Getting started with contact lenses
The first step towards wearing contact lenses is to make an appointment for an eye examination with one of our optometrists. Here we’ll assess the overall health of your eyes, test your vision, do some contact lens measurements and explain the various contact lens options. You’ll also get a good insight into wearing contact lenses, which ones will be best suited to your lifestyle and how much it costs.
Fitting your contact lenses
The fitting of your lenses usually involves more than one appointment, as we want to be sure you are 100% happy with how comfortable they feel and to check how well your eyes are tolerating the lenses. We’ll talk to you about your experience of wearing contact lenses and help resolve any ‘teething’ issues you might have.
Learning how to use your contact lenses
If you’ve never worn contact lenses before, it’s quite natural to feel a little nervous about using them. Don’t worry, we’re here to help. We’ll take time to carefully demonstrate how to insert and remove your lenses, how to handle them and take care of them, so you’ll feel confident right from the start.
Below you’ll see two instructional videos which will also help you with inserting and taking out your contact lenses.
Keeping in touch
It’s important that you enjoy the freedom of contact lenses without any problems. That’s why we always schedule a few free follow up appointments for you to come in and tell us how things are going.
