What do you check for in a contact lens aftercare appointment?
Contact lens aftercare appointments are necessary to check that your contact lenses are still giving you optimum vision and comfort. Your eyes are assessed to identify if enough oxygen is getting through, if they are getting too dry or irritated and if your prescription is still strong enough for you to see clearly.
Symptoms of some eye conditions are not always noticeable on a day to day basis, so contact lens aftercare appointments can also help identify any underlying eye problems such as cataracts or glaucoma.
Conclusively, it’s for these health-related reasons that contact lens aftercare appointments are necessary – opticians cannot, by law, supply contact lenses if your details are out of date; you need to have consistent aftercare appointment to keep these details updated.
