Contact Lens Fitting
What is involved?
During our contact lens consultations, the optometrist will initially have a chat with you to discuss the above in more detail and ascertain your expectations. Considerations such as your lifestyle, leisure activities, and working environment will be made and then the appropriate measurements and necessary tests will be carried out before you are given professional advice on the most suitable lenses for you.
Once the best contact lens of choice has been selected it will be assessed on its performance on the eye. If satisfactory you will then be taught how to insert and remove the lenses before you are given trial contact lenses to take away.New and existing contact lens wearers will be guided to best wear and care routines customised for them.
A follow up appointment will then be arranged to review your progress and to give you the opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have.Regular contact lens after care checks are vital to ensure optimum vision, comfort and eye health are always maintained. The frequency of these checks will be recommended at the end of all appointments.
