Contact lenses are a practical and important optical aid and at Mallon+Taub our optometrists specialise in contact lens assessments and contact lens fitting. We use all leading brands of soft daily disposables, soft monthly and soft toric and progressive contact lenses. We also fit all types of gas permeable lenses.
A contact lens assessment takes approximately 45 minutes. During your consultation we will examine the ocular surface and the tear film of the eye and assess if contact lenses are suitable for you. We will then recommend the best type of contact lens for you. As a fully independent practice, we have unrestricted access to all types of contact lenses available on the UK market. We will also explain and demonstrate how to insert and remove your contact lenses safely and discuss lens care and hygiene. For our contact lens users we recommend aftercare visit every three to six months.
If you have an up-to-date (less than 12 months old) contact lens prescription from another optician, we are able to provide you with a supply of contact lenses.
