HIGH QUALITY CONTACT LENSES
If there are times that glasses aren’t suitable for your lifestyle or eye condition , we have a wide range of contact lenses designed to suit all needs. The team at Graham Hill Eyecare can help you firstly determine whether contact lenses are right for you, and then which types of lenses will suit you best.
Our range of contact lenses includes:
Daily disposable contact lenses
Worn once and then disposed of, daily contact lenses offer maximum comfort, convenience and cleanliness. These can be worn occasionally or can be the lens of choice for every day wear.
Fortnightly and monthly disposable contact lenses
Longer lasting and more cost-effective if you want to wear contact lenses most days, fortnightly and monthly lenses are available in several different designs. These need to be cleaned between each use.
Extended-wear contact lenses
Extended-wear lenses are made from a special silicon hydrogel material that allows them to be worn overnight. Currently available in one, two and four-week options, the lenses must initially be assessed at the one-day, one-week and one-month marks to determine whether or not they are suitable for you.
Multifocal contact lenses
Available in a variety of different disposable lens designs, multifocal contact lenses allow you to see far and near distances at the same time, without needing to change lenses.
Monovision contact lenses
An alternative to multifocal contact lenses, monovision lenses are designed to give you one eye focused on reading and the other on distance.
Rigid (RGP) contact lenses
Rigid contact lenses (and mini scleral contact lenses) are used for particular conditions that cannot be adequately corrected with regular soft contact lenses. Examples of where rigid contact lenses would be used include very high levels of short-sightedness, long sightedness or astigmatism. Certain types of vision distortion such as keratoconus can be diagnosed with our corneal topographer (see our advanced technology). This equipment then allows us to accurately prescribe the appropriate rigid contact lens for vision correction. Our optometrists are experienced and skilled in prescribing the appropriate use of these lenses.
Orthokeratology is the treatment of short-sightedness using rigid gas permeable (RGP) or hard contact lenses. This involves wearing a tailored rigid contact lens during sleep, which reshapes the cornea so that you won’t need any glasses or contact lenses during the day. Ortho-keratology is also recognised as a leading treatment for progressive myopia (see myopia control and ortho-K)
