Soft options: finding the right contact lenses for you
Soft contact lenses are very comfortable and allow great flexibility in how you wear them, as a result they are worn by the majority of contact lens wearers.
We can provide custom fitted soft contact lenses for a huge range of eye shapes and prescriptions but most people are able to wear a disposable lens design that gives excellent comfort and vision.
Daily disposable contact lenses are worn for just a single day and then thrown away with no need to clean or store the lenses, they are especially convenient if you don’t want to wear contact lenses every day as you always have a fresh pair of lenses.
Reusable lenses have to be cleaned and disinfected using a suitable solution when you take them out. This is not difficult to do and reusable lenses are commonly disposed of after a month or fourteen days depending on the type. Reusable lenses are available in a wider range of prescriptions than daily disposable lenses and most people will be able to get a lens in their prescription.
Soft contact lenses are made from a range of different materials, all with varying properties. They can include a UV block, extra lubrication or be breathable.

Recycling in partnership with ACUVUE®
TerraCycle® and ACUVUE® have partnered to create a free recycling programme for any brand of soft contact lenses and blister packs. Simply collect your lenses and the blister packs that your lenses come in and drop into us next time you are in the practice or passing by. We will then send these off in bulk to Terracycle.
