In the past few years there have been huge improvements in the technology behind contact lenses and lens wearing has more than doubled as a result.  There is a vast choice of different types available for various situations such as these:

•    At the office.  With the advent of air conditioning and modern heating systems in offices, many of us experience dry eyes in a work environment.  Contact lenses now incorporate the technology to provide excellent oxygen delivery for healthier looking eyes and moisture locking to give comfort at the end of a long day.

•    When playing sport.  Lenses are proven to provide better peripheral vision than glasses, something that can give you the crucial edge in many sports.  They eliminate the risks of glasses slipping or falling off too.  Plus they don’t mist up and can be worn comfortably under goggles, a mask or helmet.

•    For social events.  For a start they give you a smart, natural look.  There are also benefits if you like to work hard and play hard.  Modern moisture locking technology means you get an ultra-smooth lens and a high level of oxygen getting to your eyes, keeping them looking white, bright and above all healthy.
