Just wondering, is candylens better or pinkyparadise? Wanna order geo lens!
dude. You don't just simply order lenses. They are prescribed. You only do that if you're prepared to lose your sight.

Anywhere that has an optometrist.
They are required by law to do the following as listed in the link provided.

They have the right to charge for it too. Don't expect free check because you'll just get yourself fked

I am pretty sure most of them do not have the equipment to do what is being described in page 17. I know most of the listed tests cos I just did a cataract procedure and the eye doctor did all those mentioned tests before the procedure.

You are wrong then. They must have minimum a slit lamp, k meter for contact lens practice. If not they've pretty much f themselves up when an enforcing officer pops by their shop.
Though u did those before the cataract surgery, there are many different kinds of machines in the market to do the same tests. So you wouldn't know if they have done the tests unless u see the results.

by right you should go to an optometrist for aftercare after starting on a type of lens care to see if their are any effects on your cornea caused by the solution. it is normal to feel that the lenses are oily because its a multipurpose solution afterall. you can try rinsing the lenses with normal saline before wearing them if you find the MPS irritating for your eyes.

I cannot advice you on the effects of the solution as you must be followed up with an aftercare because i need to see if there is any adverse effects on the cornea cells. during soaking of the lenses, soft lenses will absorb the MPS into the lens material and would be released into the eye during lens wear and some people may develop some changes on their cornea.

No you can't until your infection clears. U dun have to go to an eye doctor for follow up. Just follow up at an optom. He can check if ur infection is cleared alrdy or not.

Hi guys, happened to chance upon this thread.. and learned quite a few things o.O

I've been wearing contact lenses for quite some time now. The first time i got mine was about few years back. The optom (or maybe optician?!) did look at my eye through the eye slit machine thingy, bright lights and stuff, and let me test quite a the lenses, and gave me quite a tutorial about wearing lenses.
So far I'm fortunate enough to not have any infection, except for this one time my eye swelled due to a sty or something (prob cos I skipped some proper care in Ns... Learned the hard way...). I went to SNEC that time, but the follow-up didn't seem to be as detailed as what was described here, mainly just looking through the eye machine.
However, reading up on all the previous posts, I was wondering if i should go to SP or RP or a hospital/specialist for a full eye health check up, as I would be going overseas soon and was thinking of getting a new stock of contact lenses ( maybe dailies).

Lol sorry for long post. I would just like to know if I should go for the full check at this point of time, and where should I go for it. Thanks!

everyone should go for a full eye check every 6mth-2 years depending on age, risks and own initiative.
