Perhaps you are thinking of buying contact lenses for the first time, if you need vision correction and don’t like wearing glasses, then contact lenses are for you.

There are a few things you may need to consider when buying contact lenses, particularly if you have never worn them before.

  • Do you have problems with dry eyes? If so opt for lenses that are silicon based, or you can use eye drops for comfort.
  • Do you suffer from any allergies? Allergies can make your eyes sensitive if so opt for daily disposable lenses.
  • What is your lifestyle? If you play a lot of sports daily disposable lenses are easier to plays sports in than wearing glasses. Hygiene – if your hands get dirty at work and you have lots of dirt and grime under your nails, or you smoke, daily disposable lenses will suit you best.
  • What type of job do you have? If your work has you staying up late of a night, extended wear lenses would suit you as they can be worn for longer periods of time.
  • If you work on a computer all day – staring at a screen can dry your eyes, so glasses (at work) would be your better option.
