Most probably they only check your eye power. They don't go into checking your eye health and fitting.

If you don't ask they dont do. Its the illegal way. They assume that you don't know the law. That's the way they do business.

You caan go to any registered optometrist to get a lens fit done. There are also 3 teaching clinics to go to also. Singapore polytechnic optometry centre,west coast optometry centre and the newly opened ngee ann polytechnic optometry centry.


When going to an optom. Makke sure they conduct eye health checks,lens fitting and also consult on your need for contact lenses. Make sure he/she explains any queries that you may have. May take 30 mins or so. At teaching clinics may take 1hr +

Lastly. Opticians are NOT ALLOWED by law to prescribe/sell/teach anything related to contact lenses. They are not trained in contact lenses.

Dude. Contact lenses should be prescribed. Not bought. Don't buy lenses because they are cheap. Buy because they are suitable for you.
