Contact Lenses

At Zacks London Eye Clinic incorporating Andrew Gasson Contact Lenses our specialists, will advise you on the most suitable contact lenses available for your eyes.

Every patient wishing to be supplied with contact lenses requires a specialist contact lens consultation even if they are longstanding wearers. Advances in contact lens designs and new materials provide several fitting options for even the most complex prescriptions. It is always worth considering new products even if previous attempts at contact lens wear have failed.

Extended and continuous wear contact lenses

Super permeable lenses can be worn for several days or weeks continuously. They are particularly beneficial for patients who have handling difficulties.

Toric Specialist Contact Lenses for Astigmatism

Tailor made toric contact lenses are available in soft, hard RGP, and scleral designs to correct even the highest prescriptions and most irregular corneas.

Keratoconus – Specialist Contact Lenses

As keratoconus progresses, specialist RGP contact lenses, and hybrid or scleral designs can provide good visual correction even in advanced cases.

Bifocal and Multifocal Contact Lenses

We have several options for presbyopic patients to obtain a good visual range, combining distance and reading prescriptions in bifocal and multifocal contact lenses.

Cosmetic and Prosthetic – Specialist Contact Lenses

We provide cosmetic and prosthetic contact lenses for film and TV as well as to help patients hide disfiguring eye conditions or change the colour of their eyes.

Chromagen Tinted Lenses

Chromagen contact lens tints can be used to enhance colour perception for people who are ‘colour blind‘ or to help alleviate visual stress in patients with dyslexia or reading difficulties.

Hybrid – Specialist Contact Lenses

Hybrid contact lenses have an RGP centre with a soft surround, combining the comfort of a soft lens with the visual acuity of a hard RGP lens.

Piggyback – Specialist Contact Lenses

Piggyback fitting places a hard RGP lens on top of a soft lens providing a flexible system to help even the most challenging patients.

Scleral contact lenses

Scleral contact lenses are very large rigid gas permeable contact lenses which fit onto the sclera or white of the eye, used when the corneal surface is very irregular or dry.

Mini Scleral/Semi Scleral Contact Lenses

Mini-scleral RGP lenses, provide the benefits of a scleral lens in a smaller design. They can provide good vision, for irregular eyes with a stable, comfortable fit.

Orthokeratology – Specialist Contact Lenses

Orthokeratology treatment involves wearing specially designed rigid gas-permeable contact lenses, during sleep, to gently re-mould the cornea to correct myopia (short-sight).

Contact Lenses Following Corneal Refractive Surgery (Lasik, Lasek, PRK, RK)

Standard contact lenses may not fit very well following corneal refractive surgery but there are specialist contact lenses which can provide comfortable clear vision.
