Our specialist optometrists can fit you with contact lenses to wear every day or just for occasional use such as sports or special occasions, meaning you can always have the most comfortable vision possible.
Contact Lenses at Eye Academy
Our specialists are constantly researching the most up to date fitting techniques and lens designs; meaning that they can tailor each and every appointment to specific patient requirements.
As with our eye examinations, we focus heavily on the latest technology in contact lens fitting equipment. This technology allows us to successfully fit those more complex cases where the corneas are more irregular such as those of corneal transplant or laser surgery patients, kerataconics and those with very high astigmatism.

Types of Contact Lenses
As an independent opticians, we offer many different types and brands of contact lenses and our specialist optometrists will fit the right one based on your lifestyle and prescription. Because of this many people who have previously tried lenses elsewhere but have had problems, have been successfully refitted by us.

Contact Lens Fittings
All our fittings and check-ups are done by Optometrists, who have a higher qualification than the Contact Lens Opticians commonly employed by larger chains. Some of our Optometrists work within Hospital Eye Departments such as Moorfields, and as such are very experienced in all aspects of fitting, including complex cases.
Contact Lenses & Dry Eye
Dry Eye is the main reason people decide not to try contact lenses or stop using them altogether. New clinical research and technology in dry eye management mean this condition is rarely an issue. If you do feel you are experiencing dry eyes we do have a Specialist Dry Eye Clinic, where we can recommend treatments.
Ortho-k Overnight Contact lenses
Ortho-K is a vision correction therapy that provides clear, comfortable vision without the need to wear contact lenses or glasses during the day. These specially-designed contact lenses reverse the power of the cornea, at the front of the eye during overnight wear. Once the full effect has taken place, the eye is effectively ‘normal’ and can see clearly during the day.
