INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONTACT LENS WEARERS
Regardless if you wear contact lenses, please read below and sign to acknowledge receipt.
If you wear soft contact lenses, you will need to stop wearing your lenses prior to your measurement appointment.
· 5 days for standard soft contact lenses
· 14 days for astigmatism correcting soft contact lenses
If you wear RGP (rigid gas perm) lenses, you will need to stop wearing your lenses for several months prior to your surgery. You will also come into the office several times during this period for measurements of your cornea.
I understand that failure to comply with these instructions will compromise the success of my visual outcome from cataract surgery.
