Will the optician touch my eye during an eye examination?

Answer: 

Although your optician will get very close to your eye, they will not touch your eye directly.

There are some specialised tests that involve touching the eye but they are not routinely performed.

Your optician will touch your eyelids, however, during a contact lens check up.
