Do I need to leave my contact lenses out prior to laser eye surgery?

Yes. Contact lenses may distort the outer window of the eye known as the cornea and lead to inaccurate measurements and treatments. Soft lenses must be taken out and left out one week prior to treatment. Hard/GP lenses must be removed for a longer period, typically one month prior to treatment. This can however increase depending on the length of time the lenses have been worn. Our Specialist Refractive Optometrist will be able to best advise you prior to treatment.
