A contact lens consultation is an additional examination, with an additional cost. Before a patient can be fit with contact lenses, a complete medical and refractive eye examination is necessary. This exam is critical to assure your eyes are healthy enough for contact lens wear and to rule out the possibility of any unsuspected, underlying condition that may prevent contact lens use.
We use the slit lamp to assess the cornea and lids as well as the other anterior structures of your eye. We can also use the keratometer to measure the curvature of the front of your eye so, where needed, your contact lens is an exact fit. At your contact lens fitting our optometrists will assess your needs and recommend a lens most suitable for your prescription, expectations and lifestyle.
Any follow up examinations you require are included in the cost of your initial consultation. In the absence of any issues we recommend a routine contact lens check-up every 6 months. This, along with any other necessary follow up appointments throughout the year, is covered in the initial contact lens consultation fee. In this way our lens wearers can feel confident that should any issues arise they are able to have it looked at right away. At all times contact lens wearers eyes should look good, feel good and they should see well. “If in doubt, take it out!” and come in.
Contact lens prescriptions are valid for 1 year and as such during this time you may order lenses as desired. After this time has passed a refit examination would be required in order to maintain your contact lens supply.Book Your Appointment
