The Basics

If you want some freedom from glasses, then why not consider contact lenses?

They’re easy to use and comfortable to wear. We offer a free initial assessment, in order to touch, feel and try the comfort of a contact lens. A current spectacle prescription is required for an assessment.

You may be offered a choice of soft or rigid gas permeable contact lenses. Each style of lens is fitted after a thorough assessment of your eyes suitability for contact lenses. Keith will measure the size and shape of your eyes, and will check the health of the front part of the eye that comes into contact with the lens. If this appears suitable, and your lifestyle can accommodate lenses, he will then apply a contact lens for you to feel the comfort and see real vision with a contact lens in place.

Soft lenses are as the name suggest soft to touch, and are made out of special water retaining plastics that allow your eye to breathe through them. Many new styles of soft lens also contain moisturisers that are released during the days wear, to maintain best comfort. Popular lenses are 1 day disposables such as 1 Day Acuvue Moist by Johnson & Johnson, Dailies Total 1 by Ciba vision and Biotrue 1 Day by Bausch & Lomb.

Gas permeable lenses are rigid buttons of breatheable plastic a little larger than your pupil. These lenses are tailor made to the individual shape and size of your eye, and can correct simple or complex prescriptions.

Soft and Gas Permeable lenses can correct, short and long sight, as well as astigmatism and multifocals for far and near.

Contact lens optician, Keith Williams is introducing the overnight vision correction ‘Eye Dream’ to Taylor’s opticians Frodsham.

EyeDream is a vision therapy that brings a modern approach to a technique known as orthokeratology or ortho k. EyeDream lenses are manufactured from a highly oxygen permeable material. When worn during sleep, the lenses apply a controlled shape to the ‘window’ at the front of the eye (the cornea), eliminating your short sightedness, so that you can be glasses and contact lens free during the day.

The vision correction is fully reversible, so if you decide to stop wearing your EyeDream lenses, your eyes will return to their original shape and you will see clearly with your glasses again. This makes EyeDream an excellent alternative to laser eye surgery.
EyeDream is available to patients with the following degrees of short sightedness:

A spherical spectacle prescription of -0.75D up to -5.00D
Astigmatism of up to -2.50D

As well as being an expert in all types of contact lens fitting, our contact lens optician, Keith Williams FBDO (Hons) CL has attended an extensive programme of training prior to treating patients with EyeDream. Find out more about EyeDream, also known as ortho-k on WWW.ORTHOKLENSES.COM
