An alternative to wearing glasses is to wear contact lenses. These lenses are tiny plastic discs, which are placed on the eye and serve the same purpose as glasses, by artificially improving the eyesight of the individual.
Contact lenses can help to rectify both long and short-sightedness and also offer practical solutions to those that enjoy playing contact sports, or for those who prefer not to wear spectacles for aesthetic reasons.
Your eyes will need to be examined and then, if appropriate, contact lenses will need to be fitted by our optometrists. They will also provide important advice and guidance on how to put lenses on your eyes and remove them and how to safely store them.
Brittains’ expert team of opticians can also offer guidance on the type of contact lens worn, for example different lenses vary in the duration of time for which they can safely be used. Single use contact lenses are only worn once and then must be disposed of after use. Fortnightly and monthly wear lenses are worn for the appropriate time-frame.
We have different payment options which can make contact lenses one of the most cost effective ways of getting great vision.
"I have, along with the rest of family, been using Brittain for many years. They have always been very helpful, friendly and professional.
They have alway been able to find the right glasses for me and the latest pair have really helped in reducing my eye strain at work, as have my new 2 weekly contact lenses.
The process of getting this sorted has been explained and followed through really quickly, so I can get on with my day.
I would not hesitate to recommend Brittains."
