How can wearing contact lenses benefit you?

Wearing glasses can have some downsides, especially during summer. In hot weather, they can slide down your nose more often, you may have to keep switching them for prescription sunglasses when you’re out and about in the sunshine, and they can obstruct your view or performance when exercising and playing sports. So, what’s the solution?

Contact lenses! Even if you’ve tried lenses before or been told they’re not suitable for you, a lot has changed in the contact lens world over the past decade, so it’s well worth giving them a second chance.

Contact lenses for everyone

Advances in technology mean that contacts are more comfortable and breathable to wear now than ever before, and more types are available to suit virtually any prescription and lifestyle need.

Disposable contact lenses

Disposable soft contact lenses need to be replaced daily, weekly, fortnightly, or monthly. As an independent opticians practice, we’re not tied to any particular brand, so we can help you choose the perfect lenses from a range of suppliers to suit your vision and lifestyle.

Specialist contact lenses

As well as the usual disposable contact lenses, we can also provide several different specialist lenses.

These include:

  • toric contact lenses for astigmatism
  • contact lenses for keratoconus and irregular corneas; including RGP, scleral, soft and Hybrid options
  • multifocal lenses for people who usually wear bifocal or varifocal glasses
  • MiSight myopia management lenses for children, designed to slow the progression of short sightedness, as well as correcting their vision
  • Ortho-K lenses for adults and children, designed to be worn at night to correct your vision while you sleep, leaving you lens and glasses free during the day

Benefits of contact lenses

There are lots of benefits to swapping your glasses for a pair of contact lenses. For some people, it’s an option for specific occasions, like playing sports, going on holiday, or if they’re going to an event and don’t want to wear glasses. For others, contact lenses are part of daily life, preferred for convenience, comfort, and aesthetics over glasses.
