When it comes to seeing clearly, glasses aren’t your only option. At Canterbury Eyecare, we’re passionate about helping you explore your options and will provide comprehensive advice based on your individual needs and preferences. If glasses aren’t for you, we can help you find the right kind of contact lenses.

Fortunately, modern technology means that most people can enjoy the benefits of contact lenses. Age is certainly not a barrier – we have patients as young as five years old and patients in their eighties successfully wearing contact lenses. Using the latest equipment and our expertise, we will assess your suitability for contact lenses and determine which style of lens will best fit your eyes and suit your lifestyle.

Choose the Right Type of Contact Lenses

When it comes to contact lenses there are many available options and our expert team will help you choose the lenses that are right for you.

If you’re interested in contact lenses, it is a good idea to consider when you’d like to use them – for sport or weekend use only, when you’re on holidays or most of the time, if you’d prefer to not wear glasses. Our optometrists will discuss your options further with you.

Contact lenses are available in a few modalities, some are soft and disposable daily after one wear or monthly, after using the same lens everyday and cleaning and storing it overnight. We also have rigid, or hard contact lens options, in particular Orthokeratology which is a type of contact lens worn overnight which reshapes the eyes tissue, so the next morning you can remove the lens and see clearly without the need to wear glasses or soft contact lenses.

So, whether you want a pair you can comfortably wear everyday, every night to reshape your eye, or something to wear sporadically for sport or special occasions, we are happy to discuss your options. Additionally, we’ll keep you updated on any new advancements in contact lenses, ensuring you’re always provided with the best possible products.
