The Initial Consultation

Whichever lens you are interested in, we would carry out a consultation which will take at least 30-45 minutes where we will assess the health and condition of everything from the tips of the lashes to the iris,  looking at the quality and quantity of the tear film (the main support for the contact lens), the shape and condition of the lids and the size and health of the cornea. To do this we use a biomicroscope (slit lamp) with various coloured dyes to help show us the general well being of the front of the eye. We would then measure the shape of the eye using a Corneal Topographer, which is so accurate we can design lenses from this data. All this information is then used along with our talk with you about what you want and expect from lenses, what sort of work you do, the environment at work, your hobbies and general health etc, to help us decide what lenses to recommend for you and to give you trial lenses which, in most cases, will be free of charge.

 
 

Post Laser / Corneal Surgery

Sometimes refractive laser surgery (such as LASIK or PRK) can leave complications which cannot be improved by further surgery. These changes could mean that the cornea becomes irregular in shape. With the equipment that we have such irregular shapes are easy to map and understand. We can then design lenses to fit and have three different software programs to help us. In such instances specially designed contact lenses can be fitted which may improve the quality of vision as well as 'top up' the prescription. If you require more information please contact us as every case is unique.
