This is an examination that allows contact lens wearers to change their contact lenses with a pair that suits them best. The 2nd appointment, a few days later, allows contact lens wearers to check whether the chosen contact lenses are perfectly adapted to their eyes and habits.

Why should I change my contact lens model regularly?

The physiology of the eye changes over time. Defects can appear, and certain environmental factors sometimes make the eye more fragile (dry indoor air, use of screens, allergies, etc.).

Remember that the eye perceives contact lenses as a foreign body. Poor care or ill-fitting contact lenses can cause discomfort or damage to the cornea. 

A contact lens check-up will ensure that the chosen model and correction are still suitable for your needs or, if necessary, that you are offered a more comfortable and better performing model from among the many that are regularly released on the market.
