Contact Lens Fitting

An accurate contact lens fitting is additional to a routine eye exam. Assessment of the shape and size of the eye is made to provide the best fitting contact lens for your eyes.

The appropriate contact lens is then prescribed according to the patient's requirements. A variety of contact lenses are available from the daily disposable contact lenses to the latest "breathable" monthly contact lenses that you can sleep in.

These contact lenses allow much more oxygen to flow through to the cornea and so can be worn for longer periods with increased comfort.

These "breathable" contact lenses are availablee in spherical form (for those patients with short-sightedness and long-sightedness), in toric form (for those patirnts with astigmatism) and in multifocal form (for those patients who also need to wear reading glasses).
