Where do I start ?
First, a normal sight test and eye examination is needed for the optometrist to judge whether contacts are suitable for you and whether they will fulfil your expectations and provide realistic benefits. Our optometrists specialise in contact lens fitting and will fully discuss the pros and cons of contact lenses for your individual needs.
Should you wish to proceed, a contact lens examination and trial fitting will be necessary. Free trial periods will be arranged if applicable. No commitment to purchase lenses need be made until this point is reached, only the examination and initial fitting fees are payable.
What is included in the cost?
The price of your lenses will depend on the type of lens, the material it is made of and of course your individual prescription. This can only be quoted for after your initial examination and trial fitting.
All procedures and consultations required to perfect your fitting are included in the original price of the lenses. Specially trained clinical assistants will provide all the tuition and advice required in the use of your lenses, and our optometrists will always be on hand for regular aftercare. A full 12 months professional aftercare service is also included in the price of the lenses.
How much does it cost?
The fee for contact lens fitting is £45.00.
This fee includes all the appointments that your Optometrist recommends during the fitting process (minimum of 2), an appointment with our clinical assistant to teach you how to insert and remove the contact lenses and trial contact lenses for you to take home to try.
The sight test fee for private patients is £36.50. Some patients may be entitled to an NHS eye examination. To see if you are eligible click here. Contact lens fitting is not provided on the NHS.
It is very important that we see you regularly to ensure that your eyes are happy with the contact lenses. Your Optometrist will advise you when your aftercare appointments are due. Aftercare appointments are free to patients who purchase contact lenses directly from us.
The cost of your contact lenses will vary depending on your individual needs. Your Optometrist will discuss this with you during your fitting appointment.
We recognise that the cost of good quality solutions is a significant consideration and, to help our patients we provide the advantage of a discount on all solutions purchased from us.
Sheinman contact lens patients also enjoy special reductions on any spectacles and sunglasses they require.
