Contact lens guide

Whatever your reasons for wearing contacts, and whatever your prescription, our optical experts will help you choose the perfect lenses. This choice will depend on a number of factors, including comfort, convenience and cost, but your eye health will always be our number one priority.

Thanks to advances in optical technology, there’s never been a better time to find contact lenses to suit your individual requirements.

Daily disposable lenses are used to correct short or long sightedness. They're the healthiest and most convenient way to wear contact lenses. They give you a fresh, clear lens every day, with no need for solutions. They're ideal for when you don’t want to wear glasses – either occasionally or every day.

Astigmatism is a common condition that affects many people - children as well as adults. It is caused by the shape of your eye and results in blurry or distorted vision at all distances, varying with the strength of the astigmatism. Toric contact lenses are specially designed to fit the shape of astigmatic eyes. They are available as daily or reusable contact lenses.

Monthly and two-weekly contact lenses are used to correct short or long sightedness. They're for daily wear but, rather than dispose of them at the end of the day, they can be cleaned and stored until you wear them again. They're ideal if you are looking for the most economical lenses.

Multifocal contact lenses are ideal for people with presbyopia – an age-related condition that affects almost everyone. As the lens of your eye becomes less flexible, it becomes harder for you to adjust your focus from far to near objects. The advanced optical technology used in multifocal lenses allows you to see both near and far.
