Contact Lenses Overview
If you have worn lenses before
We ask you what is good about your current lenses and what you feel could be improved.
We often find that current wearers are wearing "old fashioned" hydrogel lenses. In most cases these have been superceded by silicon hydrogel designs that offer improved comfort, clarity and health therefore improving quality of life.
We will check the current contact lenses on your eye and your eye health. We may recommend a newer design of contact lens. It is also possible that your current lenses are the best available for you but you'd like us to supply them.
If you decide to change contact lens following our discussion, we'll give you a 1-2 week "free" trial to make sure everything is perfect.
If you have not worn lenses before
We'll talk to you about your lifestyle. When will contact lenses make your life easier?
We'll give you an idea of potential fee and contact lens costs.
We'll measure the shape of the front of your eye and give this information to our optometrist before they see you. They will look at the front of your eye with the biomicroscope to record baseline information. They will let you feel a contact lens on your eye and check your vision. This takes about half an hour
We'll then teach you how to apply a contact lens and how to remove it. This usually takes about 20 minutes. We'll then give you a 1-2 week "free" trial before you order your first lenses.
