When buying contact lenses, many of us only know our power/grade, and then we buy a box of 1-Day Acuvue Moist because that's what Susan from Accounting recommended yesterday during lunch.
The truth is that contact lens prescriptions and spectacle prescriptions are not the same, and one of the reasons is because contact lens prescriptions contain base curve and diameter values, which affect how the contact lens sits on your eye.
Click on any of the buttons below to see what happens when you wear contact lenses with the wrong base curve.
We hope that gives you a better insight on why we always emphasize the need to ask an eye doctor which contact lenses are suitable for your eyes before purchasing them from us. We would love to have your business, but your safety when wearing contact lenses is even more important to us. If you already have your prescription, well done! You can learn how to read it here or head over to our shop to start shopping. If not, you know what to do: find an optician!
