Contact Lenses

Contact lenses give you the freedom of a wide field of view as there are no limitations from the spectacle rims. Whether you want contact lenses for just sports and social use, or full time wear instead of spectacles, we can suggest an appropriate lens type for you.

As SPX Opticians is an independent, we obtain the latest advances in technology which mean that you will receive lenses that are more comfortable and affordable than ever before with a vast range of prescriptions available. We are able to advise the patient on which lens types are most suited to their lifestyle and requirements. As we are not tied to one particular company we can offer impartial professional advice.

No risk trial

We will assess your suitability for lenses at your first appointment and then explain the options open to you, together with the costs involved. If there is a problem this will be discussed in full and your options explained. It may mean you need a more specialised lens. Your first experience of contact lens wear will demonstrate how comfortable they can be. Before committing yourself to going ahead, we will, where possible, allow you to take some lenses home to try.

Making the right decision

We will advise you on the best lens options to meet your needs and explain these thoroughly. These options include: daily disposable lenses; soft lenses; gas permeable lenses; UV filter lenses; tinted lenses to change your appearance; bifocal and progressive lenses. Many lens options are available on a frequent replacement scheme.
