What to Expect

Clients who want to get fitted for contacts must have had an eye exam within the last 6 months or get an updated one. Our doctors will then assess your eyes to determine which type of lenses match your prescription and day-to-day needs. This may mean undergoing a few trials to check if the contacts fit your eyes.

If you’ve worn contacts before, we recommend bringing in your old records or boxes when you are a new contact fit with us. Meanwhile, new contact wearers should expect an extra hour for their appointment as they will be taught to wear and remove the lenses.
