Contact lenses

There has never been a better time to wear contact lenses. More people than ever can wear lenses, even many of those with astigmatism and who need varifocal spectacles.


At Paul Adler Optometrists, we stock a wide variety of different types of lenses, and regularly update our range as new lenses become available. We fit specialist lenses for myopia control, high prescriptions and complex medical needs, as well as bifocal and multi-focal lenses, orthokerotology lenses (which are worn at night and removed on waking but give great vision all day! as well as lenses that help reduce the chances of becoming more and more short sighted and even coloured lenses for cosmetic purposes.

Contact lens appointments

At your first appointment, we will assess your suitability for lenses if you've not worn them before. We will decide with you which lenses to choose, explain the process, teach you how to put your lenses in and take them out, and explain how to look after them. Whenever we try a patient in a lens they haven't worn before we do a follow-up check to make sure vision and eye health are both satisfactory, and in some cases we may need to try several different kinds of lenses. Contact lens patients can either pay for each appointment separately or pay a single-time fitting fee that covers all follow-up appointments until we're happy with the lenses. We also offer a direct debit facility for patients who want to order their lenses on a regular basis.


Because contact lenses sit on the surface of the eye, we have a responsibility to make sure that we check the health of your eyes on a regular basis. This means that we aren't able to provide contact lenses for patients if their contact lens prescription is out of date.
