Contact Lenses & Prescriptions
CONTACT LENSES CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE!
Contact lenses offer flexibility and freedom for your active lifestyle and work, they can also be a great alternative to spectacles and are perfect for weekend wear or everyday convenience.
Now almost everyone can wear contact lenses including people with complex and specialty optical needs such as those of us who have astigmatism or need progressive lenses. Just ask Narelle about what lens technologies are now available for your vision needs and eye shape during your eye examination.
OUR MOST POPULAR LENS TYPES FOR COMFORT & CONVENIENCE
Daily disposables – Convenient and more bio compatible lenses, now available for multifocal lens wearers and astigmatism!
Ortho-Keratology – a well researched clinical technique to slow the development of Myopia. Custom designed rigid contact lenses are fitted to reshape the cornea during sleep and are removed first thing in the morning. The added bonus is that glasses and corrective lenses are not worn through the day. The lenses are reapplied every night.
Multifocal contact lenses - for people who don’t want to wear reading glasses full time or struggle to find that “sweet spot” in their multifocal glasses to view their computer screen
New Moisture enhancing lenses–For combating dryness in air conditioning and screen work.
Myopia control lenses – This is a highly recommended therapy for young people to slow accelerating myopia (short sightedness). Today we can use both soft and rigid contact lenses for this therapy. You can read more about Myopia Control and Ortho-Keratology in our Myopia Control Page.
Signs you need Multifocal Contact Lenses!
To confirm that your contact lens design is still the best and healthiest choice for your ocular surface-cells and your lifestyle – and that you are caring for your contact lenses correctly, book in for a contact lens examination annually!
Your contact lens material may not be compatible with all lens disinfecting solutions. Ask our advice before changing your disinfecting solution. The wrong soaking solution can seriously affect the performance and comfort of your lens on your eye.
