CONT LENS FITTINGSpecial Contact Lens Fitting

Contact lenses for some, are not just a wonderful alternative to glasses because they give an unlimited visual field, but provide the essential visual solution for their everyday life. Corneal conditions such as Keratoconus and Keratoglobus make it most of the time impossible for the patient to see clearly enough with glasses. The reduced and distorted vision with glasses, frequently affects disastrously the quality of life of such patients, especially if it is not adequate for driving or not adequate to keep such patients in employment.    

At Xenophontos Opticians we offer special contact lens fitting services not only for patients with corneal conditions like the ones mentioned above but also for patients who:

  • have undergone a corneal transplant; according to a study carried out at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London, approximately 50% of patients with keratoconus who have undergone a corneal transplant, will need a special fitting contact lens after their surgery, in order for their vision to be improved adequately
  • suffer from sever dry eye syndrome which can cause serious eye discomfort as well as poor vision
  • are unable to achieve good vision with glasses because of trauma that they have been exposed to one or both eyes (such traumas usually involve the front surface of the eye)
  • are uncomfortable in bright light because of eye trauma that has affected the iris
  • have undergone unsuccessful refractive surgery in the past  and as a result can only achieve satisfactory vision with special fitting contact lenses

Our Shops

The Agia Napa shop (1994) is a three level modernly decorated and fully equipped optical practice. It is situated on the central Archbishop Makarios Avenue, which is the main road of this well-known holiday resort, leading to its graphical harbor. The Nicosia shop (1995) is housed in a beautifully restored 18th century building in the heart of the revitalized center of old Strovolos. In 1988 the demolition of this building was averted by the intervention and protests of environmentalists. It carries more than a century of history and has an impressive height which is greater than 8 meters. The whole structure is supported by two majestic sculpted arches, while a wooden floor is complemented by rows of thick wooden beams holding up the ceiling.
