Enjoy the Freedom of Contact Lenses

Contact lenses can provide a healthy, comfortable and convenient vision correction option. They are safe, comfortable, simple and easy to use and are a good choice for almost everyone. They offer you the freedom to see clearly and enjoy life the way you want, free from glasses.

Almost anyone can wear contact lenses. If you’re new to contact lenses and want to know more about them (or have already decided to try them!), your first step is to contact us to make an appointment to be tested and fitted for contact lenses. Once we have examined your eyes, we can help you to choose the right contact lenses and to ensure that they are fitted correctly for your eyes. Our contact lens checks cost just 25 and if you decide to take the plunge, you can benefit from a free two weeks contact lens trial to ensure that they are the best choice for you. Once you are comfortable with contact lenses, and want to use them on a regular basis, we can ensure that your lenses are ordered ready for you, when you need them. To this end we have a great contact lens scheme for long-term contact lens users who can then benefit from added perks from Lichfield Street Opticians including a staggering 35% off complete spectacles!

Why Choose Contact Lenses Over Glasses?

People choose contact lenses over spectacles for many reasons.

You may feel that you want to try contact lenses because you want a more convenient solution to seeing clearly. Maybe you don't always want to wear your glasses because they get in the way in some everyday situations. Contact lenses provide a simple way to change both the way you look at the world and the way the world looks to at you. And they offer you a lot of freedom...

  • Freedom to have the look you want: Say it with your eyes!
  • Freedom to see better: Crisp, clear all round vision
  • Freedom of movement: Contact lenses don't fall off or get knocked during sports
  • Freedom to wear what you want: Wear fashion sunglasses and change your look easily
  • Freedom to get on with life: Contact lenses are simple to use and can make your life easier.
    • ...All without glasses!

There are a range of contact lenses types made with different materials designed to correct many different eye conditions and to suit all lifestyles.  Which ones are best for you may depend on the prescription and any common vision problems you may be experiencing (Myopia, Hyperopia, Presbyopia or Astigmatism).

Soft Lenses are made from gel-like plastics which tend to have a high water content. Hydrogel lenses feel soft, are very comfortable to wear for most of the day and are easy to get used to.  Silicone Hydrogel is a newer material that has become the new Biggest Thing in the contact lens world. It offers a much greater oxygen transmission to the eye, giving much more comfort and thus longer hours of wear.  Your eyes look healthier and whiter; and the lens allows for better vision and a better fit on your eye. Silicone Hydrogel lenses are more durable, meaning you can sleep in them for up to 29 nights - a level of freedom from glasses that is only rivalled by laser surgery!

RDG (rigid gas permeable) lenses are what we would call ‘hard lenses’. These are highly durable - it is recommended they are changed every year - and are made to order. They offer the clearest and most crisp vision and tend to be easier to handle than softer lenses. The downside to these however is that they can be harder to become accustomed to before they sit comfortably on the eye, due to the fact they are made from firmer plastics. They are brilliant for people with high degrees of astigmatism whose prescription is not suitable for softer lenses.
