If you haven’t worn contact lenses before – don’t worry. Most people are surprised by how comfortable they feel and how easy and convenient they are to use.
It is important to do a full eye examination before we fit contact lenses, to check the general health of your eyes and to find your optical prescription. Currently we charge £45 which includes retinal photographs.
Once this is done the optometrist can discuss which contact lenses would be most suitable for your eyes.
If you decide to go ahead we first show you how to handle the lenses, and once you are comfortable putting them in and out we give you enough trial lenses for a week or so. There is a charge of £60 - £90 depending on the complexity of the lenses required.
After the trial we will examine your eyes again to ensure the contact lenses are allowing enough oxygen to the front of your eyes and are giving you the best comfort and vision. There is no charge for this as this is included in your initial fitting fee. Once the fitting is complete we will enrol you on our aftercare plan and you can start ordering contact lenses.
Our Independent Practitioners are highly qualified, skilled professionals, with your best interests at heart. They benefit from years of training and experience, designed to take care of your eyes. They will take time to understand you and your lifestyle and make the best recommendations to suit your needs.
As an independent practice we are able to choose from a wide range of manufacturers to find the best spectacles and contact lenses for you.
We strongly believe in continuity of care. We are proud to have been looking after the eyecare needs of our many long term existing patients and look forward to looking after your eyes for many years to come.
