Contact lenses from your local specialists
As a specialist contact lens practice, we offer a wide range of contact lenses that can be used to correct almost all types of vision impairments including myopia, hyperopia (long-sight), astigmatism and presbyopia (replacing the need for reading glasses).
We even have Night Lenses that can help correct your vision whilst you sleep (Ortho K) and specialised contact lenses that allow the opportunity to reduce the progression of myopia (short-sightedness).
Who are contact lenses suitable for?
Modern contact lenses are very comfortable and healthy for the eyes. They can be suitable for almost all types of prescription and for all types of people, whatever their age! At Hammond Opticians our youngest client we have successfully fitted contact lenses to was 6 and our oldest 86!
What are the benefits of contact lenses?
Contact lenses can be used as a person’s primary form of visual correction with spectacles as a backup or as part-time wear for specific tasks. This might be for sports or exercise, for social wear or holidays or even just to go the hairdresser so you can see what’s being done to your hair!
Specialised lenses are also available for myopia management, eye diseases like keratoconus and bespoke lenses for complex eye prescriptions.
