Contact lenses can provide freedom from glasses for most people!
Contact lenses are a great alternative for those who play sport, enjoy water activities, or, occasionally, would just like to change their look. Whatever your needs, our optometrist will help you find the contact lens to give you the freedom you deserve.
Daily Disposable Contact Lenses
For less than the price of a cup of coffee, you can wear a fresh set of contact lenses every day. These lenses are single use only and therefore require absolutely no maintenance, and provide the ultimate in flexibility as lenses can be worn as often or little as required. Daily disposable contact lenses are ideal for people who enjoy a busy lifestyle, travel or play sports.
Extended Wear Contact Lenses
The advent of silicone polymers has revolutionized contact lens wear. “Silicone Hydrogel” lenses breathe up to six times better than standard contact lenses making them a far healthier option for your eyes, and also suitable for extended day & nightwear, up to 30 days continuous wear. The latest generation of silicone polymer lenses is now available making them even more comfortable than ever.
Replacing your contact lenses frequently is the most hygienic way to maintain successful contact lens wear, and dramatically reduces the risk of contact lens failure.
Multifocal Contact Lenses
When we approach the age of 40 and onwards we develop a condition called “presbyopia”. This means we can no longer focus our eyes adequately in order to simultaneously view distance and near objects with clarity and comfort. This condition is easy to correct for with bifocal or multifocal glasses, but much harder with contact lenses. Recent technological advances in lens optics have allowed for the development of simultaneous viewing “Multifocal” contact lenses. These lenses work surprisingly well and allow the wearer to see adequately at all distances, negating the need for glasses for most tasks.
