Contact Lenses

From daily disposables to monthly wear, single vision, monovision or varifocal, We offer a comprehensive range of contact lenses to suit everyone, in any situation.

Contact lens technology keeps changing, and we now offer several types of lenses in the new generation of silicone hydrogel materials.

These lenses have five times the oxygen transmissibility of other soft contact lenses, making them ideal for anyone who has had problems tolerating lenses in the past or who wears lenses for long hours.

First Time Users & Trail Period

If you are new to contact lenses, we will discuss the pros and cons of the different type of lenses and advise you which are suitable to try.

Should you wish to try to contact lenses, we will arrange an appropriate appointment. Our Optometrist will begin with a full eye examination, and then, after carrying out a number of essential checks, will place the lenses onto the front surface of your eyes for you to allow you to feel just how comfortable modern lenses are and to check the vision with them.

Following this, you will be taught how to handle the lenses and care for them before taking them home for an extended trial.

Sport Vision Ireland

At Craig Henderson Optometrists

Sports Vision Ireland designs tailor-made visual training programs for both teams and individuals. All applications are based on sound optometric principals and are developed by sports vision consultants who are also qualified, Optometrists.

Sports Vision Ireland aims to work in conjunction with coaches and athletes to design tailor-made, sport-specific optometric assessment and sports vision training for both individual and team athletes.

The ability to catch a ball requires continuous convergence of the eyes, assessing the speed of the ball and predicting its path. To actually catch a ball, one must combine eye inputs with activation of the body's motor system to get the hands in the correct place. It has been shown that athletes with better depth perception would be more successful at catching compared to athletes with poor depth perception. It would seem difficult to find fault with the concept of training biological systems to maximise their normal functions. This would be especially true when it comes to athletic performance.
