Contact Lenses

If you would like comfortable, all-round vision, the chance to pursue a more active lifestyle and an excellent alternative to glasses, contact us!

WOULD I BE ABLE TO WEAR CONTACT LENSES?

If you are wondering whether you are suitable for contact lenses, come in to discuss the possibilities and have a free trial. Because we take the time to really find out what needs you have, we can offer you contact lenses to suit you and your lifestyle. Our aim is to make wearing contact lenses simple and comfortable. Have you ever been told you are not suitable for contact lenses? Because we only fit beautifully-designed lenses made from high-quality materials, and because we have the time and patience to explore all the possibilities, we have had great success fitting patients who have been told by previous opticians that they cannot wear contact lenses.

CAN I TRY CONTACT LENSES?

You can book a free tolerance trial to see if contact lenses will suit you.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A CONTACT LENS TOLERANCE TRIAL?

Firstly we would have a discussion about why you would like to try contact lenses to help us decide which contact lenses will be the most suitable for you. We take some measurements and examine the front of your eyes in great detail. We then insert the contact lenses and you go out for a while to let them settle. When you return we will assess how your eyes have reacted to the lenses and do further tests to find out which will be the best leneses for you.

HOW DO I PUT CONTACT LENSES IN AND TAKE THEM OUT?

If you should decide to go ahead with contact lenese (and most of our patients who try them do) we book an appointment to teach you how to put them in and take them out, and how to look after them. You don't get to take them away until we are confident that you can handle them!

IS THERE ANY FOLLOW-UP TO SEE IF I AM GETTING ON WITH MY CONTACT LENSES?

After you start with your contact lenses we see you for an after-care appointment after about a fortnight, then a month, three months and then at least annually, to make sure that the contact lenses suit you, to make any adjustments that are required after the lenses have settled down and to keep you up to date. You are welcome to come in in between these times if you have any queries.

ARE CONTACT LENSES EXPENSIVE?

As your eyes and eyesight are so precious we made the decision in the practice that we would only fit lenses of the highest quality. The type of lenses required varies from person to person, but we have options for paying a monthly fee which covers the cost of your lenses, solutions and all your after-care appointments. Book an appointment on 01382 224620 to discuss your requierements, or email any queries to eyes@lindsayandjohnson.co.uk
