There has never been a better time to wear contact lenses. New lens designs and materials are available and modern lenses are more comfortable and affordable than ever before.
Contact lenses give you the freedom to see all around without annoying rims of spectacle frames spoiling the view. Many people feel that they are more natural and comfortable wearing contact lenses.
These are the most popular because they are so comfortable to wear. They are easy to adapt to and gentle on your eyes. They do however, need to be replaced more frequently. Modern lenses allow extended wear and are available for people with astigmatism (an irregular shaped eye) and bifocal wearers. There are even daily disposable bifocals and daily disposable lenses for people with astigmatism. We also have a great range of coloured contact lenses for every day or the occasional special night out.
Silicone Hydrogel Lenses
The newest of the soft lens family and possibly the most advanced. These lenses feel like a soft lens, and behave like a soft lens but allow as much oxygen to get to the eye as some of the very best Gas Permeable lenses. As well as being used for people who have had problems, they are great for extended wear up to a month. These lenses are set to re-write the rules on soft lens performance.
Gas Permeable Lenses
These are recommended if you have a lot of astigmatism. They do take a little longer to get used to, but they last a lot longer than soft lenses. Bifocals and multi-focal lenses are also available.
Looking After Your Lenses
Unless you wear daily disposable lenses, you will need to clean and disinfect your contacts to ensure both the lenses and your eyes stay in good condition. The type of care system you use depends on the type of lenses you have and how they are worn. We will make sure you understand what to do before you take your lenses home.
