Whether you want a fresh look, the freedom to be more active, or just the ability to see your best, contact lenses are an excellent alternative to glasses. They will affect how you see and how other people see you.
Contact lenses are a suitable option for many people, including people with astigmatism. Our optometrist will talk to you to understand what you want from contact lenses and along with your prescription, assess the right type of contact lens for you.
WHY WEAR CONTACT LENSES?
The benefits of wearing contact lenses are numerous:-
• look good without frames blocking your face
• show off your makeup without glasses
• wear them all the time or just occasionally for socialising and special events
• get the freedom of movement needed when playing sport
• experience the freedom of clear, comfortable and convenient vision
• choose from a wide range of non-prescription sunglasses.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT TYPE OF CONTACT LENS FOR YOU
At Gill Opticians the process of purchasing contact lenses is simple.
After the initial eye examination you will be fitted with a pair of suitable lenses and then you can wander around town or sit in the practice with a coffee.
If you find the lenses comfortable you will be shown how to apply and remove the lenses and how to clean them if necessary by one of our experienced optical assistants.
We will then give you a free trial of the lenses to give you an idea if they fit in with your lifestyle.
ONGOING AFTERCARE AND ADVICE
Every 6 months you will need a contact lens check to ensure your lenses continue to fit properly, that you are seeing well and that your lenses are comfortable.
All this aftercare is completely free of charge as well as free appointments for any problems or queries you may have.
Many of our plans include free replacement lenses for ripped or lost lenses.
We are available for advice on the best products to care for your lenses such as cleaning fluids and contact lens cases if required.
