Today over 3 million people in the UK wear contact lenses.
The idea was first thought of as long ago as 1508 by Leonardo da Vinci. Hard lenses were first used to correct
the eye in 1920. Soft lenses were invented in 1956 and became available to the general public in 1970.
Hard lenses are rarely fitted today.
Martin Haynes Opticians supply soft and rigid gas permeable lenses of all kinds.
We are now also supplying a revolutionary new system of eye
therapy called Ortho K. Please click here
