Heron Eyecare optometrists have advanced training and experience in fitting all types of contact lenses. Contact lens wear should give clear vision, comfortable vision and should be easy to handle. Our advanced technology allows us to map the shape of your eye so that, even in the most complicated cases, we can fit custom-designed lenses to your eyes.
Daily Disposable Contact Lenses
Daily disposable soft contact lenses are very comfortable. They need to be replaced every day but are the safest type of soft contact lens wear. Daily disposable lenses are available in the wide range of prescriptions, including for astigmatism and multifocal designs for distance and near vision.
Myopia Control Disposable Lenses
An excellent alternative to orthokeratology is daily disposable Myopia control contact lenses. MiSight and NaturalVue are the two Myopia control daily disposable lenses currently available.
Bandage Contact Lenses
Contact lenses can be used as a treatment to heal eye injuries and for dry eye sufferers. The contact lens is used to protect the surface of the eye but does need to be replaced regularly.
Orthokeratology contact lenses are used to correct Myopia and to prevent Myopia from getting worse. These contact lenses are custom designed rigid lenses, which are worn while you sleep. The lenses adjust the shape of your cornea to correct your vision so that glasses or contact lenses are not required to be worn during the day to have clear vision. Orthokeratology is very safe for children and adults. Advanced new technology lenses are now able to correct more difficult prescriptions including for reading vision.
Rigid contact lenses (RGPs) are one of the safest types of contact lenses and have been worn for over 50 years. Modern rigid contact lenses are custom designed to be far more comfortable and deliver the clearest vision possible. Rigid contact lenses are in excellent option for high prescriptions, multifocal distance and near vision, and for Keratoconus.
Scleral contact lenses are often the most comfortable contact lens you can wear. Scleral contact lenses are custom-designed to the shape of your eye, which allows very comfortable and very clear vision. Scleral contact lenses are often used for severe dry eye, advanced Keratoconus or corneal grafts.
Hybrid contact lenses are a combination of a rigid contact lens surrounded by a soft contact lens edge. This can improve the comfort of the rigid contact lens while still achieving the clearer vision of a rigid contact lens. Hybrid lenses are ideal for high prescriptions, multifocal distance and near vision, and Keratoconus.
Orthokeratology, corneal rigid, hybrid and scleral contact lenses require customised contact lens fitting. Hugh Bradshaw and Adam Barron have the expertise to fit these customised lenses.
