Contact Lens Practice of the Year

Since 2007, Querido and Davidson Optometrists in Newcastle has seen a 272% increase in its contact lens business, with contact lens turnover increasing year on year and contact lens products now accounting for more than a fifth of practice income.

Today almost a quarter of contact lenses fitted at the practice are RGPs, including Ortho-K and specialist lenses such as intralimbal and mini-scleral lenses, while just under half of its soft contact lenses are non-spherical torics or multifocals.
