We make choosing the right Contact Lenses easy.
Many people now prefer contact lenses to wearing glasses. The technology behind contact lenses is continually improving, and contact lenses are now a viable alternative to glasses for a many more people. But the choice of lens types can be bewildering.
- Soft contact lenses or Rigid contact lenses
- Extended wear lenses or Disposable contact lenses
- Gas Permeable (GP) contact lenses
- Semi-scleral contact lenses
- Multifocal contact lenses
- Tinted cosmetic lenses
- Standard or toric contact lenses
Choosing the right type of lenses is too important to be rushed.
That’s why we always give a 45 minute initial consultation so that there is plenty time to discuss your needs and explain your options.
To assess whether contact lenses are a viable option for you, we need to consider a number of factors including
- Your prescription (short sighted, long sighted, presbyopic)
- Your job
- Your lifestyle
- Your personal preferences
- Your budget

Ortho-K, (or orthokeratology to give it its full name), harnesses the discovery that specially shaped hard lenses can, when worn overnight, gently reshape the front part of the eye, correcting short sightedness without the need for daytime use. This effect lasts all day but you should remember that, if the overnight use of these lenses is discontinued, the eye will eventually revert to its previous shape and the short-sightedness will return.
