Contact Lenses

Many people requiring vision correction can wear contact lenses without any problems or complications. New materials and modern technology have made lenses safer, more comfortable and more convenient than ever before. Ultra-thin, ultra-soft disposable lenses can be worn daily, or continuously for up to 30 days, even while you sleep. After a thorough eye examination, your suitability for contact lenses and the specific lens options that best meets your requirements will be determined. Some of these options include:

 

Daily Disposable

Great for both occasional and full time wearers, Daily Disposables are quickly becoming the best modality in contact lens wear! By using a brand new lens every day, your eye is much less likely to develop microbial infections (compared with traditional re-usable lenses). Whereas original Daily Disposables may have been dry or unsuitable for long days, modern materials such as Alcon's Water Gradient Technology in 'Dailies Total 1' enable comfortable & healthy lens wear all day, every day.

Available for:

Myopia, Hyperopia, Astigmatism, Presbyopia (Varifocal).

2 Weekly - Monthly

Great for full time wearers, reusable contact lenses have been around for many years and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials. These rely on greater care, as a single lens sometimes has to last up to 4 weeks. The wide range of reusable lenses means that they can be a better choice for people with stronger prescriptions (which may not be available in a daily disposable). Modern reusable lenses tend to be made of Silicon Hydrogel materials, which enable more oxygen to the front of your eye, thereby allowing a longer wear time and even overnight wear... imagine waking up with clear vision!

Available for:

Myopia, Hyperopia, Astigmatism, Presbyopia (Varifocal).

Toric (for Astigmatism)

While the more common short & long sighted prescriptions can be corrected with standard "spherical" contact lenses, Astigmatic Prescriptions require a "toric" lens. These  specialized lenses allow better accuracy at correcting the distortion that's seen at all distances with an astigmatic or "egg shaped" eye. Toric lenses are now available in more and more varieties, including Daily Disposable, Monthly Reusable, Traditional Hydrogel, or breathable Silicon Hydrogel materials.

Available for:

Myopia, Hyperopia, Astigmatism, Presbyopia (Varifocal).

Varifocal (for Presbyopia)

As our eyes age, the crystalline lens inside becomes harder and can no-longer change shape to vary its focus. This means that after the age of 45-50, we all find that we need extra help adjusting our focus from distance to near. These Varifocal contact lens options provide a stronger prescription for near, allowing you to read more comfortably without glasses, while maintaining great distance vision at the same time!
