Contact Lens Instructions

Learning to apply (and remove) your lenses is very easy. Most people get the hang of it right away, and even the most nervous patient can expect to have mastered it within a week. One of our friendly contact lens technicians will teach you how to handle and care for your lenses. If desired, you may receive written instructions to refer to – and you should always call our office if you have any questions.

Getting Your Lenses

Often, our office will have your contact lenses in stock and you’ll be able to take them home the same day. If your lenses need to be ordered, you’ll usually get them within a few days.

Follow Up

Your contact lens fitting is not complete until you return for follow-up visits (sometimes for up to 3 months) so your optometrist can make sure your eyes are responding properly to the contact lenses, that you’re seeing well and that your lenses are comfortable. Then your doctor can provide you with a contact lens prescription. Thereafter, plan to have your eyes and contact lenses examined at least once per year. If you notice any changes in your vision or eyes, you should call our office right away.

Make an Appointment
