Fitting and Aftercare
Contact lenses offer a whole new dimension to correcting your eyesight. Different lens types can be combined to fulfil your needs. If you are new to contact lenses, an existing wearer or a lapsed wearer, recent developments may fulfil your requirements better than in the past. Why not pop in or give us a call to discuss your needs? A free and no obligation “suitability to contact lens” discussion can be organised with our Optometrist, who can advise what options are available specifically for you.
New wearers will be carefully assessed to ascertain their suitability for contact lenses. This involves detailed examination of the front structures of the eye, assessment of your tear film, measurements of your corneal curvature. We will then discuss which contact lenses will be most suited to your prescription, your eyes and your lifestyle. You will be taught by the Optometrist how to insert and remove your contact lenses and cleaning procedures will be demonstrated. Once the best lenses for you have been found you will be given a trial period with them to see how you get on in your everyday life. A follow-up appointment will be booked 1-2 weeks later to check on your progress.
Regular aftercare appointments are important to current and new contact lens wearers. They help to ensure you maintain maximum comfort, health and vision out of your contact lenses. We will always aim to fit you with the best lenses for your eyes and will keep you up-to-date with new developments. Aftercare appointments are usually recommended at 6 to 12 month intervals but with our EYEPLAN scheme you can have as many as you like!
