Many of our patients have more individual needs than a regular soft contact lens can cover. Eye conditions such as keratoconus, post LASIK corneas, high power prescriptions, very dry eyes, progressive myopia, irregular astigmatism to name but a few.
Our specialist contact lens clinic is structured to understand your individual needs, to assess the nature and shape of your eyes and your optical prescription (refraction). We will then discuss the options available to you, what you can expect from these and journey with you through the contact lens experience to clear and comfortable vision.
The starting point is an initial consultation with our Senior Optometrist and contact lens wearer Peter Turner. Having worked in a medical contact lens clinic at the Eye Hospital, he’s no stranger to helping patients who have complicated eyes or different visual needs. Initial consultations with Peter are available at both our Henleaze and Fishponds clinics and are £125.
Peter can then discuss the available options which include Hybrid lenses (gas permeable lens in a soft skirt), specialist gas permeable or soft lenses and mini-scleral lenses.
If you have a specific question or would like to book an appointment please telephone 0117 965 4434 or 0117 962 2474. We look forward to seeing you soon!
As a guide, specialist lenses usually range from £96 to £325 each, and are available on a monthly DD care plan. We'd be happy to provide an individual quotation once we understand your individual needs.
