Spectacles, also known as eyeglasses, are essentially prescription glass mounted in a frame that can be worn in front of the eyes to provide vision correction. They have been used for centuries and modern spectacles come in a huge array of types, including designer frames. They remain a popular option among many of our clients in Walton-on-Thames, who come to us for children’s eye tests, adult eye examinations and optical goods.
The main benefits of spectacles include:
A contact lens is a thin, hard or soft prescription lens designed to float on the tear film layer on the surface of the cornea. They function much like regular spectacles by refracting and focusing light so objects appear more clearly. When trying contact lenses for the first time at our opticians in Walton-on-Thames, or if it has been a while, contact lens-focused eye tests are required. These eye examinations differ slightly to regular ones, as we will check the front surface of your eyes to make sure you can wear contact lenses comfortably and safely.
The main benefits of contact lenses include:
