Thinking of starting to wear contact lenses?

The first step is to find out about the type of lense that may be suitable for you. This depends on many factors including:

  • Your prescription
  • How often you want to wear your lenses
  • Your occupation and work environment
  • Your tear film and eye sensitivity

You need to have a full eye examination to determine your prescription and the general health of your eyes, followed by a specific contact lense fitting. During the fitting, diagnostic contact lenses are worn to check your suitability for contact lense wear. Further checks of your eyes and tear film help to assess the most suitable types of lens for your personal needs.

At our practice you are not committed to purchase lenses at your initial visit - if you decided lenses are not for you, or are advised that you are unsuitable you will simply pay for your eye examination and the initial fitting fee. with many types of lens you can try for a month with no obligation - just let us know if you don't want to continue!
