Many customers are a bit nervous when it comes to contact lenses – they worry it will be difficult to put them on and remove them, that they will be annoying once on and that it might be difficult to take care of them.

A word from the store director  

Alistair Elgar-Williams, store director at Specsavers in Folkestone, is on a mission to reassure its customers and to show them the huge benefits of wearing lenses.

He said: ‘Contact lenses are very comfortable and more wearable than ever before. We have some great brands and packages available for those interested and we'd love to help those who are considering contact lenses but have a few questions before making the leap.

‘We can show you exactly how to put them on and remove them – we even have some videos that demonstrate it on our website. It might take a while for you to get used to them, but once you do you’ll never be able to take them off!

Easier than you think

‘Cleaning them is also very easy and we can point you towards the best cleaning liquids for your type of lenses.’
