Contact lenses cover a wide range of prescriptions, so if you thought your prescription was too complicated, or you need more than one vision type, there’s a good chance we can find a contact lens for you.

Your contact lens prescription will not be the same as your glasses prescription, so you’ll need to have a separate contact lens assessment to determine what kind of prescription you’d need. This will detail the base curve and diameter of the lens, what kind of material or brand to use, and how long the prescription will last.

If you’re worried that your prescription is too low or too high for contact lenses, come and have a chat with us in store. Our opticians will be able to advise which lenses are available to you.

Your prescription will detail

  • The base curve and diameter of the lens
  • What kind of material or brand to use
  • How long the prescription will last

We will also consider

  • Your lifestyle to determine the most suitable lens – daily disposable, monthly disposable or continuous wear lenses
  • How comfortable the lenses feel while you’re wearing them
  • How well the lenses fit your eyes

Toric contact lenses for astigmatism

Many glasses wearers have astigmatism – when the lens of the eye is slightly oval-shaped. It causes blurry vision, but toric lenses are shaped so they can be worn like standard lenses, allowing the wearer to focus easily.

How can I get toric contact lenses?

Like any contact lens, your optician will be able to prescribe the right lens for your vision and eye shape. If you have astigmatism and you’d like to try contact lenses, pop into store to discuss with your optician.
