You can keep wearing your contact lenses. Do not touch your contact lenses with unwashed hands. Spectacles do not give you more protection against COVID-19 than contact lenses. Do not touch your face with unwashed hands. If you are sick, you should consider not wearing your contact lenses.
Our Contact Lens Fitting Service
Contact lenses give you freedom from spectacles and clear unobstructed vision
Rigid gas permeable and soft lenses are now made in many designs and materials, all have their own advantages and characteristics and licensed wearing schedules.
We will do our very best to find a contact lens which suits you and your lifestyle. We will support you and work with you to ensure that you maintain good comfortable wear, with clear vision and healthy eyes.
We have wide ranging experience in fitting contact lenses for many conditions such as scarred cornea, keratoconus, long and short-sightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia (difficulty reading at near). There are also new trends in myopia control; wearing certain types of contact lenses have been shown to slow the progression of short-sightedness in teenagers and young children. You can even change the colour of your eyes with contact lenses.
We will work with you to find the right lens for you. Many people are told that they are unable to wear contact lenses or drop out of wearing them for various reasons, we will do our very best to support you back into contact lens wear.
Brignall Opticians has a monthly payment scheme for frequent replacement soft lenses. This scheme covers the cost of all your regular appointments, emergency appointments and any re fitting with the added benefit of 20% off all spectacle frames and lenses.
