Most people who need to wear glasses can also wear contact lenses.
At the Liverpool Street store located at Bishopsgate, customers love the choice of designer frames but sometimes like to switch to contact lenses for certain occasions.
Identifying your contact lens needs
Store director, Rajesh Ramesh Chandegra says: 'The type of lens that is best for you will depend on a few things.
'How often will you wear them - all the time or for certain activities like sport? Or will you want to wear them all the time? The team here will firstly identify what your lifestyle needs are and your prescription, then we recommend from here.'
Willing to give them a trial?
Rajesh adds: 'We wouldn't want to sell you anything you’re not happy with, so before you commit to anything, we’ll let you try contact lenses free. You’ll get a full assessment and some help choosing the right brand and lenses to suit you.'
Innovations have advanced dramatically over the years in the contact lens industry, making all choices surprisingly comfortable and wearable. Following a full assessment, your friendly contact lens advisor at Bishopgate will run through these options and take into account your personal preferences:
