GETTING USED TO YOUR CONTACT LENSES
Aftercare is a part of our service that we take seriously. We understand that getting your contact lenses is just the beginning for you, so during our aftercare appointments, we ensure that you are still getting the most out of your lenses.
During the appointment, one of our optometrists will reassess your vision and eye health, and check in with you about your level of comfort with your lenses and whether you’ve had any difficulties with your vision or the lenses themselves.
You’ll always be given the opportunity to ask for advice or discuss anything you’re not sure about, including inserting and removing your lenses and how to care and store them properly.
