Contact Lenses

Types of Contact Lenses


Soft contact lenses tend to be referred to as "disposable" if they are replaced at intervals of one month or less. Changing your lenses regularly means that deposits do not build up, your vision remains clear, your lenses remain comfortable and the risk of eye infection is reduced. Cleaning regimes are now much simpler and monthly disposable lenses are now available in most prescriptions.

People with astigmatism, a condition in which the eye is irregularly shaped causing distorted vision, were restricted to wearing glasses, but today's 'toric' contact lenses can provide clear vision. These lenses are available in monthly and daily disposable.

Bifocal and other multifocal contact lenses have been available for some years now and are very successful for a good number of people. Manufacturers continue to work hard to develop better versions to enable you to cope with presbyopia and we keep up to date with the latest products. 

Focus Dailies Progressive is the only daily disposable lens available to correct presbyopia. Not only does it give clear vision in the distance and up close, but is designed to help with intermediate vision in a similar way to varifocal spectacle lenses.

Silicone Hydrogel

The latest development in soft contact lenses is Silicone Hydrogel lenses. These lenses have very high oxygen transmitting abilities and are proving even more successful than expected.

People wearing silicone hydrogel lenses often claim it is as comfortable as not wearing lenses and practitioners are seeing fewer and fewer lens related problems in patients wearing these lenses.

Gas Permeable

Gas Permeable contact lenses are the modern version of hard corneal lenses as worn over the years by many people with great success. They take a little longer to get used to and to become fully comfortable but give very good vision especially for people with astigmatism or high prescriptions.

They are easier to handle and look after than soft lenses and secure enough for all normal activities and many sports but because they are relatively small, they are not ideal for contact sports. They have a longer life span than most soft lenses and can be changed every one or two years.

Contact Lens Scheme

We offer a Contact Lens Scheme for regular replacement of your contact lenses. Our monthly charges include the cost of the lenses, full aftercare, consultation fees and if required can also include cleaning solutions.

Fees for the initial fitting vary according to the type of lens and the experience and requirements of the patient. The amount will be advised at the first consultation.

We offer a range of prescription eye wear for a range of sporting activities
