Both partners have an interest in contact lenses. We are an independent practice which gives us the ability to prescribe lenses from any manufacturer, worldwide. Mark worked with Dr Lyndon Jones in London for two years, during which time their practice was awarded “Contact Lens Practice of the Year” twice and overall “Practice of the Year” once. In this period, Mark co-authored research which has been published in the Journal of the British Contact Lens Association and Optometry and Vision Science – Journal of the American Academy of Optometry. We often participate in large clinical studies of new contact lens products. You may want to wear contact lenses occasionally, full-time or for particular situations. You may have astigmatism, wear bifocals or varifocals, want coloured lenses or have previously been told you couldn’t wear contact lenses. Whatever the scenario, there is likely to be a contact lens for you.
We provide a contact lens assessment which allows you to experience contact lenses without being involved in any long-term commitment. Within this assessment, we will try a range of lenses until we find the best one for your eyes. You can wear the lenses, which are made to your prescription, for up to one month and so have the opportunity to feel confident in your ability to wear lenses before making any decisions. T
My opinion- LASIK is probably the best option if you absolutely have to undergo this type of operation. A good source of balanced information is the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. My gut feeling is that a clinic which honestly discusses the risks as well as the benefits is the one to consider; there are some who present refractive surgery as some form of cosmetic procedure, without an honest appraisal of the risks.
