The start of the New Year sparks many of us to try something new.  And here to help those considering contact lenses for the first time are specialist advisors from Specsavers across London.

How about dual-use?

Maybe you are embarking on a new fitness regime and the thought of wearing a pair of frames while running around a football or netball pitch is off-putting?  Specsavers contact lens advisors across every store in London are familiar with this dilemma.  'We have many sporty customers who are dual users of frames and contact lenses.  Taking that leap may seem a bit daunting, but once you try them, you are converted!' says Unhar Gupta, divisional chair for Specsavers in London.

Types of lenses

Innovation has evolved massively over the years.  Contact lenses are more comfortable and there are different types to suit sport lovers. Says Unhar Gupta; “The plus point for contact lenses is that they offer a great field of vision when playing sports.  You do not need to worry about any protective headgear getting in the way or an expensive pair of frames getting damaged.  You can even buy contact lenses with a UV filter to protect eyes from the sun making them ideal for cricket, golf and tennis players.’
