Contact lenses

Want to think about contact lenses?


Great, you have come to the right place: As an independent Optometrist we select lenses from the widest range of quality manufacturers; this means we  offer you the best products available to suit your eyes.

Our range of equipment allows you to have the best possible care with time to ask questions and know we want you to have the very best in vision possible without compromising your ocular health.


Our contact lens care is paid separately from our contact lenses, so giving you the additional assurance that you are receiving the best of care which is not tied to the product you use. In fact we supply your lenses at cost price and are happy for you to purchase your lenses elsewhere.


We provide multifocal, toric and bespoke gas permeable lenses amongst other products. We have a history of providing care to children, mature adults and the house bound.  Our bespoke and extensive service may be just what you are looking for. Ask for more details within our practice.
