Contact Lenses

Naveen Opticals provides an excellent contact lens service to customers with high-quality and comfort while providing a true price advantage at the same time.
Our contact lens professionals are available every day to advise you and to ensure that your contact lenses requirements are met.Our service provides for both novice and existing wearers.


Daily Disposable

Great for both occasional and full time wearers, Daily Disposables are quickly becoming the best modality in contact lens wear! By using a brand new lens every day, your eye is much less likely to develop microbial infections (compared with traditional re-usable lenses) and whereas original Daily Disposables have  comfortable & health lens wear all day every day.

Available for:

Short Sight, Far Sight, Astigmatism, Presbyopia (Varifocal).


Monthly Disposable

Great for full time wearers, reusable contact lenses have been around for many years and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials. These rely on greater care, as a single lens sometimes has to last up to a month, but can be more cost effective when worn full time. The wide range of reusable lenses means that they can be better for people with stronger prescriptions (which may not be available in a daily disposable). Modern reusable lenses tend to be made of Silicon Hydrogel materials, which enable more oxygen to the front of your eye, thereby allowing a longer wear time and even overnight wear - imagine waking up with clear vision!

Available for:

Short Sight, Far Sight, Astigmatism, Presbyopia (Varifocal).


Toric (for Astigmatism)

Whilst the more common short & long sighted prescriptions can be corrected with standard "spherical" contact lenses, Astigmatic Prescriptions require a "toric" lens. These more specialised lenses allow better accuracy at correcting the distortion that's seen at all distances with an astigmatic or "rugby-ball shaped" eye. Toric lenses are now available in more and more varieties, including Daily Disposable, Monthly Reusable, Traditional Hydrogel, or breathable Silicon Hydrogel materials.

Available for:

Short Sight, Far Sight, Astigmatism, Presbyopia (Varifocal).


Varifocal (for Presbyopia)

As our eyes age, the crystalline lens inside becomes harder and can no longer change shape to vary its focus. This means that after the age of 45-50, we all find that we need extra help adjusting our focus from distance to near. These Varifocal contact lens options provide a stronger prescription for near, allowing you to read more comfortably without glasses, whilst maintaining great distance vision at the same time!


Why Choose Contact Lenses?

Contact lenses are better than ever before. More comfortable, more breathable and more suitable than ever for all types of prescriptions. If you're new to lenses, you may have a few questions that give you pause for thought, so let's go ahead and answer them!


Are Contact Lenses Safe?

Yes, so long as you follow the care and wear instructions provided by your eyecare professional. Our number one rule is to always wash and dry your hands thoroughly before handling your contact lenses. If you have cold or flu-like symptoms, it's also a good idea to switch to glasses until you're well again. Speaking of infections, there is no evidence to suggest that wearing lenses increases your chances of getting COVID-19. As long as you follow hygiene procedures stringently, contact lenses are a great option for vision correction!


Can You Switch Between Contacts And Glasses?

Yes, and you don't necessarily need to choose one over the other.

If you're wearing your face mask for long periods of time, you might prefer contact lenses to avoid having to deal with fogged up glasses. For those of you who are avid sporting individuals, you might choose contacts for crystal clear, panoramic vision, and also so your glasses avoid getting damaged or broken. Contact lenses are also great for creating a natural look that suits every outfit for nights out or special occasions.


Can You Get Varifocal Contact Lenses?

Yes, contact lenses can be made for virtually all your prescriptions. At Naveen Opticals independent opticians in staines, we provide and fit a complete range of contacts including:

Can Children Wear Contact Lenses?

Yes, in fact we find that many children embrace the responsibility that comes with wearing them very well, becoming experts in no time. Our experienced staff have successfully fitted contacts for children as young as 8 years old, and even offer special daily disposable lenses that are designed to slow down the progress of short sightedness in children.
