Contact lens adaptation
Contact lenses are medical devices, so you will need a prescription to buy them and your specialist should make sure that the test you have been done to prescribe the use of contact lenses includes the adaptation of the lenses. In order to adapt contact lenses, consultation and measurement are required.
The specialist will ask about your lifestyle and preferences. Some contact lenses may be better for athletes with active lifestyles, for example, while others are more suitable for people who travel frequently and may occasionally need to sleep with their glasses on. Your specialist will also ask if you prefer to use colored contact lenses or disposable lenses.
