Our Acuvue-accredited practices provide consistently excellent contact lens fitting and aftercare
Are you already a long-term glasses wearer? Perhaps you’ve just received a new eyewear prescription and don’t feel that glasses would suit your lifestyle. If this is the case, contact lenses could be the perfect solution for you.
Contact lenses sit directly on the eyeball and can correct long- and short-sightedness as well as astigmatism and presbyopia. Some patients are unsure about the discomfort of having a lens within their eye, so do take advantage of our free contact lens trial to make sure you’re comfortable before you commit to this type of eyewear.
You can be sure that you’re always in the best possible hands: all of our practices are accredited Acuvue Centres of Excellence. This status is achieved through continued training and development of our staff, meaning that you’ll consistently receive the most up-to-date and thorough eye care.
Types of Contact Lenses
Soft, disposable lenses are the most common, and are generally made of a flexible silicon hydrogel. Extended wear (overnight) lenses are made of a slightly different material which not only prevent lens dehydration throughout the day but are also safe to wear whilst you’re asleep too. Multifocal or varifocal lenses give you the best of both worlds – clearer vision for both close and distant focus.
You may wish to pay for your contact lenses & aftercare appointments by a convenient monthly direct debit. This option is best suited to patients who wear their contact lenses for most of the week – though some patients do choose to just pay for their eyecare via direct debit and then buy lenses as required.
Alternatively, you can use our ‘pay as you go’ scheme, where you pay for your sight test and contact lens check annually and purchase contact lenses and solutions as you require them. This is a popular solution for patients who wear contact lenses infrequently.
