Contact Lens Examination
Contact lens trials and aftercare appointments at Stanford Opticians are carried out by full qualified optometrists (ophthalmic opticians) or dispensing opticians with additional contact lens qualifications.
The contact lens trial assesses your suitability for contact lenses according to your lifestyle and other requirements. In most cases, you will have the opportunity to try a pair of lenses from our vast selection of diagnostic contact lenses, whether disposable lenses, which are available in daily, weekly, fortnightly, or monthly replacement schedules, or multifocal and toric lenses.
Before you take the lenses home we make sure that you can get the things in and out of your eyes and show you the correct way to care for them.
Whilst wearing contact lenses you are advised to return at frequent intervals for contact lens aftercare appointments to ensure a healthy contact lens future.
Contact lens trials cost £80.00, which covers the initial trial appointment, handling tuition, a starter kit of solutions (where necessary) and a supply of diagnostic contact lenses to have a play with at home. The contact lens trial fee also covers all the additional appointments that are needed in the first year of contact lens wear. In subsequent years you can choose the Stanford Opticians aftercare package which covers all the contact lens appointments that you need during the year, whether routine or emergency or to try some different lenses, which is £50.00 for the year, or pay per contact lens appointment at £30.00 for each visit.
