When it comes to contact lenses, some people are still under the impression that they are uncomfortable to wear and only suitable for young people.
Contacts offer a comfortable and convenient alternative to wearing your spectacles. Whether you have an active lifestyle or are after a different look for a special occasion, contact lenses offer you the freedom to enjoy clear vision without glasses.
Contact lenses today are made from materials which self lubricate and deliver high quantities of oxygen to the eye – so that they can be comfortably and safely worn for longer periods of time.
Why Choose Contact Lenses?
Which Contact Lens Is Right For You?
There are contact lenses to cater for almost every lifestyle and prescription.
Whether you’re short-sighted, long-sighted, or require multi-focal vision correction, there are several options available in daily, weekly or longer-wear varieties.
Following a contact lens eye examination, we’ll recommend the best lens to suit your lifestyle and visual needs.
If you are new to lenses, we’ll guide you through contact lens fitting and after care so that you can wear them with confidence.
To ensure that you enjoy your best vision with lenses and your eyes stay healthy, we advise an annual contact lens check-up to keep your prescription up to date.
