A thorough eye exam will be performed at your consultation. To prepare for your consultation please make sure you have been out of your contact lenses for the following amounts of time:

  • Soft contact lenses - at least two weeks

  • •Gas permeable contact lenses - at least three weeks

If you are not sure which type of contact lens you wear, contact your optometrist or Geisinger’s Department of Ophthalmology at 570-275-6401.
