Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are a great way of being free from glasses, be it in everyday life or for particular hobbies, and at Probert & Williams Eye Care, we offer a wide range of contact lenses for all ages and requirements.

Modern lenses are comfortable and provide a great level of vision, even if you have astigmatism, presbyopia (trouble seeing at near, commonly from your 40s) or a high prescription. If you have tried contact lenses before, and have been unsuccessful, our tailor-made options may be for you. We are also experienced in fitting lenses for more complex conditions, such as keratoconus, including working within hospital eye departments.

If you would like to try contact lenses, our optometrists will be more than happy to see you for a fitting appointment. At this appointment we discuss your requirements, measure your eyes, ensure that the lenses fit correctly and that your vision is good. One of our optical assistants will then teach you how to look after your lenses and how to put them in and take them out. We will make sure that you are entirely happy and confident with your lenses before you take them away to trial for a week or two. After this time one of our optometrists will see you again, to check that they suited your lifestyle, and that the fit and vision are still good. We then see you for check ups, usually on an annual basis, to ensure you are getting the best out of your lenses and that the health of the front of your eyes is still good.

Our Eyeplan scheme helps spread the cost of your contact lenses and professional fees.
