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.
