It can not be stressed enough that reading a web page is no substitute for seeing an Optician or Medical Practitioner, these pages are for information purposes only
We have included information about long & short sightedness, common vision defects, medical issues and contact lens related eyecare
As Opticians our primary roles are eye health care and maximising quality of vision
Contact lens care
Contact lenses can provide a wonderful improvment in lifestyle to many people, and modern lenses are simple to use and easy to clean
Lenses work well whilst they are maintained correctly, but lack of cleaning or over wear can lead to problems with comfort, or even lead to infections
This series of pages has been written to help you understand some of the problems people have with their eyes, they are not a substitute for proper individual medical advice
We recommend that you seek specialist advice from either an eye hospital, your Doctor or Optician if you are at all concerned about your vision
Has the eye been red for less than 4 days?
Is the eye painful?
Has there been a change in quality of vision?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you should try and get to an optometrist or your GP (doctor), or your local hospital casualty department as soon as possible (preferably today)
