Contact Lenses

More comfortable, clearer and more convenient than ever.

Bernie Lanigan Optometrist is accredited for speciality contact lenses in management of keratoconus, myopia control and other severe prescriptions; including:

• Scleral lenses
• Rigid gas permeable lenses
• Orthokeratology (hard contact lenses worn at night to correct distance vision during the day without the need of spectacles or contact lenses)

Soft contact lenses have been used for decades now and while the advancement in technology has changed almost everything around us, it is also true for contact lenses: they are now more comfortable, clearer and more convenient than ever.
They range from a daily disposable, fortnightly or monthly and can correct a range of different prescriptions including standard distance correction, multifocal designs and dual focus for myopia control.

When choosing a contact lens, several factors need to be taken into account:

  • Why do you want to wear them?
  • When do you want to wear them?
  • Do you want to wear them all the time or just on a special occasion?
Our Experts

Personalized By Our Experts.

At our clinic, we ask our clients all these questions to ensure that we determine the best prescription for you. This is important because even common complications such as infection and inflammation might lead to vision loss or blindness.

We also ensure that we determine the correct fit, size, material, curvature etc as well as best practices for use and care of your lenses for your eyes and lifestyle. With contact lens wear, you will need to be seen (at least) annually.

Our optometrist Laura will take the time to demonstrate correct usage, cleaning and also educate you on safest practice.


You may be considering a transition from glasses to lenses, or they might be a recent fascination to wear on a special occasion, whatever the reason visit our clinic to book an appointment for the best contact lens prescription.
