CONTACT LENSES

Contact lenses come in tens of thousands of combinations of size, shape and power designed to ensure comfortable fit and great vision.

Contact lenses are a discreet way of managing vision without having to use a pair of spectacles. Many patients choose contact lenses over spectacles because they are convenient, comfortable and capable of correcting vision without affecting appearance. There are two main categories of contacts – soft and hard. They can be used to treat most vision impairments including short sightedness, far sightedness, astigmatism and age-related vision loss.

The Optical Centre offers a wide variety of brands of contact lenses. Our optometrists are able to fit many types of prescriptions.

We carry a wide range of contact lenses including:

  • Acuvue
  • Bausch and Lomb
  • Ciba/Alcon
  • Coopervision
  • SynergEyes hybrid lenses
  • Rigid Gas Permeable Lenses
  • Scleral lenses

Am I a candidate for contact lenses?

You may be a candidate for contact lenses if you wear spectacles and are looking for a non-surgical alternative to eyeglasses.

What should I expect when I am fitted with contact lenses?

One of our optometrists will conduct a thorough eye examination and prescribe contact lenses based on those results.

How should I care for my eyes and contacts after my appointment?

You will be given extensive instructions and tips designed to help you protect your new contacts as well as your eyes.

 

 



Keratoconus

We are also highly experienced in the treatment of Keratoconus, a vision disorder which results in the normally round cornea or front surface of the eye becoming irregularly cone-shaped causing distorted vision and increased sensitivity to glare and light. Our professional team uses the latest technology and state of the art contact lenses to fit people with Keratoconus. The lenses used by the optometrist are specialised soft lenses, rigid lenses, hybrid combination soft and hard lenses and scleral lenses. For more info go to treatkeratoconus.com.
