Contact Lenses for Children

We regularly fit contact lenses for children, including pre-teens and have great experience fitting and teaching contact lens wear for young patients.

We can offer specialist lenses for children including Myopia Control and Ortho-K lenses.

Specialist soft lenses

If you need a strong or unusual strength soft lens, we use several independent specialist suppliers, who offer a uniquely wide range of powers, opening up contact lenses to people who may have been told that they are not suitable to wear them before.

Hard – RGP and Scleral Lenses

We can fit, supply and provide aftercare for the wide selection of hard lenses, including RGP, Hybrid and Scleral contact lenses. We use a topographer to calculate precise measurements for these made-to-fit lenses.

Scleral lenses are a specially designed lens type that sits over the front of your eye, often used as medical contact lenses they are very useful for patients suffering from keratoconus or irregular corneas.

Scleral and hybrid lenses also have the widest power range of all contact lenses.

Direct Debit Payment Scheme

For full time or occasional contact lens wear, our contact lens scheme offers regular direct debit payments for convenience and now includes home delivery of your lenses.
