At Martin Reynolds Opticians we specialise in contact lens fitting. Unlike spectacles, contact lenses can pose ocular health risks due to the proximity to the eye. To this extent our optometrists will gather as much information about your lifestyle and expectations of contact lens wear so that they can provide you with viable, healthy options of contact lens wear.
As an independant practice we are not constrained by who we can use to manufacture and supply our contact lenses. This allows us to provide you with the perfect solution for your visual needs.
At Martin Reynolds Opticians the choice is vast:
Daily disposable for astigmatism
Daily disposable for presbyopes - reducing the need for reading spectacles
Weekly extended wear
Two weekly disposable
Two weekly disposable for astigmatism
Monthly disposable for astigmatism
Monthly disposable for presbyopes
Monthly extended wear
Monthly extended wear for astigmatism
Annual soft lenses for complex prescriptions
Within each category there may be several options. The optometrists role is to advise you, in a clear jargon-free manner, and make recommendations but ultimately allow you to make an informed choice about the type of lens most suited to you.
Once happy with the choice of lens our optometrists will assess the performance of the contact lens on the eye, and make any necessary adjustments to improve comfort and vision.
Following this you will be taught by the optometrist the correct procedure for insertion and removal of a contact lens. Only once the optometrist is happy with your technique will you then be allowed to try the lenses at home. Normally the trial period is one week, however the optometrist will advise you accordingly.
If you are happy with your contact lens choice you can join Optiplan. For £12 per month you can enjoy contact lenses at extremely competitive prices with the added reassurance of all checkup and examinations included in the price.
Alternatively have the convenience of one simple monthly payment to include your check ups and contact lenses.
