The prescribing of contact lenses is usually restricted to appropriately qualified eye care practitioners. The practitioner or contact lens fitter typically determines an individual's suitability for contact lenses during an eye examination.
Corneal health is verified; ocular allergies or dry eyes may affect a person's ability to successfully wear contact lenses.
Your contact lens prescription, which must be dated within the last 12 months, is a legal requirement before you purchase contact lenses.
The parameters specified in a contact lenses prescription may include:
- Material (eg. Oxygen Permeability/Transmissibility (Dk/L, Dk/t), water content, modulus)
- Base Curve (BC)
- Diameter (Diam)
- Power in dioptres - Spherical, Cylindrical and/or reading addition
- Cylinder Axis
- Centre Thickness (CT)
Your prescription may look like this:
|Right:||8.6/13.8 -2.75||Cibavision Focus Dailies|
|Left:||8.6/13.8 -3.00||Cibavision Focus Dailies|
