Contact lens exam & fit

Contact lens exam & fit

 

Every eye is different, and we want you to have the most perfect, most comfortable fit for your eyes.

 

We have a proven process to find the perfect contact lens for you.

 

First, we do a thorough eye test, to assess:

 

  • The curvature of the cornea or front surface of your eye. We measure this with an instrument called a Keratometer.
  • The size of your pupil or your iris (the coloured area of your eye). We measure this with an instrument called a Biomicroscope or slit lamp.
  • The dryness of your eyes. One of the most common problems affecting contact lens wear is dry eyes. We’ll do a tear film evaluation to see how much moisture your eyes produce.

 

Second, after identifying which lenses work best with your eyes, we’ll let you try on a pair of lenses to confirm the fit and comfort. We’ll insert the lenses for you, and ask you to keep them in for 15-20 minutes to assess fit, movement and comfort in your eye.

 

The initial Contact Lens Exam & Fitting takes around 45 minutes.

 

We will then order in the contact lenses to your specific prescription. When they arrive instore we will show you how to insert and remove, clean and store, and advise you how long to wear them.

 

We’ll book you in for a follow-up appointment to check that your contact lenses are fitting correctly and that your eyes are adjusting properly.

Lens tinting

 

We can add anti-glare tinting to your standard plastic prescription lenses right here on site at our practice. Just request it when choosing your frames.
