The Freedom of Contact Lenses

+100%-

Holding a lensContact lenses are more comfortable than ever to wear and offer freedom from glasses.
We offer daily and monthly disposable lenses as well as fashion coloured and varifocal contact lenses.

The technology of contact lenses has advanced in recent years so that they are more suitable for a wider range of prescriptions. We provide a fully comprehensive contact lens fitting service coupled with expert advice. This ensures you receive the most comfortable lenses providing optimum vision. At Ridings Opticians we ensure we remain at the forefront of advances in contact lens technology as improved designs and materials are constantly introduced to the existing product ranges.

During the contact lens consultation, various measurements relating to the curvature and prescription of the eye are taken. The health of the front surface of the eye is also checked thoroughly. A trial pair of lenses is inserted during the appointment if appropriate to establish an accurate fit and prescription. This also enables you to get a ‘feel’ for the lenses.

DAILY DISPOSABLES

With no solutions, no lens cases and no hassle required, it’s easy to see why daily disposables are one of the most popular choices amongst contact lens wearers. By simply throwing away your lenses at the end of the day and starting with a fresh pair the next, it really couldn’t be easier.

Daily disposables are sometimes seen as the healthiest contact lenses for your eyes and are a great choice for those who are prone to allergies as they avoid the day-to-day build up of dust, pollen and other irritants.

Daily disposables are especially convenient and economical for individuals who only want to wear their lenses part time and are ideal for sport, going out and travelling.

Available in a wide range of prescriptions from standard myopia and torics for astigmatism through to varifocal and coloured dailies, daily disposables are well suited to most users. However, in the event that your eyes are not suited to daily disposables, two week and monthly disposables are an alternative option.

Daily Toric

Daily toric contact lenses have been designed for those with astigmatism as they have a different focusing power horizontally than vertically and as a result can correct the blurry vision caused by this.

Toric lenses differ from other contacts because of their shape and the way they fit the eye. Because astigmatism changes the way light refracts, the cylindrical shape of the toric lens compensates for this problem, enabling wearers to see clearly once again.

Monthly Disposables

The advanced materials that are found in monthly disposable contact lenses allow significantly more oxygen into the eye, making them more comfortable to wear for longer periods of time.

These soft contact lenses are worn daily for up to one month and are removed each night so they can be cleaned and stored in the recommended solution. Re-usable lenses are more cost effective than daily disposables for those who wear their lenses every, or almost every day.

Our monthly lenses are available in a range of materials from regular to continuous wear. They are suitable for long and short sighted, toric, verifocal and coloured lenses and are also suitable for astigmatisms.

Monthly Toric

Individuals with astigmatism can benefit from wearing monthly toric lenses as they have a different focusing power horizontally than vertically and as a result can correct the blurry vision caused by this.

Due to their shape and the way they fit the eye, monthly toric lenses enable wearers to see clearly once again. These soft contacts are worn daily for up to one month and are removed each night so they can be cleaned and stored in the recommended solution. Re-usable lenses are more cost effective than daily disposables if you wear your lenses every, or almost every day.

Twice monthly contact lenses can be worn daily for up to two weeks and are removed every night so they can be cleaned and stored in the recommended solution.

One of the biggest advantages of bi-monthly lenses is that they are easy to order and store as you only need new lenses every other week. They are also much more cost effective than daily disposables if you wear your lenses frequently as you won’t need to open a new set every day.

To find out if twice monthly lenses are suitable for you, request a lens fitting or sight test today. Alternatively, contact us if you have any questions or require more information

freshlook colorblendsContact lenses can be used for cosmetic purposes as well as for correcting eyesight. Those who have a desire to change the colour or appearance of their eyes can benefit from coloured lenses.

Contact lens assessment

If you are interested in wearing contact lenses we can carry out a full assessment to decide which lenses would best suit your eyes and lifestyle. You need to have had a recent sight test (in the last year) so we know your current spectacle prescription and eye health.

Technology is always advancing and the contact lenses available today are more comfortable than ever. We supply all major brands as well as those exclusively available from independent opticians.

During the assessment you will try out some lenses, becoming familiar with putting them in and out, while we ensure they fit your eyes correctly. Provided everything goes well you will be given a supply of trial lenses and we will arrange some follow-up appointments to watch your progress over the next few of weeks.

Aftercare

Once the optometrist is happy with the suitability of the contact lenses you will need to be seen for regular contact lens aftercare visits.  Coming back for these checks is very important as improper use of contact lenses can cause lasting damage to your eyes.

Please contact us at Ridings Opticians if you have any questions or would like to request an appointment.
