What does a Contact Lens Fitting Appointment Involve?

It all starts with us checking your prescription. Then we measure precisely the shape, size and curvature of your eye, we assess corneal dryness and discuss specific requirements to determine the most suitable lenses for you.

We’ll show you how to fit them and ensure you are confident inserting and removing them before giving you your contact lenses home for a free trial period. After which we complete a thorough contact lens checkup to assess the effects of the lenses to your eyes.
