With our vast experience in fitting contact lenses to patients with complex requirements at a number of NHS Hospital Clinics for many years, our optometrists are experienced in fitting specialist lenses for various conditions including Keratoconus, PMD (pellucid marginal degeneration), Aphakia, Post-graft (keratoplasty) and post-surgery (Lasik /Lasek), Albinism, Nystagmus and prosthetic lenses.
KERATOCONUS AND IRREGULAR CORNEA
We have a particular interest and expertise in Keratoconus.
The founder of the practice Tony Shephard devoted his professional life to developing contact lenses to correct Keratoconus and other corneal irregularities. He wrote various papers and lectured home and overseas on Keratoconus.
We use a vast range of specialist Keratoconus lenses including Acuity AK corneal lenses; Kerasoft, KIC, Acuity Soft K, Novakone and Rose K2 Soft Keratoconus lenses; SO2 Clear, Comfort 15 and Scotlens KCS corneoscleral lenses; Synergeyes family of hybrid lenses; Scotlens Easy Scleral, ICD and Zenlens mini scleral lenses.

Post Surgery Lenses
Other conditions benefiting from custom made lenses include pellucid marginal degeneration (PMD), post-keratoplasty (corneal transplant), and high astigmatism where conventional lenses do not provide sufficient clarity.
