Why choose us?

Our eyes are unique, and what’s suitable for one person may not be suitable for another. This is why we provide bespoke, custom designed contact lenses that will suit your every need. Some of us may have been told that contact lenses aren’t for them, and they either need to wear glasses or even opt for Laser eye surgery. This isn’t the case for most of these people, we have been providing a solution for almost 50 years to help those of you who want to wear contact lenses, do just that.

If you are one of those people who have ever been told that your prescription is too complicated or you have tried contact lenses before and failed, we can almost certainly guarantee that we have contact lenses for you.

We fit every quality mass produced contact lens that is available whilst also working in partnership with contact lens manufacturers to produce custom designed contact lenses for those with complex or unusually shaped eyes. Custom designed contact lenses is a dying art which is why we receive many referrals from our professional colleagues.

Here at the Specialist Contact Lens practice we fit every type of contact lens. We provide Daily Disposables to 30 day Sleep In, Bifocals and Mutli-focals to correct Astigmatism. We have lenses to suit even the most complex. Many other opticians will only fit a few types of contact lenses, but we provide them all.
