We can do all contactlens exams in a safe way. Please make an appointment for the test so we have enough time for you and the next costumer to make sure the machines are properly cleaned.
New to Amsterdam ? We can help you with your lenses. We can test the lenses you're wearing. We need al the information about the lenses before we test. That means: the type of lens, the prescription, diameter and the shape. If you don't have that we do not test them.
A new fitting for contact lenses is € 45.-
If you buy your lenses at the drugstore we don't take responsibility for that so we don't test those. AT THIS MOMENT WE DON'T DO CONTACTLENSCHECKS IF YOU DIDN'T BUY YOUR LENSES FROM US AND WILL NOT DO SO AFTER THE TEST.
Never wore contact lenses?
Patients who would like to have contact lenses for the first time or those who failed with contact lenses in the past will need an initial appointment, which includes a full eye examination and a contact lens suitability assessment. We will do special measurements such as mapping the shape of your cornea with high precision digital topography. We will discuss what the most appropriate type of contact lenses for you and your lifestyle is most suitable.
Soft contact lenses are made from soft, flexible materials hydro gels. Most clients like wearing them since these lenses are very comfortable. They are relatively simple to fit. Sof contact lenses are available in a variety of designs and materials. You may want to try daily lenses, monthly lenses or bi-weekly soft contact lenses. You replace them regularly, anything from daily to annually.
Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) contact lenses are custom made for every eye and are fitted with a high level of precision. Because of their rigidity, they provide excellent vision and will correct corneal irregularities such as regular and irregular corneal astigmatism.
