Contact Lenses

As an independent optician, we can help you take advantage of the latest innovations with the widest possible range of contact lens types and brands. There have been so many developments in the last few years, so contact lenses are now an option for the vast majority of our customers.

Options for everyone
Even if you've found lenses uncomfortable in the past or have been told you're not a suitable candidate, then you might want to reconsider. With the latest technology, conditions such as dry eye syndrome, which many contact lens wearers used to complain about, are rarely a problem.

We'll support your choice
Single-use lenses, non-disposable options, gas permeable or toric contact lenses - the options are endless, and often overwhelming. But you don't need to worry. Following an eye examination, your optometrist or dispensing optician will take time to walk you through your options and build a plan that is tailored to your individual needs and personal choice.

Creating the right lens for you

Your eyes are unique - so your lenses should be too.

Correct support for you
One eye consists of more than two million working parts, so there is a lot that needs to be taken into consideration when choosing lenses. During a thorough eye examination, we'll put together a complete, bespoke prescription outlining exactly what you need. But that's just one part of the process - your lenses also need to suit your lifestyle. So together with our optometrist, you can explore your options. 

Complete protection
Your eye is the most responsive muscle in your body, but exposure to harmful UV and blue-violet light can be dangerous. We can help you go beyond simply correcting your vision to help you protect the health of your eyes in the longterm. There are more options than ever and we can explore what's right for you. 

Enhanced clarity
Your eyes process 24 million images in a lifetime and we want each one to be crystal clear. Our lenses use the latest Essilor technology to ensure you get picture-perfect clarity with resistance to smudges and scratches built-in. They'll also shield you from reflections - so you won't get distracting glares.

"I love my new glasses."

Thanks Claire and team. You always offer a great service. I love my new glasses.
MIKE.S - JULY 2024
"I have only just started using this optician but it is no exaggeration to say that I have received in a short while some of the best service and attention as I have from any company, not just any other optician."

I just thought I needed to write a few words about CG optical. I have only just started using this optician but it is no exaggeration to say that I have received in a short while some of the best service and attention as I have from any company, not just any other optician. They have an amazing collection of very prestigious and high-end frames. They also use Tokai lenses if required which are outstanding in thinness and performance. I did buy three pairs of glasses. As I have a slightly odd prescription I find it very difficult to find an optician that can make up glasses (particularly vari-focals) that work for me well. That said, they got it perfect first time using Tokai lenses.
From the minute I walked in to the opticians, Claire and her team made me feel very welcome and also gave me some very good advice on the types of frames that would fit my face and look good.
Unfortunately, one of the frames was faulty. It was a special edition frame from Hublot, but Claire within 24 hours had sourced a brand-new frame and a new complete set of glasses were made up within 48 hours. We did try repairing the original pair, but because the tiny screws didn’t quite match, Claire wasn’t happy hence the new frame. That to me was amazing. I think companies and people are probably best judged on how they handle problems and the way Claire handled this was exemplary. Nothing is too much trouble. The service is professional and friendly and I will continue to be a customer of CG optical. I shall look forward to buying more glasses and sunglasses in the future.
"I would recommend Clare and the team at CG Optical without hesitation."

I received attentive and friendly service from start to finish, and for the first time in ages I now have a pair of glasses that I love and that suit me. I would recommend Clare and the team at CG Optical without hesitation.
