For those people who don’t want to wear glasses, contact lenses can provide a fantastic alternative, but some customers are worried about making the transition. Thankfully, Sanjay Patel, store director at Specsavers in Maidstone, is here to teach all local residents about the benefits of wearing contact lenses.

A word from the store director  

Sanjay said: ‘Contact lenses can provide a great alternative to specs for a different image, as well as being beneficial whilst doing sports of activities, such as going out.

‘Many people ask me what the best contact lenses for people who play sport are. It really depends on the type of sport and your lifestyle, but it’s worth bearing in mind that for instance, soft lenses tend to stay put better than gas-permeable lenses.

A worthy investment

‘While they are great for the majority of sports, contact lenses aren’t ideal for swimming as they can become dislodged. If you swim a lot, it might be worth investing in prescription swimming goggles.’
