What happens in a contact lens fit?
You will need to have had a recent eye examination or a copy of an up-to-date prescription before booking a contact lens fit. This gives the optician a good indication of which types of lenses might be advisable. During the appointment the health of your eyes and the suitability of contact lens wear will be assessed. The optician will then have a discussion with you about your expectations from contact lenses; how frequently you want to wear them, how long you want to wear them for, if you want to sleep in them, if you prefer disposable lenses etc. Measurements of your eyes will also be taken to get the best fit and comfort from your lenses.
When the trail lenses are in store, the optician will put the lenses into your eyes along with some dye to check the fit. They may then send you away to try them for 30 minutes and if you are happy with them you will be taught how to put them in and take them out safely. Don’t worry – this may take a lot of practice to get it right and we will keep trying over several appointments if necessary.
