Contact lenses are a great alternative

At Ridlingtons Opticians, our eye experts can help you get to grips with comfortable contact lenses, whether it’s every day or just now and again. 

We’ll show you how to fit them, and how to look after your eyes, day in and day out. And if your eyes change over time, we’ll make sure they’re examined regularly, so you’re always wearing the right lenses for you.


Why contact lenses

If you prefer not to wear glasses or your lifestyle is not suited to wearing glasses on a daily basis, contact lenses are your best bet. With advances in technology, today’s contact lenses offer more comfort and convenience than ever before.

You can choose to use daily disposable lenses, which take away the added hassle of using cleaning solutions. Alternatively, reusable contact lenses are perfect for a frequent lens wearer and are especially helpful if you have complex vision issues.

You will find a wide selection of different types of contact lenses including toric and multifocal lenses, which boast cutting edge technology. For the fashion-conscious, we have an array of coloured contact lenses that will make your style statement loud and clear!

The right care plan for you!

Wearing contact lenses for the first time can be quite daunting. Our friendly opticians will put you at ease by explaining all the product features in detail and answering any doubts you may have. Technological advances in contact lenses mean that lenses can be used to correct many vision-related problems as soon as they are identified. So if your child or teenager has any eyesight problems, bring them down to Ridlingtons Opticians and our optometrist will recommend the correct contact lenses for them.

Once you have decided which lenses to buy, we will help you with the correct eye care practices for using your contact lenses optimally. Our Care Plan offers you great value, continued service as well as free professional eye care. Aftercare consultations with our practitioners will maintain your eye health and enhance your comfort as you continue to use contact lenses.

At Ridlingtons Opticians you can find a complete range of contact lenses to suit your requirements. You may also want to book an eye test to make sure that your ocular health is top-notch and check if your prescription has changed. You can contact us to book an appointment online or call us on 020-8647-4321.

Eye care help and advice

At Ridlingtons Opticians we understand that making the right choices when it involves Eye Care is extremely important. We can guide you in making wise choices that suite your needs based on your test results.

Ridlingtons Opticians have the facilities to produce over 90% of single vision spectacle from stock frames and lenses in approximately 20 minutes from placing your order – to completion.
Therefore, many of our customers can take home their new spectacles the same day!

If lenses need to be ordered in – then it may take up to 5-6 working days .

In our onsite workshop we do more than just simple tightening – up jobs, but can execute a number of repairs like replacement front hinges, solders, rewire of semi-rimless and also replacement of rimless pegs on sides and bridges of rimless frames.

Not everything is repairable of course, but if we can’t do it – nobody can !
