Contact Lens Examination
Contact lens technology is constantly evolving and improving. Advancements in the industry now allow more people than ever to wear lenses due to the diverse ranges available. Contact lenses give the wearer freedom to see clearly without spectacles.
Our Opticians have extensive experience and knowledge in contact lenses and can be trusted to offer the best advice and guidance. During your initial consultation, the optometrist will discuss what you wish to wear lenses for, and check the front of the eyes to ensure they are healthy and suitable for contact lenses.
After carrying out the necessary checks and discussing the various options available, the optometrist will determine what lenses are best suited for you personally, based on your lifestyle. A trial pair of lenses will then be fitted to enable you to experience what they feel like in your eyes. The optometrist will then check the prescription of the lenses and examine how the lenses are in your eyes to ensure they are the best fit. You will be given trial lenses and then return for a check to see how successful the lenses have been.
We offer full contact lens guidance including the safe insertion and removal of lenses and how to handle the lenses. We offer contact lens check-ups every 6 months to ensure the lenses are still suitable and to assess the health of your eye.
