Following Specsavers Ripon recent relocation to Market Place West, the increased capacity has allowed the store the opportunity to expand our ability to provide contact lenses to those who want to wear them.

Those who have previously been told that they are not suitable for contact lenses because they need varifocals, reading glasses or have astigmatism are now suitable to wear an increased range of contact lenses. Thanks to advances in contact lenses, both daily and monthly disposable lenses are now available to improve vision and comfort.

Specsavers in Ripon is now offering customers a free trial to fit and clinically assess your contact lenses and offer advice on how to expertly handle your lenses and keep them in top condition.

The opticians’ highly trained and dedicated care team will be on hand to provide advice and support, both during your trial period and through your continued future wear.

A word from the store director 

Ophthalmic Director, Katherine Friis, said: 'We love being able to improve our client's vision and lifestyles with contact lenses. Especially with the added convenience of our Lensmail home delivery scheme. This means they benefit from an all-inclusive system including delivery, aftercare and sight test appointments and a generous discount on spectacles.'

Whilst the cardboard boxes and solution bottles can be recycled through regular household recycling, this is not the case for the plastic cases for contact lenses, which often get sent to landfill. Contact lenses should never be washed down the sink either, as the plastic may cause blockages or end up in the water system.

Specsavers Ripon is proud to offer a contact lens recycling scheme in-store. Any contact lens waste produced in-store or brought in by the public, regardless of where purchased, will be stored and sent to TerraCycle, an innovative recycling company that has become a global leader in recycling hard-to-recycle materials.
