Benefits of Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are a great alternative to spectacles particularly for sport.

New contact lens designs and materials combined with the most compatible lens care solutions result in better comfort and affordability.

There are many types of contact lenses available on the market. At Forest Lakes Optometrist our clinicans will help you choose a contact lens system best suited for you.

Types of Contact Lenses


Can be daily, two weekly or monthly disposable. Daily disposable are the most convenient as they are discarded after one wear. Two weekly and monthly disposable lenses are removed each night, cleaned and stored in a contact lens solution.

Rigid Gas Permeable Contact Lenses

Also known as hard contact lenses they are not flexible like soft disposable lenses. These are used for irregular corneas such as Kerataconus and corneal refractive therapy in orthokeratology.

Custom Made Contact Lenses

These are tailored exactly for the eye. They are generally used for very high prescriptions.

Multifocal Contact Lenses

A great alternative to wearers of multifocal glasses. Available as daily or monthly disposable.

Oroton Glasses


At Forest Lakes Optometrist our spectacle lenses are supplied by Essilor and Hoya. Having multiple suppliers allows us to maximise lens options taking into account the prescription, the frame and most importantly the patients lifestyle and visual requirements.

We recommend newer designs of multifocal lenses giving wide fields of view and clearer vision.

Other options include high index lenses resulting in thinner, lighter glasses; polarised tinted lenses for prescription sunglasses and medium impact resistant materials for safety eyewear.

You can trust the staff at Forest Lakes Optometrist to help you with your choice of spectacle lens, and compliment it with the perfectly fitted frame.

With over 400 frames to choose from, the perfect fit can always be found in the latest styles and colours.

A large price range means all budgets can be considered with iconic brands such as Oroton, Jag, Guess and Mako through to the budget ranges, Maze and Maze Plus.

The frame selection process at Forest Lakes Optometrist brings together style and comfort with form and function.

Oroton Sunnies


At Forest Lakes Optometrist, our extensive range of sunglasses ensures a great fit and style for everyone, while still protecting the eyes from harmful UV radiation. All our sunglasses meet the Australian Standard for UV protection.

Choose from brands such as Guess, Oroton, Mako, Fish and Morrissey. Most can be fitted with prescription lenses.

For people who wish to enjoy the convenience of wearing the same pair of glasses for both indoor and outdoor activities, Forest Lakes Optometrist offers Transitions lenses that darken to reduce glare outdoors.
