Contact Lenses

Contact Lens Consultation

  • In order to try contact lenses you’ll need an up to date eye examination (your prescription should not be more than 1 year old). Our optometrist will carry out a comprehensive eye examination prior to your contact lens consultation if your last eye exam was more than 1 year ago.
  • Our optometrist will carry out a series of tests to confirm that your eyes are suitable for contact lenses. They will then discuss your options with you and give you their recommendations on the type of contact lenses which will suit your eyes best, answering any questions you have.
  • A pair of contact lenses will then be placed gently onto your eyes and you’ll be able to experience the amazing sensation of seeing without your glasses for the first time!
  • After the lenses have settled in your eyes, our optometrist will assess the suitability of the lenses in your eyes, and measure your vision to make sure you are seeing clearly.
  • If there are any improvements that can be made to these initial lenses the optometrist may apply further lenses, ensuring that the final lenses feel great and give you the best possible vision.
