• CONTACT LENSES

Contact lens consultation

This consultation is different to your eye test. It involves an in depth examination of the eyelids, tear film and the front of your eye. We measure the shape and size of your eye which helps us find the optimum fit for your contact lenses. You will spend time discussing your contact lens needs with our optician and then decide what to trial.

DAILY

These contact lenses are worn for one day and then thrown away. They offer a low maintenance flexible wearing schedule. You can wear them every day or just on special occasions. There are no solutions and every lens is sealed in a sterile airtight pack. The shelf life is normally 12-24 months from purchase.

TWO WEEK / MONTHLY

These contact lenses are designed to be used for 14 or 30 days and then thrown away.  You would wear the lens for a day and then remove, clean and store it till the next day. A contact lens case and solution are required with this lens type. They are only designed to be kept for 14 or 30 days regardless of how many times you wear them.
