How do I get started?
The first step is to come in for an eye examination so that we have your up to date prescription. You can discuss options with the optometrist, and book a fitting appointment when you will be able to try the lenses.
Several visits are needed during the first three months of wear. Then aftercare is usually once or twice yearly to check vision, comfort and eye health.
My eyes are dry – can I wear contact lenses?
There are soft, moist contact lenses which can be worn by patients with mild dry eye. Sometimes the moisture of the contact lens improves comfort, and slows down evaporation of tears.
