Contact Lens Consultation and Fitting
Looking to make the transition from glasses to contact lenses? Whether you plan to wear them regularly, while playing sports or only on special occasions, it’s important to get contact lenses that fit comfortably. With our contact lens consultation and fitting services, our experienced optometrists will help you find the best contact lenses for you, your lifestyle and your eyes.
What is a contact lens fitting?
Are you considering trying contact lenses for the first time or looking to get an expert opinion? A contact lens fitting is a great way to test out a range of options and brands to determine the best contact lenses for your eyes. We offer a contact lens fitting service for adults and children as young as 6. As part of this, we offer an initial consultation, as well as continued aftercare. Thanks to our experienced optometrists, we have a 100% success rate on our contact lens fittings.
Your contact lens consultation
An initial contact lens consultation lasts approximately 40 mins. During this time, we’ll teach you how to properly insert and remove your contact lenses. You can then attend ongoing half-hour appointments until you're able to insert and remove them yourself with confidence. You can also take the contact lenses home to try for five days. As you test out your new lenses, regular aftercare appointments are also recommended.
Types of contact lenses
We offer a range of contact lenses to suit your eyes and lifestyle. Some of the top brands we carry include Acuvue, Alcon, Coopervision and B&L. We also carry specialist contact lenses such as lenses for people who experience keratoconus. We offer RGP (rigid gas permeable) lenses that help your eyes ‘breathe’ better. We offer daily disposables, 2-weekly or monthly lenses, toric lenses and multifocal lenses, so that whatever your lifestyle, you can wear convenient lenses. After discussing your eye needs and lifestyle, we’ll recommend what we think is the best fit for you.
