Contact lens emergencies

If you have a contact lens related emergency, for example severe pain / redness then discontinue wearing the lenses immediately, and contact us or your optician straight away

Outside of working hours seek other medical advice - for example a hospital casualty department

If in any doubt remove your lenses, and seek advice from an optician or doctor

Remember you are not usually allowed to drive or operate machines without your prescribed visual correction - we absolutely recommend that all contact lens wearers have an up to date pair of spectacles

A torn or lost contact lens is NOT an emergency - remove your lenses and contact your contact lens optician as soon as possible for advice
