Contact lenses

Contact Lenses

At Onlookers we offer many types of contact lens options. You may want to try contact lenses for the first time, or you may be a long term lens wearer.  Whether you want to wear them all day every day, or just for sports and social occasions, there is likely to be a contact lens option to suit you. Contact lenses are available in a huge range of prescriptions, including multifocal options for distance and reading.

Daily Disposable lenses

Daily Disposables, as the name suggests, are designed to be worn for the day (or evening) and then discarded. They are convenient and easy to use for occasional wear or every day. The prescription range can be more limited than some of the other options.

Reusable lenses

Soft lenses

Soft contact lenses usually need to be replaced fortnightly or monthly. When they are removed they need to be cleaned and stored in a disinfecting solution, which makes them a little less convenient to use than daily disposables.

Gas Permeable lenses

Gas Permeable lenses are a rigid lens, more often used for more complex prescriptions.  A pair of lenses normally lasts for a year and like soft lenses must be cleaned and disinfected between each wear.

Our Service

We offer a contact lens trial service so you can try different lens types and find out which ones suit you best. There is a small fee which includes the trial lenses, teaching you how to use and care for the lenses and any contact lens appointments you may need. Please contact us if you have any questions or need more information.
