Contact Lenses

Contact Lenses Your Eyes Would Choose!

Gone are the days when you had to suffer to get on with contact lenses.

Leyland-Ortho-K-Box-GraphicToday’s modern materials and improved manufacturing process create lenses that can fit just about everybody. Whether for children, teenagers, adult or the ‘mature’ adult, there are lenses for everyone whatever the prescription.

It doesn’t matter how bad you think your eyes are, contact lenses can invariably be made to your prescription. Think about it: if a big thick lens can be made for your glasses, why can’t a much smaller, thinner lens be made for your eyes? Astigmatism is a big word. Often it is used to suggest you are not suitable for contacts. Not true – we have recently fitted a patient with 7D of astigmatism. And it doesn’t matter if you need them in varifocal, these are also available. We have also successfully fitted failed laser vision patients, restoring their night vision.

So if you have been told you’re not suitable or you think your eye care practitioner isn’t giving your eyes the attention they deserve, why not come for a Risk Free assessment and consultation*.

We use the latest topographic corneal mapping and digital biomicroscopy for assessment and recording of the condition of your eyes. This allows us to provide the highest standard of care to all our contact lens wearing patients. We consider this is essential for long term monitoring of the health of your eyes.

Should Children Wear Contacts?

Studies have shown that children and teens benefit from wearing contact lenses of various types from as young as eight years old (Walline et al, Choo et al). Concerns about problems with lenses in this age group would appear to be unfounded and results show them to have fewer symptoms compared to adults (LAJones, Contact Lens and Anterior Eye 32:2009).
