Optician Q&A

Do you still have questions? Ask here

My prescription is low, can I wear contact lenses?


Contact lenses today can be manufactured with virtually any lens power so yes, with a prescription as low as 0-25/+0.25, you can wear contact lenses. Nevertheless, contact lenses are a medical device and you will need to have an exam to determine your prescription and whether they are suitable for your eyes. 


If you are susceptible to dry eye syndrome or have sensitive eyes, your eyes may not be suitable for contact lenses. It is also advised to have regular contact lens exams to ensure that your lenses are always fitted with the right prescription power and you are achieving the best vision possible, however low it may be.
