Contact Lenses

New lens designs and materials make contact lenses more comfortable and safer than ever before.

They offer greater freedom and flexibility, for example, when playing sport, and allow a wider field of view than glasses.

Contact lenses are also ideal if you just want to wear them on special occasions. Whether you have an astigmatism, wear glasses or a child or adult playing sport, you can discover the freedom and comfort contact lenses give you. At Croft and Graves we will work with you to ensure you get comfort and great vision.

As contact lens experts, we fit all types of lenses, and are not tied to any manufacturer. This means you get fitted with the most appropriate lens for your eyes, and to suit your lifestyle, chosen for quality and value.

Our optometrists have on average over 20 years experience of fitting contact lenses and we aim to ensure that you always see the same person for your follow up appointments.

Who can wear contact lenses?

• Suitable for most prescriptions
• Children and adults – including those that play sport
• If you are long or short sighted
• Wear varifocals
• Have an astigmatism

Often people who have had problems and have stopped wearing contact lenses in the past, or have been told that their eyes are not suitable for contact lenses, can be fitted with newer contact lens designs and materials.
