We are able to tailor the lenses for your needs so you can enjoy the freedom of contact lenses, and get even better vision than you would with spectacles.
Our expert team is experienced in fitting patients with Keratoconus and other Ectatic corneal disorders including damaged, distorted and diseased corneas.
One of our optometrists, Imran Darbar has first-hand experience of Keratoconus which gives him an added wealth of knowledge about managing the eye condition. You can read more about his diagnosis journey and management tips here.
What is Keratoconus?
The eye condition affects the clear dome-shaped window at the front of your eye called the cornea. It is the cornea’s job to produce a clear image by focussing light into your eye. Patients who have the condition will find their cornea becomes thinner and therefore weaker at the centre which causes issues such as distorted and blurry vision. The light being focussed by your cornea forms an unclear image at the back of your eye (also known as the retina).
In the early stages, glasses may help correct vision, but as the condition progresses you may find that glasses no longer help. However, a lot of patients with irregular corneas find that contact lenses can help to get an excellent level of vision. General soft lenses may be adequate in the early onset of the disease but as the cornea changes specialised lenses are needed.

Imran's Keratoconus Story
Our optometrist, Imran Darbar, gives us a first-hand account on his keratoconus story from diagnosis to how it affects his daily life.
Occlusive Contact Lenses
These lenses are designed for patients who suffer from double vision (diplopia). They are therapeutic contact lenses aided to improve or in some cases illuminate double vision.
Cosmetic Contact Lenses
We provide contact lenses for patients who have been through ocular trauma or ocular related surgery. We understand the importance of finding a subtle and comfortable solution for you. We can fit lenses that are hand painted or printed lenses to cover scars or damage to the front of the eye and improve visual appearance by copying the appearance of the unaffected eye.
