Information for our Contact Lens Clients

It’s important that, although we can’t see you for routine appointments in person right now, you let us know if there are any changes to your eyes or vision. 

If the answer to any of the following questions is yes, please stop wearing your contact lenses and call us in practice for further advice.
  • Are you experiencing discomfort when wearing or removing your contact lenses?
  • Has your vision changed?
  • Are your eyes experiencing any pain, redness, discharge or light sensitivity?
  • Are you unsure how to use your contact lens solutions correctly?
  • Are you using any eyedrops that have not been recommended by your Optometrist/Eyecare professional and are not compatible with contact lenses?
  • Do you have any new medical conditions that might impact your contact lens wear?
If the answer is no, then please read the following advice to ensure you that have the best experience with your contact lenses:
  • Contact lens wear is safe, despite the recent media reports around COVID 19. The important thing is to wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, then dry with a clean hand towel, before handling your contact lenses. You should also ensure you are cleaning any reusable contact lenses as your Optometrist has advised.
  • Do not use tap water with your contact lenses.
  • Do not swim or shower in your contact lenses.
  • Do not wear your contact lenses for longer than your Optometrist has recommended.
  • Stop wearing your contact lenses and contact us should you experience any pain, redness, discharge or reduced vision.
