Contact Lenses

 

Aftercare

It is essential that all contact lens wearers receive regular contact lens check-ups (aftercare) to ensure minimum risk of complications.

Following a successful trial/fitting, we strongly recommend that you join one of our aftercare schemes (Premier or Standard). These schemes have been introduced to provide members with a comprehensive level of clinical benefits ensuring their future safety, comfort and quality of vision. In addition they entitle members to substantial discounts off contact lenses and many other purchases.

How do our prices compare with buying Contact Lenses from Supermarkets or the Internet?
We have designed our aftercare schemes to ensure that our lens prices are very competitive even when compared with supermarkets and the Internet. In addition we offer the facility to replace damaged or lost lenses (a facility which these sources do not provide).

Remember also that if you have any concerns with your lenses or ever suffer irritation with your eyes you will always be welcome to attend for an appointment (and will be seen on the same day in the case of an emergency) - remote suppliers cannot provide this service.   

What are the risks of Contact lens wear?
The risk of any complications or eye infections as a result of contact lens wear is extremely low and is usually the result of poor hygiene. Risk is also increased for smokers and for wearers who sleep or swim with their lenses in. Your chance of developing a problem can be reduced by following some simple golden rules:

- Visit us regularly for check-ups
- Clean and disinfect your lenses exactly as advised
- Ensure your hands are clean when handling your lenses
- Replace your lenses regularly as directed
- Never rinse your lenses with tap water
- Don’t sleep in lenses
- Don’t swim with contact lenses unless you are wearing watertight goggles
- Don’t wear your lenses if you are suffering from a heavy cold or flu
- Replace your lens case at least every 3 months 

 

What to do in an emergency?

If your eyes are sore or red or your vision is blurry, remove your lenses as soon as possible and contact the practice.

If in doubt - take them out...!

If it's outside normal practice hours and your eyes are still painful several hours after removal of your lenses, Corry and Christie patients can phone our 24 hour emergency numbers:
