About Us

The Specialist Contact Lens Practice was first established in 1973 and was the first of its kind to be devoted to fitting contact lenses in the UK. Our specialist practitioners offer over a decade of optical experience and are supported by a dedicated staff team who have a wealth of optical knowledge.

In 1974 The Contact Lens practice was one of a few practices in the world to clinically trial the first Permalens (soft sleep in lens) for the Food & Drug Administration, and have since worked with a number of manufacturers to help design contact lenses.

Patients visit us who have never worn contact lenses before, to those whom have tried and failed or who have been told that they cannot wear contact lenses. Since the practice began we have seen and fitted some of the most complicated prescriptions. If you are interested in wearing contact lenses, chances are that we have a lens that is right for you.

Did you know that 80% of vision impairment is actually preventable? Regular sight tests can help detect eye conditions before they affect your vision. They can even detect other serious conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and even brain tumours. Don’t take your vision for granted… book your sight test with us today. Our Vision is Your Vision.
