Which contact lenses are best for you?

We supply different types of contact lenses to suit different prescriptions, eye shapes and preferences.

Before you decide to start wearing contact lenses we advise you book an appointment for an eye examination. We can then advise you on which lenses will be best for you.

For more information on our range of contact lenses please call us on 0118 981 0267 or book an appointment.

These are also soft lenses. You can wear the lenses every day for two weeks or a month but must take them out at night, clean them and store them in the solution your optician recommends.

They’re more cost-effective than daily disposables if you wear contact lenses every day, oralmost every day.

These are also soft lenses.

You can wear the lenses every day for two weeks or a month but must take them out at night, clean them and store them in the solution your optician recommends.

They’re more cost-effective than daily disposables if you wear contact lenses every day, or almost every day.

Continuous or extended wear contact lenses allow more oxygen to pass through to your eye. This means you can wear them for a week, and in some cases up to a month, without taking them out.

They are particularly suitable for people who: have certain conditions such as amblyopia; have particularly poor vision and need to be able to see well if they have to get up in the night; may need to act in a hurry, for example to respond to an emergency call.

If you use continuous wear contact lenses you’re more at risk of getting an eye infection. Therefore, always ask your optician for advice before you use them.

If you have astigmatism, toric lenses will help you see clearly. With astigmatism, the cornea or lens isn’t perfectly curved. Toric lenses are specially shaped to fit this irregular curve and so correct the way light refracts. They also have different horizontal and vertical focussing powers to correct the blurry vision astigmatism causes.

Rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses give you clearer vision than soft lenses. They can also last longer than soft lenses. However, because they are a rigid lens, it may take you a while to get used to them, and some people never do.

If you have irregular corneas, for example keratoconus, RGP lenses are the best option for you as they correct your vision better than soft lenses can.

Multifocal contact lenses are an alternative to varifocal glasses. They correct presbyopia, an age-related condition that makes it harder for you to focus on anything that’s close up.

Like varifocal glasses, multifocal lenses have a gradual transition between different prescriptions for distance viewing and close reading.

Cosmetic lenses can change the colour of your eyes. They can also change the shape of your eyes, for example so they look like cats’ eyes, add a picture or pattern.

We supply a wide range of cosmetic lenses, both with and without a prescription.
