Contact Lenses

At Mahdi Opticals we fit soft contact lenses from several different suppliers so that we can prescribe the most appropriate solution for your lifestyle.
Soft contact lenses are manufactured from plastics which absorb water into their structure making them feel soft and flexible.  Soft contact lenses are  usually comfortable straight away and are ideal for daily wear. They are unlikely to dislodge from the eye making them suitable for sports or use in dusty conditions.

Our first-choice fitting modality is usually disposable soft contact lenses. Disposable soft lenses tend to be very thin and very comfortable providing a great solution for part time or full time wear.

Replacement Frequency of Disposable Soft Contact Lenses

Disposable soft contact lenses are available on a daily, fortnightly or monthly replacement basis.

Increasing the replacement frequency means that deposits on the contact lens surface are minimised thereby reducing risks of discomfort, allergies and infections.

Daily disposable lenses have the added benefit of reduced maintenance as they are thrown away after wear. Whereas careful contact lens (and case) hygiene is essential for any other soft contact lenses that are worn multiple times.

Prescription Ranges of Disposable Soft Contact Lenses
Recently there have been considerable advances in the prescription ranges of disposable soft contact lenses. We can therefore usually find a comfortable disposable solution to suit most visual requirements and wearing requirements.
