Contact Lens Fitting and Aftercare

A complete contact lens fitting and aftercare service is available.

We are experienced in fitting toric and multifocal contact lenses and will provide you with the aftercare that your eyes require for continued successful contact lens wear.

Wales Eye Care Service

We are fully accredited to provide Eye Health Examinations (extended examinations of ocular function and health) and Emergency Eye Examinations, funded by the Welsh Assembly Goverment as part of the Wales Eye Care Service. These tests may be requested by your doctor, or available to you if you have a family history of eye disease or an eye problem requiring further investigation or urgent attention.

Low Vision Services

Low vision can be helped in many cases by a range of vision aids. Visually impaired people in Wales can get the correct low vision aids for their eyesight problems from specially trained and accredited optometrists. These are loaned free of charge following a low vision assessment at RJD Jenkins Opticians, the scheme being funded by the Welsh Assembly Goverment.
