Free contact lens fittings and check-ups

11 Jan 2017

Students in the final year of their optometry degree provide a clinical service to members of the public as part of their training at the University

During these clinical sessions, the students are supervised by a fully-qualified optometrist staff member. As an incentive for patients to attend the contact lens clinic (and therefore provide clinical experience for our students), the clinic offers free contact lens fittings, trials and check-ups for all staff, students and members of the general public (16 years and above). They stock a wide range of contact lenses from all the main contact lens manufacturers including daily disposable, monthly disposable, coloured, toric, rigid and bifocal contact lenses.

All contact lens wearers and those wishing to try contact lenses for the first time are welcome.

The contact lens clinic is situated in the Carys Bannister Building, just off Dover Street. 

Appointments

If you would like to attend the clinic, either for new contact lenses or for continuing contact lens aftercare (check-ups), please telephone:
