Paragon Vision Sciences, the manufacturer of our GVSS retainer lenses, has a series of short training videos on how to handle and care for your lenses.
What should I bring with me to each GVSS appointment?
Please bring all GVSS retainer lenses and solutions to each visit. Also, make sure your lenses are clean and ready to be checked. Store your lenses in Boston Simplus or Unique PH instead of Clear Care Solution when you bring them with you to your appointment.
What if I break or lose a retainer lens?
Don’t panic! This can sometimes happen during the first few months of wearing the lenses. This is why we provide an extra pair of GVSS retainer lenses with the program. All retainer lenses are under a one month warranty against breakage. If your lenses break, DO NOT DISPOSE OF THE BROKEN PIECES, YOU’LL NEED THEM TO OBTAIN PROPER CREDIT.
What should I do if I have a question before my next appointment?
One of the services we’re most proud of is the accessibility our GVSS patients have to our doctor. We understand there are many questions during the first few weeks of wearing GVSS retainer lenses, so don’t hesitate to ask!
You can always reach us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 480-361-7040.
We service North Phoenix, Carefree, North Scottsdale, Anthem and Cave Creek locations.
What if I can’t see the board during the first few weeks?
It may take up to two weeks for a new GVSS patient's vision to improve to the point of seeing very clearly from a far distance. If your child has a problem seeing the board from the back of the room, you can allow them to wear an older pair of glasses with a much weaker prescription for the first few days or the doctor may prescribe temporary daily disposable soft contact lenses until vision improves.
