CONTACT LENS CONSULATION

Modern technological advances mean that the contact lens options available to you now are vast and varied. New developments in their design and materials make them very comfortable, convenient to use and affordable. Contact lenses offer a convenient alternative to spectacles for occasional or everyday use helping people of all ages to see clearly.

They offer excellent all round vision as they rest on the eye surface meaning there is nothing on the face allowing a weightless form of correction. They can be particularly useful for times when spectacles may not be as practical, for example, during sporting activities, or even in adverse weather conditions.

WHAT'S 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 to 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.
