At Anne Irving, we use our independence to offer you the widest possible choice - we are not tied to any individual range and use all available brands to get the contact lens choice that is just right for you.


We also use our 35 years experience in fitting contact lenses to offer advice and tackle even the most complex of cases.

The choice is yours - occasional or full-time use, soft or rigid contact lenses, daily, weekly, fortnightly or monthly disposable lenses, continuous wear, bifocal or multifocal contact lenses - there is something to suit everyone and we will help you make the right choice.


We offer all patients a free trial of contact lenses - whether you are trying them for the first time or if you wish to try out something new before committing to a change.


 If you have been told you are unsuitable for contact lenses, we may be able to help so please give us a ring.

How to Recycle Your Used Contact Lenses

How to Recycle Your Used Contact Lenses

Leading contact lens manufacturer Acuvue has partnered up with global recycling specialists Terracycle to create the ACUVUE Contact Lens Recycle Programme - a network of over 1000 drop off points up and down the UK. 


Anne Irving Optometrists in Kendal is one of those points, if you have any contact lens waste please feel free to drop it into the practice and place it in the designated bin in reception.

During current Covid restrictions we will still accept your waste but will ask you to deposit at the door to the practice.


What Waste Can You Recycle?

The contact lens recycling programme will accept any brand of soft, disposable contact lenses. Acuvue, CooperVision, dailies, monthlies – they’re all fine.


As well as the lenses, you can also recycle the foil and blister packaging that comes with it.


Waste that is NOT Accepted: 


  • Cardboard box packaging – these can be recycled along with your standard household recycling scheme

  • Rigid gas-permeable or hard contact lenses

  • Contact lenses solution bottles

  • Eye drop bottles

  • Contact lens cases
