For most people wearing contact lenses is easy & comfortable using one of the two main types of contact lens; rigid gas-permeable or soft. Contact lenses can be worn to correct both short sightedness & long sightedness. We can also supply contact lenses for you if your prescription includes a mild astigmatism.
The different types of contact lens are:
Re-usable: This type need disinfecting everyday after use to prevent harmful bacteria developing
Disposable lenses: Daily disposable lenses don't need cleaning or disinfecting as they are worn once and thrown away
Extended-wear lenses: These are designed for overnight wear and/or continuous wear for up to a month before being thrown away
It's important if you are new to contact lenses that you have an eye test and your lenses are fitted by a qualified optician. Also, you should have an up-to-date pair of glasses to wear when you want to remove your eye contacts.
Contact Lens Eye Tests
Before fitting you for contact lenses we always need to carry out a specific & additional tests to that for fitting glasses. This is important to take a measurement to ensure the curve & size of the contact lenses are comfortable & provide the correct vision for your eyes. Be sure to tell us when you come for your eyes testing if you're interested in wearing contact lenses.
Dry eyes can affect your ability to wear contact lenses comfortably. Please ask for more information when you next call to see us.
