Yes, you’ll be fully assessed to check if contact lenses are the best option for you.
To ensure you can wear contact lenses, our opticians will have an in-depth discussion with you to find out about your lifestyle. We’ll then examine the front structures of the eye, assess your tear film and measure your corneal curvature. This will help us find a pair of contact lenses which match your lens prescription.
You’ll then be taught how to fit put contact lenses in, then how to remove them. The process might feel unnatural at first, but we’ll give you all the time you need to feel comfortable about it.
Once this initial assessment is completed, we’ll give you a trial period with contacts then book a follow-up appointment between one and two weeks later to check on your progress.
