Friendly, high-quality service - I found Keyes Eyecare to be extremely thorough with their testing, care and follow-up. ...they tried hard to find contact lenses that would let more oxygen through and still match the comfort of my current ones. I've never had such friendly, high quality service from an optician and would definitely recommend Keyes.

CONTACT LENS FAQs

How does the payment plan work?”

When you make your first order you pay for the first three months supply and set up a monthly direct debit for future payments.  This means that once your next three month supply is due, your lenses are fully paid for and ready to collect.  By way of example, if you are receiving three months supply of Air Optix Aqua, you pay £84 for your first three months supply and set up a direct debit for £28pcm starting at the end of the first month.

I have been wearing contact lenses for many years and as an experienced wearer think I would know when I need to come for a check up. Can I just come when I am having difficulties with my lenses or feel that there is a change in my eyes?”

Our care plan is set up to ensure that all of our contact lens wearers have regular aftercare.  Many contact lens associated problems occur without wearers being aware of them, so you may not be aware of problems developing until damage is done.  Our aim is for you to successfully wear contact lenses for many years to come. This is best achieved through our care plan.  We believe so strongly that this is the right approach for you that we don't provide contact lens care on a pay-by-appointment basis.

I have a prescription for contact lenses from another practice. Can I buy contact lenses from Keyes Eyecare without joining the care plan?”

We want to ensure that all of our contact lens wearers have thorough and regular examinations, so we only supply contact lenses to members of our care plan.

How old should my son or daughter be before they start wearing contact lenses?”

There is no age that is “too young” it depends on the individual needs and maturity of each child.  With multifocal lenses now being used for myopia control, it can be beneficial to start lens wear as young as 6.  Research has shown that primary school children do very well with contact lenses and we have many children wearing contact lenses confidently and successfully.  We allow plenty of time to teach them how to apply and remove lenses as well as look after their eyes and lenses.  We feel that our success in fitting younger children with contact lenses is because we do so in a fun and engaging way.

If this has answered all of your questions, that is great.  But you probably have other things that you want to know.  Why not phone us now to discuss your specific situation?
