Specialised Contact Lens Fitting

We specialise in fitting contact lenses for difficult corneas, patients with keratoconus, high amounts of astigmatism, multifocal contact lenses or dry eyes. With the use of our computerised CORNEAL TOPOGRAPHER we can accurately measure corneal curvature and prescribe the perfect fitting contact lens.

Dry Eye Analysis

We use a computerised Keratograph, anterior segment camera and Slitlamp microscope to thoroughly examine your tear layer and lacrimal system to give you an accurate report of the condition of your tear layer, eye lids and the reason for your dry eyes. A suitable treatment plan will then be offered. Please ask about the Dry Eye Analysis when you make your next appointment.

Children’s Vision

We test and provide therapy for children with learning problems.
