WHAT TYPES OF CONTACT LENSES ARE AVAILABLE?
The type of contact lenses that are most suitable for you will depend on your lifestyle, hobbies, employment and prescription.
I'VE NEVER WORN CONTACTS- WHAT DO I DO?
If you would like to try contact lenses you will need to arrange for a comprehensive eye examination and a contact lens assessment. During these examinations our optometrists will discuss various types of lenses suitable for the shape of your eye and your visual requirements.
Tarbutt Optometrists offer a complementary Contact Lens Trial Programme in conjunction with a routine vision assessment and eye health examination. Following a vision eye health examination, to establish an up to date prescription, trial contact lenses would be fitted to the eyes and normally would be worn for most of the day. At the end of this time a short appointment is made to discuss the suitability of the lenses.
Should you decide not to proceed with the contact lenses, the only cost incurred is that of the routine vision assessment and eye health examination. There is no cost for the contact lenses fitted and tried.
If you proceed with the contact lenses, the procedure is to assess the fitting and order the lenses. On arrival of the lenses there would be a teaching appointment followed by after-care appointments.
