Contact lenses

Should you supply contact lenses that take the patient beyond her regular check-up date?


Jane Smith has worn daily disposable contact lenses for 5 years, without problem. Her last contact lens check-up was 10 months ago when she was given a contact lens specification that was valid for 12 months. Her last sight test was 2½ years ago. She works full time and finds it difficult to attend the practice for appointments and has asked that you send her another 6 months’ worth of lenses.
