Contact Lenses by Hing Opticians
The most popular contact lenses are daily disposable or monthly replacement soft contact lenses; dependent on your prescription and wearing requirements. As a independent optician, we are not linked with any manufacturers, which allows us the ability to find and choose the best solution for your visual requirements.
Daily Disposable Contact Lenses
Ideal for occasional wear or full time wear without the need to clean them. Brands include Dailies Total 1, Focus Dailies Aquacomfort+, Johnson & Johnson 1 Day Oasys & 1 Day Acuvue Moist, plus many others. Available in long and short sighted prescriptions, astigmatic and multifocal.
Monthly & Two Weekly Disposable Contact Lenses
Ideal for full time wear, both monthly and two weekly lenses can correct most visual errors, including astigmatism and multifocal lenses. Modern materials mean that these lenses can be worn for longer with greater comfort. Brands include Air Optix Aqua, Biofinity, Acuvue Oasys and Purevision 2 and many others. These lenses will require cleaning on a daily basis with a recommended cleaning solution.
Annual Contact Lenses
Gas permeable lenses are also available, these lenses require extra time to ensure correct fitting and for new wearers take some time to get used to. These lenses last longer than the soft contact lenses and therefore are usually replaced on an annual basis, they require cleaning on a daily basis. These lenses are usually fitted to people with unusual prescriptions or ocular conditions like keratoconus.
