Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are the perfect partner for your specs. They are suitable for most people and can be worn on an every day or less frequent basis - ideal for sports, evenings out and special occasions.

We supply a wide range of contact lenses from major brands such as Acuvue, Alcon, Bausch & Lomb and Cooper Vision.

Our qualified Contact Lens Optician, Julie Nelson, has over 30 years' experience and is adept at coaching new contact lens wearers of all ages, from the under-8s to over 80s!


We all know that we should protect our skin from the sun's harmful rays, but it is just as important to protect our eyes from UV. We stock a range of sunglasses to suit every activity, style and budget.

Amongst our bestselling brands are the increasingly-popular Maui Jim polarised sunglasses. We also stock a selection of popular designer styles from brands such as Carrera, Armani, Dunhill and Moschino.

We encourage parents to protect their children's young eyes, too. So we have funky children's sunglasses on sale from just £20.


Remember: everyone should get their eyes checked at least once every two years. Free NHS eye tests are available for many people, including all children and the over 60s. So what are you waiting for? Click to find out more or contact us to make an appointment. 

We've also got lots of eyecare information and advice relating to various eye conditions, including common complaints such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma, cataracts, dry eye and blepharitis.
