Askew Eyewear in Stoke Newington stock a wide range of rigid gas permeable contact lenses and soft contact lenses
Soft contact lenses are easier to wear and do not need much getting used to. They are great for people who have an active lifestyle.
They are cheaper than rigid gas permeable lenses. However they do not correct all vision problems and you need to make regular appointments with Askew Eywear for follow-up care.
Rigid gas permeable lenses
These lenses are better for correcting certain complex eye conditions because of the materials from which they are made. As they do not contain water, they do not dry out like soft contact lenses.
But you do need to accommodate your eye to use these lenses, and you have to take them out each day to clean them.
Myopia Control Contact Lenses
At Askew, we are please to offer myopia control contact lenses which can help slow the rate of progression of myopia (shortsightedness).
