Contact Lenses

Arthur Hayes Opticians we were among the first practices in Britain to fit the very first contact lenses over 60 years ago. We have continued to build our knowledge about contact lenses in the years following, working closely with contact lens manufacturers to tailor your specific requirements to the correct lens for your prescription + wearing regime.

The newest soft contact lens technologies including silicone hydrogel, toric lenses + multifocal lenses as well as the more traditional lenses, including rigid gas permeable lenses (hard contact lenses) + contact lenses for conditions such as keratoconus are available.

To compliment your contact lenses we have a selection of solutions to meet your particular contact lens requirements. For our monthly lens wearers, we have a scheme whereby your lenses are sent straight to your home with solutions for your convenience.

At Arthur Hayes East Grinstead we now stock Maui Jim Polarized Sunglasses.


At Arthur Hayes Opticians we are proud stockists of Maui Jim Sunglasses.

Maui Jim got its start in 1980 as a small company selling sunglasses on the beach in Lahaina, Hawaii. Seeing a need in the market for technology that could combat intense glare and harmful UV while bringing the brilliant colours of the island to life, Maui Jim engineered the revolutionary PolarizedPlus2® lens. Incorporated into seven new sunglass styles, the Classic Collection was introduced. Maui Jim now offers over 125 styles of sunglasses, 100% of which are polarized and protect from 100% of UVA and UVB rays.

These polarized sunglasses are available as an off the shelf product for those patients who do not require a prescription or glazed with a varifocal or single vision prescription. Some styles are also available as a bifocal reader. Seeing really is believing in the case of Maui Jim polarized sunglasses.

Please book your bespoke fitting at the East Grinstead practice today.
