Contact lenses at Five Dock Eyecare
Are you considering trying contact lenses? Drop into our store or book an appointment online with your local Five Dock Eyecare Optometrist and we will be more than happy to help you. Changing to contacts can be an attractive upgrade for many former glasses wearers. Many of our customers tell us that they are more convenient and give them far more confidence.
Do you currently wear contact lenses?
Can you remember when you first started wearing contact lenses? Can you remember your Optometrist teaching you how to look after them? Even if that was a long time ago, and you feel confident that you are doing everything correctly, it might be worthwhile refreshing your knowledge. Update your knowledge on the best ways keep your lenses in tip-top shape, and to make sure your eyes stay healthy. Of course, for those of you who wear daily disposable contact lenses, you don’t need to worry about cleaning and disinfecting them. Sometimes however, you might need to rinse them and you should always use a preserved saline or an aerosol saline, never fresh water.
Five Dock Eyecare recommend that you have a full eye test prior to undertaking a contact lens examination. Our professional Optometrist will assess your suitability for contacts, and if you’re suitable, will fit your eyes with the right contacts.
1: The appointment
Contact lens fitting appointments will take approx 30 minutes to assess your eyes and match different types of contact lenses suitable for your needs.
2: Caring for your contacts
Once a successful fitting lens is determined, our expert team will teach you how to care for your contacts. This includes how to use them, safety and hygiene matters, and cleaning and looking after your lenses properly.
3: After care
Regular checks called “aftercare check-ups” allow problems to be detected and corrected early. Five Dock Eyecare recommends these appointments approximately every 6 months. The schedule for consultations will be determined by your optometrist on a clinical basis to ensure we look after your eyes and contact lenses in the best possible way.
