We Know Lenses…

Array of contact lens sizesSophie has extensive experience fitting both standard and complex lenses in both hospital (Moorfields Eye Hospital and Sussex Eye Hospital) and Harley Street practice. We thrive on seeing patients with high or ‘tricky’ prescriptions. We are also patient and compassionate, never pushy, and we want you to succeed!

As contact lens specialists, we genuinely believe there is a contact lens out there for any prescription. If you have been told that you are not suitable for contact lenses because you have astigmatism, your prescription is too high, you need reading glasses or your eyes are too dry, come and chat with us. There are very few people out there who are truly unsuitable for lenses, and usually that has something to do with motivation! We don’t like to be defeated and will always do our very best to find you lenses that you love.

Because we have close links with contact lens manufacturers and frequently attend international conferences on new lens innovations, we often have access to specialist lenses before anyone else. Sophie was the first practitioner in the UK to fit SynergEyes lenses, SoClear lenses, Jupiter sclerals, and one of the first to use Zenlens minisclerals lenses.

Contact lenses can be beneficial for all sorts of reasons:

  • Alternative to spectacles! It’s nice to have options, whether it’s lenses for full time wear or just for special occasions, sport or holidays.
  • Great for high prescriptions to avoid minification and magnification from spectacle lenses.
  • Helping to improve confidence for spectacle-wearing kids and teenagers (and great for activities and sports).
  • Special lenses can help slow the progression of short-sightedness in children.

There are numerous types of contact lenses. If your eyes are generally normal, read about your choice of standard lenses; if you’ve had difficulties in the past or you suffer from any specific eye conditions, you can read about our extensive range of complex lenses.

“From the start, I have found Sophie patient, flexible, understanding and extremely knowledgeable. She is extremely skilled in dealing with “funny” eyes like mine and has specialist equipment specifically for my condition. After a thorough examination, she recommended I use hybrid lenses and tutored me patiently on how to insert and remove them. They are wonderful – I love them!”
