Those who wish to correct their vision but do not wish to be limited by wearing spectacles will often consider wearing contact lenses. A small corrective lens placed directly on to the eye, contact lenses have the following advantages over spectacles:
- They are virtually invisible.
- They offer a wider field of view.
- They are safer and less restricting when playing sport.
It is now easier and more comfortable to wear contact lenses than ever before. No longer do you have to be either a contact lens or spectacle wearer. Now, you can choose either spectacles or contact lenses whenever you want. Perhaps you have a sporting or leisure activity, or a special occasion that would be more enjoyable when wearing contact lenses.
We supply contact lenses from every major contact lens manufacturer. This allows us to offer you a choice of lenses to suit you, your visual requirements and your lifestyle needs. Some brands are worn just once and then thrown away, eliminating the need and expense of contact lens solutions. These lenses can be ideal for children and teenagers.
As a specialist contact lens practice we are able to fit and supply almost anyone with contact lenses, regardless of prescription or age. We also supply lenses to correct astigmatism and progressive lenses that are similar to varifocal spectacle lenses. So you no longer have to be under 40 to benefit from contact lenses.
Contact Lenses, like spectacles, can now be used to correct the following sight conditions:
- Myopia (Shortsightedness)
- Hyperopia (Farsightedness)
- Astigmatism (Distorted vision)
- Presbyopia (Need for reading glasses)
With the advances in contact lens technology it is now also possible to get multi-focal contact lenses which act much in the same way as varifocal spectacles, correcting vision for both distance and reading.
