Ready to try contact lenses?
So, you’re thinking of giving contact lenses a go. Well, you’ve chosen a really good time. Contact lenses are easy to use and most people can now wear them, even those with more complicated prescriptions. Book an appointment today and we’ll help find the right lenses for you.
It doesn’t matter how young or old you are, what kind of prescription you have, or what kind of lifestyle you lead – almost anyone can wear contact lenses. If you and your optician are happy that you’re comfortable putting them in, taking them out, and cleaning them, then there’s really nothing stopping you.
It’s true it takes a bit of practice to use contact lenses but it doesn’t take long to get the hang of it. If you decide to try contact lenses, we’ll sit down and do a test run with you. We’ll show you how to put them in and take them out, go over dos and don’ts, answer any questions you may have, and dispel some of those pesky rumours. We’ll make sure you leave us feeling confident with your new lenses, and we’ll keep in touch afterwards to make sure you’re getting on with them.
Over the last few years, lens technology has moved forward at an unbelievable rate. So if you tried contacts before and didn’t get on with them, it may be time to give them a second chance. Today’s lenses are made with high-tech materials, like silicone hydrogel, that lets lots more oxygen into your eye, ensuring adequate hydration and comfort. Contact lenses are now so comfortable you wouldn’t even know you’re wearing them.
If you normally wear different glasses for different things, like one pair for reading and another for distance, you may have thought that contact lenses weren’t an option. But that’s no problem. We’ve got a great range of varifocal contact lenses that combine your different vision needs into one little lens. We also have toric lenses which help correct astigmatism. Whatever your prescription, there’s almost certainly a contact lens for you at Specsavers.
