Are contact lenses comfortable?
Yes. In fact, materials, designs and technologies used to make soft contact lenses are always evolving and improving, which means they are becoming more comfortable all the time. Some of the best lenses feel like you are wearing no lens at all.
How often can I wear them?
If you wish, you can wear them every day. There are many different types of contact lenses, which means they need changing at different times. Examples include: daily disposable contact lenses, which are new every day, and reusable lenses that you can wear for up to a month at a time.
Are they difficult to apply?
Not especially. You do have to be confident when putting them onto your eye and removing them. We will show you how to do that safely, so don’t worry.
Can a contact lens slip behind your eye?
No, but it can pop underneath your eyelid. A well-fitting contact lens will remain on the front of your eye until you choose to take it off.
I have astigmatism. Can I wear contact lenses?
Yes you can. There are a wide variety of contact lenses available to correct astigmatism, including daily disposable lenses.
I wear reading glasses/varifocals. Can I wear contact
Again, yes you can. There are plenty of choices if you need a reading prescription, including new multifocal contact lenses. One of our team of experts and contact lens fitters will be on hand to guide you on the best lens for your visual needs.
Benefits of wearing contact lenses:
