Here at Arnott Eye Associates, our Optometrists offer a comprehensive fitting service of all types of contact lenses as well as refraction.

Advancements in lens material and design mean a far wider range of prescriptions including complex and keratoconic patients can be fitted with more comfortable, breathable lenses healthier for the eye.

Multifocal contact lenses are now available in daily disposable form as well as bi-monthly and monthly. More complex prescriptions can be catered for in a custom made lens renewable every 3 or 6 months.

For patients not suited to multifocals or for those considering blended vision with regards to refractive lens exchange, disposable contact lenses are an ideal solution to trial monovision before opting for permanent surgery.

Our Optometrists will consider your prescription and your requirements before selecting lenses best suited to your visual needs. After fitting and initial assessment, patients are taught the correct method of inserting and removing lenses, whether soft or rigid gas permeable. A wearing schedule and lens care will be discussed. A follow up appointment is usually recommended within 2 weeks to address any issues that may have arisen within the trial period.

Nutritional supplements have been shown, through various modalities of research, to have a positive benefit to eye health.

Taking the supplement Flaxseed oil, a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acid, can help to reduce dry eyes in a more natural way.

Two vey important nutrients in the maintenance of good eye health are Lutein and Zeaxanthin. They have been shown, together with meso-zeaxanthin, to enrich macular pigment thus helping to protect against macular degeneration. Lutein and Zeaxanthin are effective antioxidants helping to neutralise free radicals and filtering harmful blue light.

As well as nutritional supplements, Arnott Eye Associates provide a range of other products beneficial to optimal eye health and function.

One of the major factors behind sore irritated eyes is that they may simply be dry and require a lubricant. We offer a large number of lubricants that compliment the natural tear constituents as well as pre soaked lid hygiene wipes and a microwaveable bag, designed by an Ophthalmologist, to help with symptoms of dry eye and blepharitis.
