If you’ve answered ‘Yes’ to the question above you might like to know that many people are now wearing more than one lens. A growing number of GetLenses.co.uk customers wear monthlies, dailies and coloured lenses, a trend that is set to increase month on month. For others, the need to try other lenses is due to their prescribed lenses not performing well enough.

“When I recently asked our customer service team the top 10 reasons why our customers call, number three was because they want to know what other lenses they could wear”, says Brendan O’Brien, resident optometrist at GetLenses.co.uk. Reasons given were dry eyes, complaining their lenses feel gritty by the end of the working day and wearing the same lenses for years and wanting to try different lenses to improve comfort and increase the amount of hours they can wear their lenses.

In the year 2013 there is no need for anyone to put up with dry and gritty eyes and there is no reason why people should not wear different types of lenses. Most modern lenses fit most eyes and there are contact lenses for any wearing pattern and lifestyle. Some of you may sleep out occasionally and would like lenses you can sleep in every now and again. Others would like to keep their lenses in for 16-18 hours a day. For other people it is all about choice: coloured lenses for a night out, monthly lenses for normal wear and dailies when on holiday. For many, a simple change of lenses or addition of another type of lens could make all the difference to their quality of life.

For people who have been wearing the same lenses for years and years, the reason for wanting to try different lenses is usually because their old lenses are no longer suited to their lifestyle. New generation contact lenses are made from Silicone Hydrogel and lenses like Acuvue Trueye and Oasys, Biofinity and Air Optix Aqua offer unequalled comfort for up to 16 hours a day.

“I was recently asked to produce a guide showing the upgrade and compatible lenses for all contact lenses for our customer service team to better advise our customers, but I also hope it will give the public a bit more knowledge about contact lenses so they can choose the ones they want to try”. The guide can be seen at: www.getlenses.co.uk/guide-to-contact-lenses.

Brendan continues: “Please ensure you talk to your optician if you have an astigmatism or any other eye problems. We obviously always recommend yearly check-ups with your optician as an eye test can reveal a lot more than poor sight”.
