At Menai Eye Care, we consider contact lenses to be a perfect alternative to glasses even if they are only worn on a part-time basis, for sport or for social use. Contact lenses do not fog up, slip down your nose or hurt behind the ears like glasses can when they are worn in challenging conditions. Wearing contact lenses also means that choosing sunglasses is more straightforward – any shape and size can be chosen without having the restriction of prescription lenses. Our experienced team is up to date with the latest products and fitting techniques.
Daily Disposable contact lenses are one of the most popular types of lenses. They are hassle-free and also the healthiest way of wearing contact lenses, as a brand-new, sterile lens is worn every day. These lenses are very thin and comfortable. They are removed at the end of the day and disposed of. This means that cleaning, rinsing and lens solutions are no longer needed. They are also a fantastic choice when travelling as they are hygienic and compact to pack. Coloured daily disposable lenses are also available.
Fortnightly/Monthly disposable contact lenses are also very popular as they cover a wide range of prescriptions including high astigmatism. These lenses are available in cosmetic colours (to change your eye colour) as well as in new generation materials to promote better comfort when worn in air conditioning and when working on computers. The new materials also promote more oxygen transfer to the front of eye, maintaining good eye health and successful long-term contact lens wear.
Continuous wear lenses use new generation materials making them safe to sleep in overnight or for extended periods. No cleaning or storing of the lenses is required and lenses are disposed of each month.
Custom-made contact lenses are made to your individual specifications, especially for people with complex prescriptions. These lenses may be soft or rigid. They require daily cleaning and disinfecting and usually last at least 12 months.
Multifocal/Bifocal contact lenses are designed for people who wear reading glasses or need multifocal or bifocal spectacles. Their complex design allows you to see distance targets and read without needing glasses. These increasingly popular lenses are available in daily and monthly disposable forms.
Coloured / Cosmetic lenses are popular for those wanting to change their natural eye colour to other natural or dramatic tones. They are available in daily and fortnightly disposable options and may be worn for optical correction or purely cosmetic reasons.
With so many options available for contact lens wear, a consultation with one of our team will determine your individual requirements so that the best contact lens may be prescribed. Contact lenses must be fitted to suit your eyes in order to ensure clear, comfortable vision and to maintain good ocular health.
With so many lens options available at Menai Eye Care, spectacle lenses prescribed and fitted for you by one of our experienced team ensures you receive high quality, personalised lenses specifically tailored to your requirements.
Lenses may be prescribed for the following reasons:
- To restore clear sight if you are short-sighted, long-sighted or have astigmatism.
- To support the focusing and vergence (eye pointing) systems in the eye.
- As an aid during vision therapy
Your prescribed lens may be:
- Single vision – one power in the lens
- Bifocal – two powers with a line visible between the two
- Extended reading lens – for those doing desk work and computer use
- Progressive/ multifocals – if you require clear vision for reading, computer and distance simultaneously
Sun protection is important for everyone as UV light is damaging to the eye. Products that may be added to your lenses in order to provide UV protection include:
- UV coating and lens tinting – you can specify the colour of the tint and how dark the colour should be. This may range from a light tint to one common on sunglasses.
- Polarised lenses – a polarising filter is embedded within the lens to give maximum glare reduction, UV protection and visual comfort. The colour and density of the tint can also be specified.
- Transitipons or Photofusion technology gives a variable tint and maximum UV protection depending the amount of UV light present. The lenses will be clear indoors and have maximum tint similar to that of sunglasses.
Additional lens coatings that may be incorporated into your lenses to provide sharp, clear and comfortable vision include:
- Anti-reflective coatings, which give you a sharp image free from reflections from oncoming car headlights and other light sources. It is recommended for those who wear their glasses for driving or computer use. An anti-reflective coating also helps transitions lenses become clearer indoors.
- Mirror coating
High density plastic materials may be recommended for flatter, thinner and more cosmetically appealing lenses. These materials give excellent optical clarity. Such lenses are also used for prescription safety glasses.
The latest technology in progressive lenses uses wavefront technology to give ‘high definition’ vision by eliminating lens distortions and aberrations. Progressive lenses may also be customised individually to you – taking into account how your frame fits your face, to design a lens with maximum field of view for clear and comfortable vision.
