So how long do I need to keep my lenses out for?
We ask you that you keep your lenses out prior to your initial consultation. If you wear soft lenses, it means no lenses for 1 week. For rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses it’s 2 weeks. Hard (PMMA) lenses need to be removed for 4 weeks.
When it comes to your surgery date, we ask that you leave out your soft lenses that day and the day before. For RGP or hard lenses 1 week without lenses leading up to the day of your surgery is required.
