Trial Contact Lenses: What do we use them for?

As part of our suitability consultations we can offer a trial with high quality contact lenses from Bausch and Lomb to simulate as much as possible what your vision would be like post-surgery, at no additional cost.

We offer a range of soft disposable contact lenses:

What if I am unsuitable for normal lenses?

Here at Cathedral Eye Clinic we specialise in Maxim CV semi-scleral lenses.

Ideal for patients suffering from:

  • Contact lens related dryness
  • Poor vision with sort toric lenses
  • Discomfort with normal corneal lenses
