Contact Lens Clinic

The Contact lens clinic offers free appointments in the student clinic every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon during term time (October - March). The professional clinic offers appointments everyday.

The clinic offers quality care for normal and specialised contact lens fitting. We welcome patients who have had any difficulty in finding contact lenses with which they are satisfied. The clinic also provides clinical training to undergraduate optometry students during the semester periods. Students are supervised by members of university staff or visiting contact lens practitioners.

Eye Examination being carried out.

The clinic has a professional and friendly environment. It is well equipped and a wide selection of contact lenses and care regimens are stocked. This allows the best possible clinical care to be provided to individual patients. In addition, a video slit-lamp and camera unit allow for careful record keeping of the patient's ocular health and for exiting clinical teaching.

Charges are different according to the contact lens type prescribed. NHS vouchers are accepted towards the payment of contact lenses and spectacles.
