Why Not Try Contact Lenses?

Contact lenses are a great alternative to wearing glasses.

If you prefer not to wear glasses or your lifestyle is not suited to wearing glasses on a daily basis, contact lenses are your best bet. With advances in technology, today’s contact lenses offer more comfort and convenience than ever before.

You can choose to use daily disposable lenses, which take away the added hassle of using cleaning solutions. Alternatively, reusable contact lenses are perfect for a frequent lens wearer and are especially helpful if you have complex vision issues.

We offer a wide selection of different types of contact lenses including toric, multifocal and coloured lenses.

Silicone Hydrogel Contact Lenses

This material is more oxygen permeable than older contact lens materials, making it healthier for the eyes. Available as monthly, two-weekly and daily disposables.

Daily Disposable Contact Lenses

Worn once, then thrown away, these lenses give you a fresh lens each time. It’s the simple, trouble-free and healthy way of correcting your vision. They can be worn full time, or just on an occasional wear basis and we recommend them for holidays, sports and social events. These are ideal for children starting out with contact lenses.

Myopia Management Lenses

These are specially designed to minimise short-sightedness in children as they move into adulthood. As soon as children become short-sighted soft daily disposable lenses should be considered. Find out more here.

Extended Wear Contact Lenses

These lenses are specially designed to be worn continuously, even when sleeping. We find them convenient for people who need a flexible wearing schedule.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most people can now wear contact lenses. Advances in lens materials, designs and fits allow us to correct almost all types of vision including astigmatism and the need for a reading correction.
You can’t wear contact lenses all the time. Your eyes need a rest every evening (unless you are wearing extended wear lenses) and preferably one day a week if they’re going to stay healthy. Even with the best care, they can become irritated or infected. If you don’t have an up-to-date pair of glasses, you either won’t be able to see during those times or you’ll end up wearing your lenses when it is damaging to do so.
The golden rule with contact lenses is: if in doubt take them out! And come and see us as soon as you can. Then we can work out if there is any damage or deposits making them uncomfortable or if it is something else affecting your eyes.
