contact lens guide

Contacts are suitable for all ages who live an active lifestyle, from teenagers to patients in their later years. Contact lenses are great for sport and variety of other activities, although many wearers choose to use them almost all the time. Choosing the right fit is the key to getting the best results from your contact lenses and all day comfort. 


Contact lenses change all the time and we offer the latest in contact lens technology including multi-focal contact lenses and lenses for difficult prescriptions. If you have been told previously that contact lenses are not for you, it maybe time you tried again. 


Contact lenses can help you see just as well as prescription glasses can. Contact lenses cater for a range of prescriptions, which means you are not limited to only wearing prescription glasses.


We recommend a full eye examination if you haven't had one in the past 12 months, this initial examination is covered by Medicare. Once the initial pre-assessment has been completed, and assuming your eyes are suitable for contact lenses, a fitting consultation can take place. This involves placing the lenses in your eyes, checking how well they fit, how comfortable they are, and how well you can see. 


We then progress to a lesson on insertion, removal, and lens care, and I'll ask you to return within a week or two to see whether any fine-tuning needs to be undertaken on the fitting, comfort or vision of your lenses.


On some occasions, the lenses we select for your first fitting will not be the final lens design. We may want to change the material, shape or power of the lens for optimum fitting, vision and comfort. For some patients, several return visits are required before the correct lens fitting can be determined.
