A typical contact lens fitting with Taylor-West & Co opticians in Battersea will contain the following:
- Initial consultation:
Our optometrists will complete a highly accurate eye assessment which includes careful measurements and scans of your corneas. We will also take the time to talk about your lifestyle, current visual needs, and lifestyle – such as if you look at screens for a majority of the day. This session will also include the trying of some lenses and, once we’ve found a perfect fit, we will order some of them for you.
Some of our lenses need to be custom-made in the UK or the US, so they may arrive in as little as a few days or as much as three weeks.
- Collection appointment:
Once your lenses arrive at our opticians in Battersea, you’ll have the chance to try them out again and see if they work as planned – if not, we’ll re-order your contact lenses with the appropriate modifications.
If your contact lenses are perfect for you, we’ll teach you how to put them in your eye, remove them, and look after them so they remain sanitary. Additionally, you’ll be able to take them home to try out in the real world to see if they really are satisfactory.
- Follow-up / Second collection appointment:
From here, you’ll have had the chance to try out your new contact lenses. You’ll need to come back to our opticians in Battersea so that we can monitor your progress with them and see how you’ve been getting on. If there have been no issues, you’ll be able to keep them and return in 2 months for another check-in. If there are problems, we can modify them for you or try a different kind of lens that is more suited to your eyes.
- Second follow-up / Third collection appointment / Regular check-ups:
If you require it, your second follow-up and third collection appointments will follow the same route as before until we find the perfect contact lenses for you. Once the fitting is completed and you’ve received your perfect lenses, you’ll need to come back to our opticians in Battersea for a checkup every six months so we can see how you’re getting on.
The entire fitting process can be completed in as little as two visits, however, it can take months before we find the right lenses together. Once we’ve found them, though, and following your monthly check-ups, you should be able to wear your new contact lenses comfortably.

Beautiful Hand-Crafted Spectacles
We think our range of designer frames is the best you can possibly get – and we believe you’ll think the same.

Meet the Battersea Team
Based in Battersea
After I qualified as an optometrist in Spain in 1996 and worked in several independent practices, I decided to move to UK in 2001 in order to study a master’s degree in Optometry. It was during this period when I developed a keen interest in contact lenses, specialising in contact lense fitting and dry eye. I qualified to practice in UK in 2002 and since then I have been working as an optometrist at independent practices.
Getting to Battersea
We are a 10 minute walk from Clapham Junction or 20 minutes walk from Clapham South station. We are well served by local buses, and there is plenty of pay-by-phone parking in the surrounding residential streets.
