What to expect
If you’re interested in contact lenses, then “fitting” and “aftercare” appointments can be confusing. This is a quick guide as to what to expect when you decide to try contact lenses.
The Contact Lens Fitting
One of our optometrists will discuss your requirements and lens options with you; make sure your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear. We will then try some lenses on your eyes and let you experience all the benefits of contact lens wear. Following this it is important that you can insert and remove the lenses safely, and we will show you exactly how to do this. At this point we will ask for the fitting fee of £36, and make a follow-up Aftercare Appointment for one to two weeks time. The fitting fee includes:
- Fitting appointment
- Contact lens instruction
- Trial lenses
- Your first aftercare
The aftercare appointment is mandatory before we can supply you with lenses. We need to make sure you are happy with contact lens wear, and check that the lenses are still fitting well on your eyes after you have been wearing them for a period of time. We will usually need to remove the contact lenses during the appointment to look at the health of your eyes, so please bring your glasses and contact lens case with you.
Remember: Please arrive at routine aftercare appointments wearing your contact lenses.
