Why Do You Need A Proper Soft Contact Lens Consultation?


Dr Carina Trinh is a proud member of the Cornea & Contact Lens Society of Australia (CCLSA) and Orthokeratology Society of Oceania (OSO). This enables her to keep up to date with the latest and greatest in contact lens technology so that she can better serve her patients to provide them with comfortable and clear vision.


Soft contact lens technology is rapidly evolving with new products being released several times a year. Pretty much all prescriptions are available in contact lenses these days, however, an experienced practitioner is required to present suitable options to the patient.


New technologies aim to improve both comfort and vision through contact lenses. Patients are often surprised when I tell them that contact lenses are actually suitable for their prescriptions.
