I continue to get enquiries from members of the public who are convinced that their optometrist is trying to make a fast buck out of them by telling them that they must have a contact lens check-up before they can supply them with more contact lenses. Whether this is true or not depends upon what the expiry date of the patient’s contact lens specification is.
