Daily contact lenses
Daily contact lenses represent the ultimate in comfort and convenience as they eliminate the need for daily cleaning and disinfection. They can be worn either on full-time or occasional basis. They are simply discarded at the end of the wearing period. Having fresh lenses every day helps to maintain your eyes in optimum health.
With daily contact lenses, you can wear them as infrequently as you like. The packs of contact lenses normally have long shelf life. Therefore, if you buy three months’ supply and only wear them a couple of times a week, the box would probably last you for a year. Some patients choose to wear lenses only for certain sports, evenings out or holidays, and this is fine. However usually once you have tried the lenses and experienced the comfort, convenience and excellent vision you will probably want to wear them more often!
Daily disposable lenses are available to most prescriptions including toric lenses to correct astigmatism, multifocal and coloured contact lenses.
We usually suggest daily disposable lenses as the first lens of choice for children. These contact lenses are the easiest to use and offer the best health benefits. They are also economical if your child should lose or break one. The lenses are single use thus eliminating the need to clean or store the lens which can be difficult for children to comply with.
Two-Weekly and Monthly Disposable Lenses
These are soft lenses that when used are cleaned and stored in a container. After a month or 2 weeks, they are then disposed of.
Like daily disposable contact lenses, these are available to virtually every prescription including toric contact lenses to correct astigmatism, multifocal and tinted lenses.
Extended Wear Lenses
These lenses are designed to be worn continuously for a period of up to 30 days. Although this is not a recommended option for most people, some people enjoy the convenience of extended wear or may have specific requirements making this an attractive option. It is important for people wearing extended wear lenses to have regular check-ups to monitor the health of their eyes.
All of our lenses are normally supplied on convenient monthly direct debit which includes unlimited after-care for complete peace of mind. Members of our Direct Debit plans are also entitled to free sight test and discounts on spectacles.
