If you want to wear contact lenses to correct your vision contact us to arrange for a no-obligation contact lens fitting and trial.  Only registered optometrists, contact lens opticians and medical practitioners can fit contact lenses.

Our contact lens fittings include a thorough eye and contact lens examination. This will determine if your eyes are healthy and if you are suitable for contact lens wear. Our optometrists and/or contact lens opticians will also take a series of measurements of your eyes to find the best possible lens type for fit and vision. They will ask about your visual and lifestyle requirements.

Our optometrists and/or contact lens opticians will try some contact lenses on your eyes so that you can see how they feel, and they will then check their fit and your vision. Once you’ve tried the lenses, you can decide together whether contact lenses are right for you.

Before you can buy any lenses you’ll need to learn how to look after them. We’ll teach you how to put them on your eye and remove them before you take them away to try. Once you’ve worn the lenses, you’ll need to come back about two weeks later to have the health of your eyes checked and the fitting completed.

A Contact Lens trial gives you an opportunity to find out more about contact lenses and seek advice from our friendly, expert team.

Think about how often, when and where you would like to wear contact lenses. Is it going to be every day, for going out or playing sport, or maybe just for special occasions? Our optometrists and/or contact lens opticians will help you decide on the best type of lens to suit your needs and give advice on how you how often you should replace them.

No. There are a great many different types of contact lenses and thousands of different fittings. Each contact lens type needs to be fitted to meet your individual requirements. Contact lenses are not interchangeable and you should never change your lens type, never share your lenses or change the way you wear your lenses without the recommendation of your practitioner.

Yes, they can, young children, and even some babies, can be fitted with contact lenses. Research has shown that children can wear contact lenses successfully and many benefit from contact lens wear. Now that most contact lenses are replaced often, there is no need to wait until your eyes have stopped changing to wear contact lenses.

Certainly not, thanks to modern contact lenses there’s no reason why age should be a barrier. Bifocal and multifocal contact lenses are available for those who need multiple lens powers for distance and close work. You may want to wear contact lenses just some of the time and spectacles for the rest. It’s really easy to do.

The cost of contact lenses varies depending on the lens type and the frequency of wear. We can advise on the cost of check-ups in the price of lenses. You can pay as you go or we offer a monthly eye plan payment scheme.

The huge advances in contact lens technology over recent years means that almost everyone can wear contact lenses these days. Modern contact lenses are convenient and comfortable. From daily disposables to all day – all night lenses contact lenses are now easier to use than ever before.

Many people who have previously been advised they will be unable to wear contact lenses are now able to enjoy the freedom they provide.

Our optometrists regularly fit contact lenses to children. There is no set minimum age for children to begin contact lens wear. It depends largely on their maturity and motivation. Children as young as 8 or 9 are able to wear contact lenses successfully. Many are keen to try contact lenses, but find that they’re not quite ready. In this case we defer a second trial until their early teens. Contact us if you wish to discuss your child’s suitability in more detail.
