Contact Lenses

These days people who need vision correction don’t want the same correction for all their activities. You don’t have one pair of shoes for the office, the bedroom, the walk in the country, the beach and the tennis court do you?

So although specs may be great for indoors, many people of all ages prefer the freedom of contact lenses especially for more dynamic activities. They provide a wider field of vision without the disadvantages of spectacle lenses splattered with raindrops or misting up when you get hot.

Many people have found that contact lenses fit their lifestyle perfectly.

Whether you want lenses for all-day, everyday, or just for occasional use for sport or that special occasion we have the lenses to fit your needs. We frequently successfully fit lenses to people who have been told by other opticians that they are unsuitable for contact lenses.

Lenses these days are available in high-performance designs and materials so that they are healthier and more comfortable than ever before.

Whether you have tried lenses before and given up or want to try them for the first time, our skilled optometrists will find the lens that is right for you.

Because we are an independent practice we have the freedom to choose contact lenses from any supplier.

Our first-choice for many is the Acuvue range of lenses from Johnson & Johnson VisionCare, and our practice is an Acuvue Centre of Excellence.

We also supply lenses from all the mainstream manufacturers: CibaVision, Coopervision, Sauflon and Bausch&Lomb as well as more specialist labs like Ultravision and No7.

Contact Lens Scheme

Most of our contact wearers choose to join our EyeCare Scheme. In return for a monthly professional fee they receive:

Full annual eye examination and Contact Lens review
Unlimited additional Contact Lens follow-up exams as clinically necessary
Contact Lenses supplied at LOW prices (usually below internet prices)
30% discount on spectacles (Most CL wearers still also wear specs sometimes!)
20% discount on our great range of sunglasses (to wear with CLs) and other stuff

We recommend that all our contact lens wearers join the scheme as, apart from being great value, it spreads the cost and removes the uncertainty of having to pay for unplanned visits.

You also have the option of pay-per-visit and buying lenses at non-scheme prices if you prefer.


We constantly aim to offer you quality, value and personal service.

Should your frame or lenses be found to have a manufacturing defect during the first year after purchase we will repair or replace them free of charge (excludes normal wear and tear).

Our fees include lifetime cleaning and aftercare, in order to maintain the comfort and fit of your glasses.

Price Guarantee

Some people expect small independent business will always be expensive. We won’t claim to always be the cheapest, but on a like-for-like comparison we are confident that our prices are similar to other opticians, including the likes of Vision Express or Boots. For some products our prices are cheaper than our competitors. We do prefer to recommend the very best products to give the best vision, comfort and quality, but we can always offer less-expensive alternatives.

If you do find exactly the same product selling for less at an optical retailer within a ten-mile radius we will lower our price to match. A formal written quote must be supplied to enable us to price match.

Actually I was going to drop you a note, simply to congratulate you on the staff you recruit, and train. On a recent visit we saw 3 of them, and they were all quite excellent both in face-to-face meetings and, where necessary, follow-up on email or tel. So my score would be 11 out of 10
