Paragon Vision Sciences, the maker of our
GVSS retainer lenses, has a series of short video’s to help you review
how to insert, remove and care for your lenses:
What should I bring with me during each GVSS visit?
You must bring all your GVSS retainer lenses and solutions to each visit to
our office. Also, make sure your lenses are clean and ready to be checked. Lastly,
many patients have found a written list of questions is helpful so we can address
any issues that have come up since your previous visit.
What do I do if I break or lose a retainer lens?
Don’t panic! This is very common 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 warranted for one month after receiving
your lenses, against breakage. If your lenses break, DO NOT DISPOSE OF THE BROKEN
PIECES, YOU’LL NEED THEM TO OBTAIN PROPER CREDIT.
For the fastest response, you can email us at EyeProfessionals@aol.com or call our
GVSS “hotline” at 609-581-5788 X 315.
If you do not have your spare set yet, ask Drs. Tannen, Despotidis
or Lee if you can alternate between eyes until your new lens arrives. Feel free
to add this question with your email or message.
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 all our
GVSS patients have to our doctors. We understand there are many questions during
the first few weeks of wearing GVSS retainer lenses, so don’t hesitate
You can always reach us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
or by telephone at 609-581-5788 X 315. If you need an immediate response
to a medical question, you can reach any of our doctors on their private cell
numbers given to you during you initial visit to our office. Lastly, you can
call our emergency phone number, 24 hours a day, at 609-581-5755. The doctor
“on call” will be notified with your message.
What do I do, 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.
Also, you can print this letter,
asking your child’s teacher to allow them to sit in the front of the classroom.
Please email our office at email@example.com
with we can assist you in any manner.
