Help and frequently asked questions

Will the optometrist touch my eye during an eye examination?

Answer: 

Although the optometrist will get very close to your eye, they will not touch your eye directly, except for some specialised tests which are not routinely performed. The optometrist will touch your eyelids, though, in a contact lens check up.
