Prescribing contact lenses

Contact lenses are prescribed at our stores by experienced and helpful optometrists and ophthalmologists.

Before you buy your first pair of contacts lenses, be sure to make an appointment with an optometrists or an ophthalmologist to have your eyes checked. Please do so even if you are already wearing spectacles.

As an eye exam for the prescription of spectacles is different from that for prescribing contact lenses, the former is insufficient if you need to buy contact lenses.

We will consult you on how the contact lenses should be fitted and worn. We will help you choose the right size and type of contact lenses to meet your particular needs, so that the lenses are comfortable and do not impair your eyes’ health.

The following actions are performed when contact lenses are prescribed for the first time:

  • the overall health of your eyes is determined
  • the degree of cornea curvature is measured
  • the condition of the mucous membrane is ascertained
  • tear production is checked
  • additional tests are performed if necessary
  • detailed instructions are provided on how to handle contact lenses

Once you have started wearing contact lenses, you should have your eyes checked again at least once a yearso that our specialists can assess their health and possible changes that may occur as a result of constantly wearing contact lenses.

Please remove your contact lenses at least four hours prior to your scheduled eye exam.

To ensure that you receive the best possible service, please book your eye exam appointment in advance.
