Specialist Contact Lenses

At Zacks London Eye Clinic (Warren Street, Fitzrovia, London W1) we have contact lens specialists (optometrists who specialise in complex contact lenses) available daily.

Every patient wishing to be supplied with contact lenses requires a specialist contact lens consultation even if they are longstanding wearers. Contact lens designs have rapidly advanced in recent years, with new materials providing several fitting options in correcting even the most complex prescriptions. It is therefore always worth considering new products even if previous attempts at contact lens wear have failed.
