The Advantages of Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are a fantastic option for patients who would sometimes like an alternative to spectacle wear. There are a variety of contact lens types that are available as a convenient and effective means of improving your vision according to your individual hobbies and lifestyle requirements.

Contact lenses are great for part-time wear as well as for those who like to wear them for longer periods; there are options on offer for both. They are also ideal for people who are regularly active, those who play sports, and for people whose hobbies or occupations make it difficult to wear spectacles comfortably.

It is always important to remember that contact lenses should only be worn at the frequency recommended by our optician. This will be relevant to the type of contact lenses you have been prescribed. Every contact lens wearer should have an up-to-date pair of spectacles to wear when they do not have their contact lenses in.

Following your initial contact lens consultation and fitting appointments, it is important that you continue to visit us on the recommended basis for your aftercare appointments. This is not only so that we can ensure that the eye remains healthy and that your contact lens routine is being carried out safely, but also so that we can recommend the very latest and best contact lens and hygiene products for you.

You need a valid sight test prescription in order to book a contact lens consultation at our practice. To book your contact lens consultation, sight test, or both, please do not hesitate to contact us via our website or directly at the practice.
