Contact lenses may be worn as an alternative or in addition to spectacles. They can be custom made for unusually shaped eyes, but the most common lens type used is the disposables. The most common disposal frequencies are daily, fortnightly and monthly.
We prefer and recommend lens materials that allow the cornea (transparent layer on the front of the eye we see through) to breathe as if without a lens. Contact lenses are also suitable for part-time wear so one can use them for more physical activities like sport, or social occasions where glasses don’t quite suit.
We supply contact lenses and can teach you to use them. Most contact lens teaches and fittings are not billable through Medicare and we are happy to quote you up front the costs of these visits.
