No matter what your requirements, chances are there are contact lenses that are suitable for you
Are you in need of some eyewear, but don’t want to wear glasses? Perhaps you don’t like how they look or feel on your face, or are worried that they might get in the way of your active lifestyle. If this is the case, contact lenses could be the ideal solution for you.
Occasionally, people are put off the idea of trying contact lenses because they have to be positioned directly on the eyeball. However, developments in contact lens technology over recent years means that the type of lenses that are available on the market today are more comfortable than ever. Most contact lenses are made of a flexible and breathable silicon hydrogel, which allows oxygen through to the surface of your eye and doesn’t cause irritation.

What’s more, there are even different types of lenses available to suit your lifestyle. You can choose from ‘dailies’, which must be disposed of after use every day, ‘weekly’ lenses which can be cleaned and reused for up to a week, and even ‘monthly’ lenses which can be reused for up to a month.
Patients with particularly sporty or active lifestyles often find that contact lenses are preferable to glasses. They allow a wider field of vision rather than being restricted or blocked by the boundaries of the frame, and are much less likely to fall off and become damaged. They’re also almost invisible – unless you went for the coloured lenses, of course!
