Contact Lenses

A contact lens assessment at Kingsley Opticians in Finchley Central will give you the opportunity to try contact lenses both in the consulting room and in your own environment. Your free trial lenses will allow you to fully experience the benefits of contact lenses and see how they can enhance your life.

As we are independent opticians we use lenses from many manufacturers and are not restricted to a limited range; this means that you will receive the best lenses based on your lifestyle.

As an Acuvue Centre of Excellence we often have products utilising the newest technologies in advance of other opticians. Your contact lens trial will consist of the folowing:

Initial assessment appointment

  1. Examination of the ocular surface and lids
  2. Assessment of the tear film
  3. Corneal measurements
  4. Discussion of appropriate lens types according to results of above
  5. Application of trial lenses to assess immediate tolerance (occasionally this may need to be booked as a separate appointment if trial lenses need to be specially ordered)
  6. Vision assessment with lenses
  7. Fit assessment
  8. Contact Lens handling lesson
  9. Teaching session lasting approx 20-40 minutes
  10. Lens application and removal technique
  11. Wearing instructions / lens care / cleaning where necessary
  12. Solutions and hygiene advice
  13. Contact lens 'do's and don'ts'
  14. Issue of trial lenses to take away to be worn in your own environment and trial pack of solutions where necessary
  15. After-Care appointment in Finchley Central

Lenses should be worn to this appointment (wear at least 3 hours before attending)
Review of fit and vision, refinement where necessary
If any changes are made a further appointment may be necessary which will be covered by the fee paid at the first appointment

At the end of this contact lenses consultation period we will discuss whether you prefer to wear lenses on an 'every day' or 'part-time' basis.
