What's Involved in getting contacts?
Contact Lens Fitting
Before having a contact lens fitting, you need to have had a current eye examination, preferably within the last 12 months.
Contact lens fitting involves
The fitting fee (see costs below) covers all this including lenses and solutions during the trial period, plus any extra visits required if your fitting is more complex than normal. You are under no obligation to purchase any contact lenses until you have had the trial period and are satisfied you want to proceed with contact lenses.
Regular contact lens check-ups are essential for maintaining the health and comfort of your eyes. These may be required more frequently when you get contacts for the first time, after that they are normally required every year. The optometrist will be able to give you reliable after-care advice and can help if you have any problems with your lenses.
Extended (Overnight) contact lens wear
With extended wear contact lenses there is a slightly higher risk to the eye. For this reason more frequent checks and after-cares are required.
