Tailor made soft contact lenses

At Zacks Eye Clinic in central London we see several patients with high prescriptions that fall outside disposable soft contact lens parameters. Tailor Made soft contact lenses can provide excellent vision and comfort for these people, especially if they cannot tolerate hard contact lenses.

Advantages of Tailor Made Soft Contact Lenses
The advantage of bespoke soft lenses is that they can be made to any size, shape and prescription to provide a comfortable solution for patients with high prescriptions and unusually shaped eyes.

Bespoke soft contact lenses can also be tinted or painted to personal cosmetic or prosthetic requirements.

Disadvantages of Tailor Made Soft Contact Lenses
The disadvantage of bespoke soft contact lenses is that they are more expensive than disposable soft contact lenses and therefore tend to be kept and worn for much longer. Debris accumulates on the contact lens surface over time leading to an increased risk of problems such as discomfort, infection and allergy. Rigorous contact lens care and hygiene, with specialist cleaning solutions in addition to wetting and soaking solutions is essential to maintain safe contact lens wear and healthy eyes.

Frequent Replacement Tailor Made Soft Contact Lenses
To improve lens hygiene and minimize the risks of long term contact lens wear, tailor made soft contact lenses can be supplied on a frequent replacement basis, whereby the price of each contact lens will decrease as the replacement frequency increases. Due to the nature of these products discounts are calculated on an individual basis depending on the supplier and replacement frequency and costs can be spread by means of a direct debit.
