Specsavers in Lowestoft is encouraging is people to consider the benefits of contact lenses and tackling some of the common misconceptions about lenses.

Store director, David Holcombe: ‘People often shy away from contact lenses because they think they’re too complicated to use. ‘We want to show people that anyone can use them and we are here to offer a step-by-step guide for a comfortable fit with the highest quality of care.’

Myth no.1 – “They are a hassle” A common misconception is that contact lenses are too complicated to use. However, daily disposable lenses can just be worn once and then thrown away without any cleaning necessary, making it easier for those with a hectic lifestyle.

Myth no.2 – “They are difficult to use” Stores are offering people a full test run of contact lenses so that they can be comfortable using them by themselves.

Myth no.3 – “My prescription is too complex for contact lenses” No prescription is too complicated for Specsavers – contact lenses are available for almost any prescription so everyone has access to them.

Myth no.4 – “They are uncomfortable” New high-tech materials mean that contact lenses can fit comfortably and are of the highest quality possible from Specsavers.

Myth no.5 – “They are expensive” Specsavers offers their customers great value, no matter which contact lenses they decide to go with. Direct debit customers are also given a complete package which is full of extra perks.

Myth no.6 – “I’m too young or old for contact lenses” Specsavers are giving contact lenses to people of all ages, no matter what their prescription is, and are encouraging parents to let their children try them out.


Once customers have decided on which lens is right for them, the store will give them one pair of monthly contact lenses or five pairs of daily disposable contact lenses to try, free.
