We want to offer some guidance and reassurance on what's best to do when it comes to ordering and applying your contact lenses for the coming weeks.
If your continuous supply of contact lenses is already processed with home delivery and paid for via direct debit, you don’t need to take any action, this will also continue as normal. If you would now like to have home delivery of your contact lenses, or add regular contact lens solutions or dry eye products, please call us on 0800 40 20 20 and speak to a member of the team who will arrange this for you.
For those who don’t pay for their contact lenses through direct debit, firstly, there's no need to stock up, just make sure you order them in good time. We can arrange for your contact lenses to be delivered directly to you, as well as your regular contact lens solutions and dry eye products.
To make life even easier, you can now reorder your contact lenses online. Simply click the link below, fill out your details and a member of our team will be in touch shortly to process your order.
Please note: When ordering solutions, eyedrops and Macushield, a charge of £3.95 applies for all orders to cover postage costs. Due to current postal service delays, items are taking up to three weeks to arrive from date of dispatch. Customers are also restricted to two of any of these items.
There is currently no evidence to suggest any correlation between the usage of contact lenses and the spread of COVID-19 or a Coronavirus infection related to contact lens use.
To help maintain healthy contact lens wear, all contact lenses wearers should follow correct lens wear and care instructions, as prescribed by your Leightons Contact Lens Practitioner. These include following good hygiene practices. We strongly recommended you do not wear contact lenses when generally unwell, for example when you have a cold or flu, and wear your spectacles until you are fully recovered.
If you need to order your regular contact lens solutions or dry eye products please call us on 0800 40 20 20 or contact your local branch and we can arrange a delivery to you.
Good hygiene is a must when handling your contact lenses, even more so with the current circumstances. Always make sure you wash your hands for 20 seconds and dry them thoroughly with a towel when:
- Handling contact lenses and lens cases
- Applying contact lenses (even if the lens is new and directly from the packaging)
- Removing your contact lenses
It's important to also remember not to touch your face with unwashed hands. For further advice, download the BCLA's (British Contact Lens Association) Contact Lens Wear and Coronavirus guidance linked below.
If you have any questions about ordering your contact lenses, or anything else to do with your eye and ear health, we will be more than happy to help - we're only a phone call away.
