There is no specific age limit for contact lenses and we are happy to fit anyone as long as we think they are mature enough to take responsibility for their own lenses.
There is no upper age limit for contact lenses, in fact there has been so many developments in lens technology, that even if you didn't get on with them in the past, you may now find them more comfortable than ever.
Yes! There is now a wide range of multifocal contact lenses and we are confident that we can find the right solution to your needs. So you can go to the theatre and not need reading glasses to see the menu in the restaurant afterwards!
Just because you wear yearly lenses does not mean that you definitely can't wear daily lenses ( for instance, when you go on holiday) speak to our optometrists about other options that are now available to you.
Yes, we have access to a wide range of glasses that will help you with your chosen sport, be it, swimming, skiing, golf, squash, shooting, fishing or flying. We can find the right solution for you. Our expert team of Dispensing Opticians, headed by Louise Rees, are always at hand to advise.
Yes, we have access to a wide range of ski goggles and keep many in stock. They are highly recommended as they not only protect your eyesight but give you clearer vision in all weather conditions, so enhancing your skiing experience.
Ski goggles can be worn on their own, or with a prescription insert. This means that if your prescription changes, you only need to change the insert and not the goggles.
We have a wide range of colours, styles and sizes and even have a WiFi enabled pair with a 12 megapixel camera, this records all your thrills (and spills!) and you can then transfer your photos and videos directly to your phone. Allows you to have instant access to all you shoot and for you to share with friends on social media.
While we always recommend that you book ahead, it is always worth calling Stella, Anne or Janet to see if we have any free appointments on the day.
As we have our own on-site glazing lab, we order your lenses and then Paul our technician cuts and fits them to your frames here, so negating the need to send them away. Many single vision glasses will be ready the next day, with bespoke varifocals taking slightly longer.
