    It is now easier and more comfortable to wear contact lenses than ever before. Contact lenses are great for sports, social events or even just as an alternative to the everyday wearing of glasses. As a specialist contact lens practice we are able to fit and supply almost anyone with contact lenses, regardless of prescription. We also supply lenses to correct astigmatism and progressive lenses that are similar to varifocal spectacle lenses.

    As an independent practice, we deal with all the major lenses companies including Johnson and Johnson (Acuvue), Ciba Vision, and Bausch and Lomb. But we also deal with specialised lens makers for custom fit lenses if required. This allows us to offer you a choice of lenses to suit you, your visual requirements and your lifestyle needs.
    Contact lens technology is constantly evolving and advancing. If you have been told in the past that you are not suitable for contacts, this may not be the case now. So, if you have been thinking about getting lenses then why not talk to us about your options? We would only be happy to help.

    All our sunglasses either with or without your prescription are guaranteed to fully protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. When buying sunglasses it is important not just to choose a pair that make a fashion statement, but have good quality lenses too. This will ensure you do not get headaches due to the distortions often found in some poorer quality lenses. You will be able to choose from a wide range of custom-made prescription sunglasses, as well as non-prescription sunglasses from a range of manufacturers in standard, full UV tints and polarised versions.

    Photochromic lenses are special lenses that change tint precisely when needed. ‘Transitions’ lenses react quickly to every situation, sunlight or shade, indoors or outdoors. They are virtually clear indoors and can rapidly change to a stylish tint outdoors to give protection against harmful glare. They provide 100% protection from UVA and UVB radiation. They are available in a choice of brown or grey tints. They are really convenient when going in and outdoors to save you having to swap spectacles with sunglasses. However, they do not work as well inside a car due to the car windows absorbing the rays which activate the lenses.

    Polarising lenses go a step further than conventional sunglasses as they not only filter the harmful effect of bright sunshine but they filter out strong reflected light.
    Drivers can find that the reflected glare from the road surface is eliminated. Anglers can cut through the surface glare on water to see the fish below.

    Many sports take place outdoors it is important to ensure that you protect your eyes from sunlight, wind, dust and water. At the same time you need to make sure your visual performance is not restricted, and if possible enhanced by specialist eyewear.
