What To Expect During Your Appointment
UNDERSTANDING YOUR NEEDS
Your Eye Care Professional will ask about your hobbies, activities and lifestyle. This is to determine which type of lenses best suit you.
Your eye health will be assessed, which includes measuring your eye power. Tests could include checking for UV damage, dry eyes, eye pressure, colour deficiency and visual acuity.
DISCUSS CONTACT LENS TYPES
Your Eye Care Professional will recommend lenses that best suit your needs. When decided, the diameter and curvature of your eye will be measured. Once fitted, your vision will be assessed once more.
LEARN WEAR & CARE FOR LENSES
You will be taught how to put in, and take out contact lenses. Don’t worry if it takes a while, your Eye Care Professional is always there to help. You will also learn how to properly care for your lenses.
