Contact lenses

Why choose contact lenses

Are contact lenses better than glasses?

Contact lenses offer more flexibility than glasses – perfect for those with active lifestyles.

Here are just some of the benefits

  • See clearly even in low light
  • Provide better peripheral vision
  • No reflections or distortions
  • They don’t steam up in warmer spaces
  • They don’t fall off when playing sport

Can I wear contact lenses?

As with most new things it can take a little while to get used to wearing contact lenses. Your Health Partners optometrist will recommend the best type of contact lens for you based on your eye test results, lifestyle and budget.

What types of contact lenses are there?

There are many types of contact lenses to choose from, from daily disposable to extended wear.

Daily disposableUsed as needed and disposed after every use - the healthiest option for your eyes
Frequent replacementReplaced every fortnight or every month and require cleaning after every use
Extended wear lensesCan be worn overnight, some up to 29 consecutive nights
Conventional lensesCustom made and replaced every year so cleaning and hygiene is important
