FAQ

Can you tell me what's wrong with my eyes?

It's not that we don't want to help you, but it would be irresponsible to try to diagnose your problem without examining your eyes.

Am I old enough to wear contact lenses?

That depends on how responsible you are; this decision is best made jointly between you, your parents and your eye doctor.
