A contact lens assessment involves a full eye examination, an assessment to check for suitability to wear contact lenses. We then fit the patient with a lens, and then we go through a teach, instructing how to insert and remove the contact lenses safely. We advise of the do’s & don’ts of wear and go through a lens care regime. Once we are satisfied that the patient is proficient at handling, then patient tries out the lenses at home or for sport. We recommend an aftercare within a week to finalise the prescription and to ensure vision is stable. Once all is ok on that day the patient is advised to return for an annual aftercare.
We accept spectacle prescriptions from other opticians and can complete a fitting process if a sight test isn’t needed.
