Hard Contact Lenses (Rigid Gas Permeable Lenses)

Rigid gas permeable lenses is usually used to correct complex prescriptions and certain irregular corneal conditions. This type of lens is made of materials with higher deposit resistance and it allows more oxygen into your eyes as compared to soft contact lenses. Due to the specialist nature of some of our contact lens work, we have a corneal topographer in our practice, which is an equipment rarely seen in standard optometric practices. A corneal topographer gives a complete map of the shape of the cornea, enabling the diagnosis of irregular corneal conditions and lens fitting of unusual-shaped corneas.


This is a procedure for correcting short-sightedness by wearing rigid contact lenses overnight. These lenses reshape the cornea during sleep, giving patients clear vision in the day without needing glasses or contact lenses. It is especially suitable for patients who enjoy water and contact sports. Orthokeratology is reversible and vision returns to pre-treatment level if the lenses are not worn. 


Keratoconus is an eye condition where the cornea changes shape as a result of corneal thinning. Diagnosis of Keratoconus can be confirmed with the use of our corneal topographer. Rigid gas permeable lenses are usually the best lens of choice in correcting Keratoconus to achieve a clear and stable vision than glasses and soft contact lenses.


Myopia, sometimes called short-sightedness, is often diagnosed in children from age 6 and can then get worse over time. Our innovative myopia control contact lenses aim to slow this progression whilst correcting vision. Our Ortho-K lenses may also help with this. If you have a question about these contact lenses and myopia control, please get in touch.

Soft Contact Lenses

We fit a wide range of soft contact lenses using all the major contact lens brands. Lens modalities available includes daily disposables, two-weekly replacement, monthly replacement, and extended wear (sleep-in lenses).

 “There are obvious BENEFITS in contact lens wear, such as for convenience, better vision and freedom in sports, wider field of view than glasses, and UV protection.”

Can children wear contact lenses?

There is no minimum recommended age for contact lens wear. Wearing contact lenses requires responsible wear and care of lenses so the suitability of lens wear in children depends on the motivation and independence of your child. Please feel free to discuss this with our Optometrists during the sight test if you would like some professional advice.

Our Myopia control contact lenses may be worth considering for children as an early intervention. Contact us today if you'd like to learn more.
