Contact Lens Warning
Measurements of one’s natural corneal shape is critical in the pre-operative calculations used to perform cataract surgery. Since contact lenses rest directly on the cornea, the cornea’s natural shape will, over time, conform to the shape of the contact lens itself. Therefore, when pre-operative measurements for cataract surgery are performed immediately after a contact lens is removed from one’s eye, such measurements will not be accurate because the natural corneal shape has been altered by the contact lens. As a general rule, before your appointment, you should:
- Discontinue soft contact lens use 1-2 weeks prior to your visit.
- Discontinue hard contact lens use 2-3 weeks prior to your visit.
