Time for a change. Time for contact lenses.

Here’s everything you need to know before your contact lens fitting appointment.

If you don’t already have one, call your local store to book an appointment.

What to expect

Expectations-Adaptation

Adaptation period

Every new venture comes with an adaptation period. Give yourself time to get used to your contacts by slowly increasing the amount of time you wear them and follow your optician’s recommandations. If the pair is right, you won’t feel them. In fact, you’ll probably forget you’re even wearing them as you go about your day.

Expectations-Perfect-fit

Finding the perfect fit

If you feel any discomfort, don’t hesitate to let your optician know. Sometimes it takes more than one trial to find THE perfect contacts for you. That’s why we offer free samples!

Expectations-Checkup

Follow-up

Before ordering a contact lens supply, your optician will meet you for a follow-up appointment in person. This will allow your eye care professional to validate your comfort level & observe your contacts directly in your eyes to ensure that their movement and positioning are optimal.

Contact lens maintenance

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to chat online with our experts or to call your local store.
