Frequently Asked Questions About Prescription Contact Lenses
Are you considering getting contact lenses? If so, you’re not alone. Contact lens use has been on the rise over the past three decades, with about one in four people in Australia now wearing them. More than ever, people want to know if contacts are safe, how they work, and how to wear them correctly. With these common questions, we’ve compiled the answers you need to know.
There are different types of contact lenses your Optometrist could prescribe to you.
- Disposable contact lenses
- Toric Contact Lenses
- Soft Contact Lenses
- Coloured Contact Lenses
- Extended Wear Contact Lenses
- Silicone Hydrogel Contacts
- Multifocal Contact Lenses
There are many contact lens brands. During your comprehensive eye exams, your Mandurah optometrist can go over which type of contact lense is the best for you. A friend may have told you what their favourite contact lens is, but all contact lens types feel different to everyone. However, with a huge selection of contacts on the market, you can be sure that you will find a pair that will fit your eyes perfectly.
An example of this is toric lenses, which are often used for astigmatism. If your friend has astigmatism, but you do not, this type of lens may not be for you. Your Optometrist will discuss the range of contact lenses you can pick from and find the ideal pair for you.
When you purchase contact lenses, they will be custom-made for your eyes. We consider various factors, including your eye structure, tears, and visual acuity, to determine what type of lens material, your replacement schedule, and what brand will be the best for your eyes.
That is why it is essential to look for the best optometry practices in your surrounding area to be sure that you are fitted for the correct type of contact lenses.
Even if you are only interested in a temporary contact lens, such as a colour lens or an effect lens, you will still need to schedule an appointment with your optometrist as only an eye care provider can fit contacts.
Our Mandurah Optometrist can assess your needs, prescribe the correct size, shape, and recommend the very best brand to achieve the perfect vision you seek.
We also provide assistance in answering any questions you may have, so please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.

If you have an up to date Contact Lens prescription, you can buy them on line. However, contact lenses are prosthetic medical devices and should be treated as such and prescribed and monitored under proper Optometric care.
No, they are usually different.
There are many different replacement schedules. Some lenses are intended to be replaced daily, some fortnightly and others monthly.
It is usually advisable to have both. Each are better in certain circumstances. If for instance you were suffering from an eye infection or allergy, you would need to have spectacles to fall back on while your eyes recovered.
