Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are improving and evolving all the time. They can be used every day or for part-time wear in combination with your spectacles. Modern contact lenses allow us to correct most prescriptions, even if you wear bifocal or varifocal spectacle lenses or have astigmatism.

Contact Lenses for Everyone

Whether you’re a keen sportsperson or just like getting out there, contact lenses can help give you the freedom of movement to lead an active lifestyle. Contact lenses offer a natural look and can help improve how you feel about yourself and how people see you. Wearing contact lenses means not having to worry about forgetting your glasses or wiping off foggy spectacle lenses.

As an independent practice, we offer all the leading brands of contact lenses and with our deep understanding of your eyes, lifestyle needs and vision correction, we can match the best lens to address your individual needs. We have a contact lens for almost everyone – even if you have a more complicated prescription. This includes correcting astigmatism or your reading vision if you currently wear bifocal or varifocal spectacle lenses.

Every day or just occasionally. Let us show you how easy contact lens wear can be.

Today, modern contact lenses are comfortable and easy and worn by millions of people around the world. Many choose daily disposable lenses and enjoy the health and convenience benefits of a fresh new lens every day and are also great for occasional use. Whether socializing with friends, a game of tennis twice a week or a special celebration, contact lenses offer great all-round vision and freedom from spectacles.

Worried about putting them in? We also have specially trained staff to help you learn how to easily apply and remove your lenses as well as how best to look after them.

I was so impressed with your practice. I had an ocular emergency, and not only did you give me the correct advice, but you phoned a week later to see how I was getting on.

Bill Price

We've been with Horrocks and Boyd as a family for 24 years and thoroughly recommend them. Their service and attention to detail is second to none. We all travel some distance now to remain with them but wouldn't have it any other way.
