We have a full range of leading disposable lens products from the major manufacturers including the new ‘Dailies Total 1’ lens from Alcon. Dailies Total 1 is a revolutionary contact lens being the first 'water gradient' contact lens. The core has a low water content which allows for superior breathability, low dehydration and excellent handling whereas the outer surface has a water content approaching 100% with the surface being as soft as the surface of the eye for unrivalled comfort.
RIGID Gas Permeable (RGP) Lenses
Rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses are known for providing the highest quality vision, and some conditions such as keratoconus require RGPs to be worn as the vision is far superior than can be achieved with spectacles.
Some patients with sensitive eyes may find RGP lenses difficult to wear due to issues with adaptation. They can also be prone to mislocating or attracting foreign particles beneath the lenses at times. Fortunately, hybrid lenses or larger designs known as 'mini-scleral' or 'semi-scleral' lenses have been developed that provide exceptional comfort even in windy, dusty or dry conditions.
At Eyetech Optometrists, we frequently prescribe all forms of RGP lenses, including mini-scleral, toric, and hybrid lenses for patients of all ages.
We have a range of speciality lenses for specific applications such as orthokeratology, keratoconus, post-corneal graft, post-refractive surgery, trauma, tints and more.
