Contact Lenses

Contact lenses at Wrights Opticians, Leyland

Contact Lenses

Over 25 years experience in all aspects of contact lenses.

Modern contact lenses are far more comfortable than ever before.

The materials available let much more oxygen through to the eyes surface, so the eye stays healthier and you can wear your lenses for longer. They also stay wetter for longer, with many lenses having surface treatments to ensure day long comfort on the eye.

Although soft lens materials are now by far the most popular type – because they are so comfortable – we can still fit existing or new wearers with RGP (rigid gas permeable) lenses, which have some advantages.

Here at Wrights Opticians contact lens trials are not rushed.

We will make sure you know everything you need to know about your lenses, from handling and cleaning, what to do in case of a mishap, lens do’s and don’ts and so on, before you leave the practice with your trial pair.

After assessing the fitting and your vision, and teaching you to insert, remove and clean them, the lenses are then yours to take away and try out for 2 to 3 weeks, with full back-up 24/7 (by means of a Mobile Help Line) before you decide if you like them enough to proceed.

As independent opticians we can supply and fit ANY type of contact lens – we are not limited to ‘own brands’ or just ‘simple lenses’

Specialist Contact Lens Optician

Our specialist contact lens optician Sarah Wright, will discuss at length which type of lens will suit you, your lifestyle and your visual needs, before commencing a trial. 

Sarah has experience in fitting children as young as 9 and seniors as old as 86. We can fit lenses to any prescription these days – although some may be more tricky than others – so if you’ve been turned away in the past, or stopped wearing lenses because they were uncomfy, maybe now its time to try again.
