Contact Lenses

Whether you have been wearing contact lenses for years, or just fancy a change from wearing glasses we are here to help. Modern contact lenses are comfortable, easy to wear and suitable for most prescriptions.

As an independent optician we have the flexibility to deal with a wide range of manufacturers so no matter if you're after the convenience of a daily disposable for sports or a night out, or lenses suitable for wearing every day we can find the best lenses for you.

It is very important that contact lens wearers have regular checks to ensure healthy eyes and optimum vision. These are free to members of our Eyeplan Contacts scheme along with a generous discount on all purchases.

Contact lenses for all

It is now easier and more comfortable to wear contact lenses than ever before. No longer do you have to be either a contact lens or spectacle wearer. Nowadays you can wear either spectacles or contact lenses when you want. Perhaps you have a sporting or leisure activity that would be more enjoyable when wearing contact lenses.

BBR in Oswestry supply contact lenses from every major contact lens manufacturer. This allows us to offer you a choice of lenses to suit you, your visual requirements and your lifestyle needs. Some brands are just worn once and then thrown away. This eliminates the need and expense of contact lens solutions.

As a specialist contact lens practice BBR are able to fit and supply almost anyone with contact lenses, regardless of prescription. We also supply lenses to correct astigmatism and progressive lenses that are similar to varifocal spectacle lenses. So, you no longer have to be under 40 to benefit from contact lenses.

Lenses we supply include

Soft Contacts

By far and away the most common type of contact lens worn today. Great for sports activities, daily and also occasional wear, they provide wearers with tremendous freedom such as the ability to wear non-prescription sunglasses.

Daily Disposables

Since these lenses are designed to be worn once daily and then thrown away, they are great for busy individuals who do not have time for the normal soft lens regime of cleaning, disinfecting and storing. Also suitable for occasional wear.

Regular Replacement
Perhaps the most cost-effective lens type is the planned replacement lens. Often, this will be a two-week or monthly cycle where the lens is removed every day and stored overnight.  These lenses are well suited for addressing astigmatism issues.

Continuous Wear

Sometimes referred to as extended wear lenses, wearers can actually sleep in them and remove and replace them only once every 30 days. Specially constructed to permit enough oxygen to reach the eyes, they also require no storage regime.

Rigid Lenses

These lenses can take a little longer to get used to and initially are not as comfortable, but they have the advantage of not needing to be replaced as regularly as soft lenses. They are also suitable for a much larger range of prescription types.


Regular aftercare appointments are essential for maintaining the health and comfort of your eyes. At these, your optician will be able to give you reliable aftercare advice and can help if you have any problems with your lenses.

If you are a new wearer, you will need check-ups during the first weeks and months of wear. After that you should have regular check-ups as recommended by our optician.
