposed lens, so that you can find out if they’re right for you. Once applied, it is usual for the lenses to be left in for a short time in order to assess the fit and vision. In some cases, we may ask you to take a short walk whilst wearing the lenses to see how you feel.

At the end of this visit, we will order the lenses you require and 9 times out of 10 they arrive within 2-3 working days. If you decide not to proceed after the initial trial assessment, no charge will be made, apart from that of the initial eye examination.
