Contact lenses…. are they right for me?

There are few things more important to us than our vision, that’s why it’s so important to have regular eye examinations and wear the correct powered spectacles. But our lifestyles and hobbies are so varied that glasses aren’t always the best option. Whether you’ve taken up a new sport or want a night out without needing your glasses, contact lenses can offer you a lot more freedom.

There are so many! Which lenses are best for me?

This is really dependent on your needs and lifestyle. Contact lenses are available in a variety of options from:

  • Dailies: disposable lenses perfect for occasional sports or social wear
  • Monthlies: a more cost effective choice for a full time lens wearer
  • Toric lenses: designed for more complicated prescriptions
  • Multifocals: designed to correct both distance and near vision

I want to give contact lenses a try, what’s the next step?

Our FREE contact lens trial consists of just three easy steps:

  1. Fitting appointment: The Optometrist will talk to you about your lifestyle and hobbies as well as your prescription suitability to prescribe the best lenses for you. Remember, to have a fitting appointment your eye examination must be in date too!
  2. Teach and Trial: In the teach you will be shown how to safely insert and remove your lenses, as well as any lens maintenance needed. When completed you will be able to try the lenses at home for the next 7-10 days depending on the lens type.
  3. Final assessment: Done at the end of your home trial, the Optometrist will check your vision and eye health again after a week of wear. The check usually takes around 20 minutes, after which the contact lens prescription is signed off and you can begin wearing at your leisure!


How much is this going to cost?

The contact lens trial itself is free of charge, from the initial fit to the final assessment and even the lenses themselves! So why not give them a try and see how they could benefit you.
