Prescribing contact lenses is a complicated process. Contact lenses must not only correct refractive errors, but must also fit without causing any injury to the surface of the eye. They must move on the surface of the eye and allow the lids to ride over them with each blink, without being uncomfortable. They must also not provoke any reaction from the eye or the immune system. Professional care and advice is essential.
We prescribe the latest in disposable soft contact lenses and rigid gas permeable lenses as required. For our myopic patients we offer specialised Orthokeratology contact lens fitting which allows overnight correction of myopia whilst sleeping. During the day vision is clear without the need for spectacles or contact lenses.
