Recently Contact lenses have become increasingly popular as both an alternative to glasses. With a broad range of different styles and types then there is usually a contact lens available to suit you.

If you play sports or perform activities where glasses aren’t practical, then contact lenses could be the solution you have been looking for. Contact lenses are more affordable, comfortable and convenient than they have ever been before. Please don’t hesitate to come into the practice or make an appointment to see our exclusive range of lenses for yourself. Our friendly and professional staff will be happy to walk you through the entire range.

Our optometrist will speak to you and show you the different varieties of  lenses available. They will also explain to you the different types of contact lenses, what they do, how they work and establish which contact lenses are best for you.

Included in this consultation are the tips and advice that you will need to apply and remove the lenses yourself.
