Why choose contacts?

Contact lenses offer a discreet and versatile solution for vision correction. They are ideal for those who lead active lifestyles, as they offer unobstructed vision without the worry of slipping or fogging, making them perfect for sports and outdoor activities. Contact lenses come in various types to suit individual needs, from daily disposables for convenience to extended-wear lenses for long-term use. With advancements in technology, modern contact lenses are comfortable and breathable, allowing for all-day wear without irritation.

In addition to their practicality, contact lenses can enhance your appearance by eliminating the need for frames, providing a more natural look. This can boost confidence and open up a broader range of style choices. At Hill Eyecare, we offer personalised consultations to help you choose the best type of contact lenses for your lifestyle, ensuring optimal comfort and vision.

So much choice

There is a huge selection of contact lenses available, and the right choice for you depends on how often you want to wear them, what you would like to wear them for, what your prescription is and what your budget is.

In addition to daily and monthly lenses, there are multifocal lenses available that can give you both far and near vision, UV blocking lenses to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, and even contact lenses that can filter high energy light to give you more comfortable vision in bright light both outdoors and in front of your computer or phone screen.

Please note that as contact lens care is not covered by the NHS, all contact lens wearers at Hill Eyecare must join a direct debit scheme to cover cost of required checks. Our direct debits start from £5 a month (care only). This charge will cover scheduled aftercare appointments and any emergency care if needed. Any patient without an active care plan will be charged £30 per visit.

Contact lenses can be purchased through the direct debit scheme or on a pay-as-you-go basis. If you pay for lenses via direct debit, the first 3 months must be paid up front upon completion of contact lens trial.
