It used to be that only the “geeks” wore glasses once upon a time. Thank goodness that we have moved beyond this casual stereotyping. Of course, glasses aren’t the only eye care solution available, that brings us to contact lenses. Unlike glasses where you need to think about upkeep, finding ways to keep them on during various activities or steaming up from wearing a mask, you really have a great choice with contact lenses today.
Of course, there is another benefit of wearing contact lenses… you don’t need to pick frames which can cause a sense of embarassment as well. No matter how much flattery you receive, it’s down to the individual if they really want to wear glasses or not. Remember, the most important thing is to maintain good eye healthcare which contacts and frames both achieve.
Because contact lenses have come on over the years, most people can wear them. Even if you use glasses daily, there will be times when wearing contacts can come in handy – such as playing sports, going out in the evening, on walks or evening doing a outdoor job braveing all the the elements.
Not all contact lenses are made the same way, that’s why we have different solutions to your lens prescriptions and requirements.
Disposable daily contact lenses
Ideal for those who suffer from allergies. There is little chance of pollen or dust particles to build up and irritate your sensitive eyes.
Weekly contact lenses
If you want to experience that fresh feeling of lenses every week, then the weekly contact lense is a solution you’re looking for. We stock a variety of well-known brands in our store.
Monthly contact lenses
You don’t need to order hundreds of lenses, you need a bathroom cabinet all for your collection either. With a monthly lens, you have a regular fresh feeling that you need to change every 28 days. Again, we stock a range of well-known brands such as Johnson & Johnson and Bausch & Lomb.
Bi-weekly contact lenses
As the title would suggest, this is a prescription that will leave your eyes feeling fresh every fortnight. From Johnson & Johnson to Bausch & Lomb we stock a wide variety of popular and well-known brands.
Ortho-K contact lenses
With Ortho-K contact lenses, you wear these whilst you sleep that work overnight to help improve “short-sightedness by temporarily correcting the shape of the cornea.” Once you remove them in the morning, your eye retains its new shape during the day providing clear and natural sight without the need to wear lenses or frames.
This has become a popular alternative to laser eye surgery and the revolutionary technology has helped the worsening of short-sightedness in children. If your child is predisposed and at risk to hereditary shortsightedness, this could be a great solution to safeguard their sight for later in life. Contact us to find out more.
