Your doctor may schedule a follow-up visit so he can confirm the lenses you chose are fitting your eyes properly and that your eyes are able to tolerate contact lens wear. A dye may be used to see if the lenses are causing damage to your cornea or making your eyes become too dry.
It is rare these days that contact lenses cause problems. But, with a follow up contact lens eye exam, your doctor will be able to detect any issues before they become big problems. Most problems that occur can be rectified by things such as trying different lenses or lens material, using a different lens care method, or adjusting your contact lens wearing time.
At the follow-up appointments we will ensure that your contact lenses are still a healthy option for you, make sure your contact lenses are still maximizing your needs and update your contact lenses or care system.
