Daily Disposable Lenses from only 60p a day

Whether you want to wear lenses every day or just occasionally daily disposable lenses provide the ultimate in lens wearing convenience. As a fresh pair of lenses are worn on each occasion there is no need for cleaning and disinfection which also make them ideal for those people who are sensitive to either lens cleaning fluids or allergens. Daily disposable lenses are now available to correct astigmatism too.

They are available in a wide range of prescriptions including toric lenses to correct astigmatism.

Standard Monthly Disposable Lenses

From as little as £6 per month, these lenses provide the most cost-effective contact lens wearing option. They are available in a wide range of prescriptions including toric lenses for astigmatism and even progressive powers to correct distance and reading for those people who currently wear varifocals.

Toric Contact Lenses

For those who want to experience the comfort and convenience of soft contact lenses astigmatism is no longer a barrier to lens wear. Advances in lens manufacturing technology now make toric lenses available in a wide range all types of lens materials.

Book Your FREE* Eye Test

Just like a visit to the dentist an eye examination should be part of your regular health care. An eye examination is more than just a sight test. It can identify other health issues. Your optometrist will check for early signs of eye disease such as glaucoma and cataracts. They can also check for a number of general health conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Early diagnosis of an eye or health condition may prevent or delay more serious damage.

Your optometrist will advise you how often you should have your eyes tested. This will depend on your individual needs but for most people it is advised to have an eye examination every two years. We will make sure you always receive the very best clinical care, treatment and advice.

* In Scotland the NHS pay for your eye test. In England and Wales an eye test is FREE with any purchase of glasses, contact lenses or sunglasses. Without purchase the cost of an eye test in England and Wales is £20.
