Contact Lenses

At The Village Optician we fit and supply a full range of contact lenses.

Soft contact lenses

Our Opticians specialise in the latest contact lenses, using silicone hydrogel materials. These new materials deliver around 4 times the amount of oxygen to the eye than the older contact lens materials which means much safer, healthier contact lens wear. This allows longer wearing times which gives much more wearing flexibility.

These are now available as daily and monthly wear lenses.

You can find more information about the contact lenses our Opticians use at


Rigid gas permeable contact lenses

RGP contact lenses are used for some patients when soft lenses aren’t suitable. More in depth measurements need to be taken to ensure optimum fit.

To find out more about the contact lenses our opticians provide, please contact  your local branch.

"I love my new glasses - thank you. I am especially impressed with the new Varilux lens that you recommended - as you know I was a bit sceptical at first as I thought all Opticians sold the same quality lenses'"

- JP, Durham

"I have tried the rest now I have found the best (truly)! The patience, attentiveness and caring way the whole team at the Newton Aycliffe branch dealt with my varifocal lens problem was outstanding. It was such a relief to find out my vision problem could be resolved; I would highly recommend this optician to anyone.
Very professional and above all freindly staff - nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Stephen and Michael for going the extra mile - I know my eye sight problem was a challenge! Thank you so very much and long may you continue to do a grand job"

- YB, Newton Aycliffe
