Contact lenses for all!

Contact lensesContact lenses are now easier and more comfortable to wear than ever before. Nowadays you can wear either spectacles or contact lenses when you want. Perhaps you have a sporting or leisure activity that would be more enjoyable when wearing contact lenses, better peripheral vision, no lenses to mist or fog.

Sheppard Opticians supply many different types of contact lenses, which allow us to offer you a choice of lenses to suit you, your visual requirements and your lifestyle needs. Whether you want to wear your lenses every day or now and again, we can advise you on the best lenses for you.

As a specialist contact lens practice we are able to fit and supply almost anyone with contact lenses, regardless of prescription. We also supply lenses to correct astigmatism and progressive lenses that are similar to varifocal spectacle lenses. You no longer have to be under 40 to benefit from contact lenses.

What do I need to do to be able to wear them?

In order to be fitted with contact lenses, you will need to have an up to date prescription, so you may need an eye examination.

A contact lens fitting takes a little longer than a regular eye examination, so you need to reserve enough time.

When you make your appointment, please let reception know that you are interested in contact lenses and would like an appointment for a fitting in addition to the eye examination if required.

What should I expect?

Your optometrist will talk to you about your general health, and about your eyes; then you’ll be asked what your goal is with wearing contact lenses. To play sport? See better far away? Change the colour of your eyes, for that special occasion or party!

Your optometrist will know how to proceed with the examination based on your answers.  Next you’ll begin the actual eye examination. This consists of a series of tests to determine your eye health and your current vision. At the end of this examination, your optometrist can provide you with a prescription for glasses - but there’s more to come to get contact lenses!
