Contact Lens Assessments
To begin your contact lens journey, you’ll need to have your eyes tested. In a contact lens assessment, an optometrist will look at the surface of your eyes, calculate or update your prescription and measure your eyes.
They will also ask you some questions about your planned contact lens use and lifestyle. Information like whether you want to use your lenses while playing sports and how often you want to dispose of them will help your optometrist make a recommendation that’s right for you.
You will also be shown how to apply and remove contact lenses safely, as this can be a little tricky for first-time users.
The Different Types Of Contact Lenses
Contact lenses come in many designs and materials in order to suit people’s different eye types and requirements. Your Optometrist or Contact Lens Optician will help you find the right contact lens to suit your needs. If you have a simple prescription, you will likely use a soft lens with daily or extended disposables available, while more complex prescriptions may require a speciality lens. We select all of our lenses to be comfortable and easy to use, so everyone can be fitted with a good option no matter your eye type or routine.
