Contact lenses can complement your specific lifestyle

Today there are lots of different types of contact lenses available, all specifically designed to fit in with your lifestyle as well as manage visual conditions.

contactlensesThere are a variety of options, ranging from ‘dailies’ which must be disposed of every day, to weekly or even monthly varieties that can be cleaned and reused. They can correct a range of visual defects, including long-sightedness, short-sightedness and astigmatism. There are even varifocal lenses available if you prefer.

We also prescribe Nocturnal™ ortho-k contact lenses. These are a completely different approach to vision correction. You wear the lens while you sleep and take it out on waking, leaving you with corrected vision all day. Excellent for sports, outdoor activities or if for some reason you are having contact-lens related comfort problems. Visit our section on Nocturnal™ to find out more.

Contact lenses offer the same perfect vision you expect from your spectacles. They also provide you with a wider field of vision, and you don’t have to remove them for extended periods of time. This means that you can enjoy crystal clear sight all day without having to rely on your glasses. If you are a keen sportsperson, contact lenses not only enable you to have better peripheral vision, but are also more comfortable and far less likely to fall off mid-game!

Regardless of your specific requirements from your eyewear, at Fiona Jennings Optician you’ll find suitable contact lenses to meet your needs.

If you decide to try contact lenses, you will have a full introduction and demonstration from our optometrist before you leave the practice. We’ll show you how to insert and remove the lenses comfortably and safely, as well as how to keep them clean and free from bacteria. Routine reviews will allow us to monitor your vision, check your eyes are healthy and discuss new innovations when they become available.

As an independent practice, we can source contact lenses from any supplier. Acuvue lenses from Johnston & Johnston are particularly popular – they offer excellent performance and have a wide range of options.

Contact lenses can also be worn by children as young as eight years old, provided they’re responsible enough to care for them properly and keep them clean.
