Assessment and Eligibility

ASSESSMENT PROCESS


For your assessment:
• Allow 1 hour of your time
• Wear your spectacles
• Leave your soft contact lenses out for at least 3-4 days prior
• Leave RGP/hard contacts/Ortho-K lenses out for at least 2-3 weeks prior
• Bring sunglasses: your eyes will be sensitive to the light and glare
• DO NOT DRIVE after the assessment as your pupils will be dilated

During the assessment we use eye drops which will dilate your pupils. This effect can last up to 24 hours. Reading vision will be blurry for 3-4 hours. 

Contact lenses make the results inaccurate, so it’s important to follow the above guide.
