Valid contact lens prescription
You may only order contact lenses through this website if you have a valid and up-to-date contact lens prescription.
This means that you have attended all appointments and follow-up appointments as recommended by your
Optometrist. Most Optometrists advise a follow-up examination every year if you are wearing contact lenses
regularly, though it may be more or less than this depending on the lens type and wearing schedule. You are responsible for ensuring the lenses that you order match lenses as prescribed by your Optometrist. If you wish i-contacts to help check this prescription information, either enter the name of your Optometrist during check-out or reply to your order confirmation email with a scan of your prescription attached.
Contact lenses can be harmful to your eyes
You understand that using contact lenses incorrectly, or using contact lenses that are not prescribed for you, may result in harm or damage to your eyes or vision. You agree to visit your Optometrist as regularly as advised, this is normally at least once per year. If any problems occur such as pain or discomfort, you must remove your contact lenses immediately and consult your Optometrist, or eye specialist. You should never wear contact lenses if you suspect you may have an eye infection.
