Contact Lenses

There are so many different types of contact lenses now available on the market. It is not so much as which is the best available as more that which is best suited to your eyes and how you want to wear them.

We supply a range of Contact Lenses including Acuvue lenses

The Three Main Types Of Contact Lenses:

Daily Disposable Soft Lenses

There is a wide variety of disposable lenses available, all of which you wear once and then throw away.  They are suitable for the majority of prescriptions, including those with astigmatism.  The great advantage with daily disposable lenses is that you don’t need to bother with a cleaning and disinfecting regime.

Frequent Replacement Lenses

These are a popular and economical option. You wear your lenses during the day then take them out at night to clean and disinfect them. The latest silicone hydrogel materials allow for longer wearing times which saves you money. They can be replaced every two weeks or every month depending on your requirements.

Gas Permeable (Rigid Lenses)

These are made from a rigid plastic material that allows oxygen to pass through to keep your eyes healthy. They are suitable for all prescriptions and because they are rigid they last much longer than soft lenses. Gas permeable lenses are replaced every 12 months-but can often last longer. There are also new semi scleral designs of gas permeable that are larger and hence more stable on the eye to provide better stability and comfort and can be made to most prescriptions.

Introducing ORTHOKERATOLOGY

(OVERNIGHT VISION CORRECTION)

We are now offering this alternative form of vision correction – where we fit comfortable rigid gas permeable lenses to be worn overnight that are accurately formed to reshape the cornea by flattening it slightly to correct short sightedness.

Then when removed in the morning you can see without needing to wear lenses during the day!

Due to the clever optic design it is also recognised as the best method for ‘myopia control’ where it can reduce the advancement of myopia for younger patients who would seem more at risk of increases in power from the age of 8 upwards.

Contact Lens Pricing

Chalmers Opticians aim to make your contact lens pricing clear and easy to understand-whilst also giving you the option of how it is better to purchase for you.

We have our own professional care scheme, called Eyeplan where you pay a monthly direct debit to cover all your contact lens costs(including solutions if necessary) and this provides many separate benefits as well (see our Eyeplan section).

But you can just pay for the professional fees with this and purchase lenses separately when required-more suitable for occasional wearers and daily disposable.

If you are entitled to NHS help-then the voucher you are entitled to after an NHS eye examination can be put towards contact lenses or glasses.

Monthly payments help to spread the cost without the unexpected expense of having to replace damaged or lost lenses.

Payments can be made by monthly direct debit and all the benefits of eyeplan are included too.

Being an independent practice we are able to supply many different makes of lenses and if you have previously been unsuccessful with lens wear, even with monthly disposables, a different brand of lens may prove to be suitable for you, and we are happy for you to try various alternatives.
