Contact Lenses

Contact lenses give the option of having a different look but can also be beneficial during sports and outdoor activities. At Bulkington Eye Clinic our optometrists are fully experienced to fit most types of contact lenses and we have access to all the major suppliers and many specialised laboratories.


To assess your suitability to contact lenses an eye examination followed by a contact lens consultation is required. The consultation will include the following:

  • Comprehensive assessment of the cornea and anterior eye structures
  • Discussion of your needs and hence selection on lens type
  • A short trial with the lenses selected for you
  • An assessment on the fitting of the lens and visions obtained
  • A teach on insertion and removal and handling of the lenses
  • Tuition on use, care and a personalised aftercare regime

Contact lens types
