Experience in store just how easy it is to wear contact lenses. Our optometrists will assess your suitability for contacts, and if you’re suitable will fit your eyes with contacts*.
Contact Lens Fitting appointments* will take approx 30 minutes to comprehensively assess your eyes and match different types of contact lenses suitable for your eyes and your needs. (Occasionally extra consultations may be required to find the best contact lens type and fitting, depending on your needs and prescription complexity).
Once a successful fitting lens is determined, we will teach you about caring for your contacts, how to use them and discuss safety and hygiene matters with you including cleaning and looking after your lenses properly. This may require additional appointments.
Regular checks called “aftercare check-ups” allow problems to be detected and corrected early. Most optometrists recommend these every 6 months, but always the schedule for consultations will be determined by your optometrist on a clinical basis to ensure we look after your eyes and contact lenses in the best possible way.
