Contact Lens Fittings & Aftercare

At Mellis Eyecare we take the time to make sure you are safe to wear contact lenses, teaching you the necessary skills to insert and remove the lenses proficiently.

Daily Contact Lenses

If you’re looking for a simple and convenient way of correcting your eyesight, daily disposable contact lenses offer many benefits. These soft lenses are worn for a day and then thrown away – there is no need for solutions to clean and store them. Only wearing the lenses for a day reduces the exposure of the eyes to debris that can build up on the lens with time and avoids any sensitivity to contact lens solutions. In fact, these lenses are considered to be one of the safest and most trouble-free contact lens options provided they are worn only for single use and daily wear. Daily Disposable lenses are especially convenient and cost-effective if you want to wear contact lenses part time – in fact, they’re ideal for sport, going out and occasional wear, or for use when travelling. They can, however, be more expensive than other lens types of lenses especially if worn every day, although you will make a saving on solutions costs.

Myopia Control Lenses

A recent study showed that the prevalence of myopia has doubled in the last 50 years. This is due to kids doing more and more near work, due to phones, tablets and extra homework at school. Multifocal contact lenses can be used to protect shortsighted children from worsening eyesight.

Silicone Hydrogel

Silicone hydrogels are advanced contact lenses that allow more oxygen get to the cornea of the eye. This makes the lenses safer and the eyes whiter. Silicone hydrogel lenses enable up to five times more oxygen to reach the cornea than regular hydrogel lenses.

Monthly Contact Lenses

These soft contact lenses are worn on a daily wear basis and changed every two weeks or every month. You must remove them each night, clean and store them using the solutions recommended by your eyecare practitioner. They’re the most common type of soft lens fitted in the UK and have many advantages. Re-usable lenses offer all the benefits of soft lenses and are more cost-effective than daily disposables for those who wear their lenses every day or almost every day. They’re also available in a wide range of materials, fittings, powers and designs. To get the best from your lenses and wear them as comfortably and safely as possible, two-weekly and monthly lenses must be replaced strictly to the schedule recommended and should only be used as directed by your contact lens practitioner.

Multifocal Contact Lenses

Are you starting to struggle to focus to read. Then multifocal CLs could be the answer. They allow you to focus at distance and near again.

RGP Hard Lenses

RGPs may be a little uncomfortable at first but they are still the healthiest option for your eyes and give the best vision.

 

Mini-Scleral Contact Lenses

We also fit specialist mini-scleral contact lenses. These are great for fitting people who have irregular corneas.
