Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are a comfortable and convenient alternative to spectacles

New materials and manufacturing techniques ensure many more people are able to enjoy the freedom from spectacles.

Contact lenses are now able to correct long and shortsightedness, astigmatism and reading difficulties with age (presbyopia).

Contact Lens Fitting

After initial examination and measurements, trial lenses are used to show how comfortable they are and determine the best fit for your eyes.

Contact Lens Collection

You will be shown how to insert and remove the lenses and how to look after them. Most lenses fitted now are thrown away at the end of each day and therefore don’t need cleaning.


Regular aftercare is advised to check the health of the front of the eye and check the continued suitability of the lenses.
