      contact lens fitting

      Interested in trying contact lenses? Whether you want to have a new look, more freedom for sports and other activities or just wish to be free from glasses, contact lenses are an excellent alternative. With modern contact lens options and proper advice and care from an eye care practitioner there are few people who cannot  use contact lenses either full-time or part-time.

       
      The most common lenses we use today are soft disposable lenses which can vary from monthly, two-weekly or daily disposable. Although rigid lenses are not as popular as they used to be they are still the best choice for some people and offer excellent vision, durability and can be a more cost effective option.
       
      Trying contact lenses is easy. It begins with a comprehensive eye examination including the front of the eye and eyelids. Measurements are taken of the shape of the cornea and a lens is then placed onto the eye to fit this shape and properly correct the vision. After a few minutes we encourage people to go outside to walk around and enjoy the new found freedom that contact lenses offer.
       
      Once the lenses have settled we will assess the fit, the vision and of course how you feel about the lenses. From all of that we are able to order the correct lenses to suit the shape of your eyes and prescription.
