Regular eye examinations are an important part of you healthcare. It is suggested to have one every 2 years, unless otherwise advised, and it is recommended for children to have an examination once a year. Eye tests not only check your level of sight, but are important to identify any conditions at an early stage.
Contact and Scleral Lens Dispensing
The use of scleral or contact lenses may be recommended after the eye examination. There is a range of contact lenses available: Rigid Gas Permable Corneal Lenses (RGPC), hydrogel (soft) lenses, bifocal or lenses for astigmatism. The correct option for you will be explained. If the results from the examination are more complicated, it may be necessary to discuss making you scleral lenses, each are uniquely made to fit the shape of your eye. Scleral lenses have benefited a huge number of people in the 30 years we have been established.
Another regular option after the sight test is the prescription of glasses, which may be needed for a variety of reasons such as long or short distance correction, reading or to alternate with your contact lenses. The frames are always individually fitted to ensure they are comfortable and worn correctly.
