Monthly lenses are worn during the day, and at night left in a disinfecting solution ready to be worn the next day. The same lens is worn for a month, and then thrown away. These lenses are Great value for money, and are ideal for anyone wanting to wear lenses most of the time. Daily and Monthly lenses are also available for Prescriptions with Astigmatism.
We have a wide range of specialist contact lenses for more complex prescriptions, including lenses for Astigmatism, Varifocal lenses and Gas Permeable lenses.
Astigmatism is a focusing error of the eye that distorts vision. The higher the level of astigmatism, the poorer the person’s vision if it is not corrected. Astigmatism is very common, with more than 95% of the population having some degree of astigmatism. It often accompanies either myopia (short sight) or hyperopia (long sight) and affects people of all ages.
Varifocal contact lenses are prescribed for patients who require a distance prescription, for driving, as well a near prescription, for reading, generally required after the age of 40.
Gas permeable contact lenses are made of a firm, durable plastic that transmits oxygen. They offer excellent eye health: because they don’t contain water like soft lenses do, they resist deposits and are less likely than soft contacts to harbor bacteria.
