Contact Lens Academy
Learning to wear contacts can take a bit of practice. Take advantage of contact lens training academy where one of our opticians will walk you step-by-step through the process of how to easily insert your contacts, how to remove them, and keep them clean. This class can go a long way in giving you the confidence to wear contacts at any age.
NOTE: Every Contact Lens wearer should have a pair of glasses to oxygenate their eye at night. When you sleep your eyelids help heal add oxygen. It's very important you give your eye a break from contacts and when you sleep it the best time.
