You must have some sort of consultation card for insurance purposes but they are also very handy for keeping track of client details and as a reminder of what lash set your have applied previously.
This consultation card is available for you to download but please be aware that they may not be sufficient for your legal protection and you should consult your insurance company for confirmation.
Cataracts occur when there is a buildup of protein in the lens that makes it cloudy and prevents light from passing clearly through the lens, causing some loss of vision. Vision may also become cloudy, blurry or foggy.
Conjunctivitis is a common condition that causes redness and inflammation of the thin layer of tissue that covers the front of the eye causing redness, itchiness, watering eyes and sometimes a sticky coating on the eyelashes.
Glaucoma is a condition which affects vision and is caused by blockages in the eye ducts, preventing fluid from flushing effectively. This can cause pressure that in turn can damage the optic nerve and retina.
This is a condition associated with Diabetes that if left untreated can lead to blindness. High sugar levels in the blood cause vessels in the eye to become blocked or leak preventing the retina from working.
Dry Eye Syndrome
Symptoms of dry eye syndrome include dry and sore eyes that are watery and burn. Eye drops are used to treat this condition to replace the loss of lubrication.
Hypersensitive skin reacts more easily to triggers that can cause it to be more sensitive or allergic. Signs of hypersensitive skin include redness, tingling, itching and a burning sensation or tightening of the skin.
Contact Lenses should not be be worn during treatment and I also recommend that lash technicians do not wear them without protective eyewear.
Do not lash any client that has any infectious diseases. We are not medical professionals so we can not diagnose any conditions or recommend treatment. If you are ever unsure then refer your client to a doctor.
These are some of that main contraindications you will need to check for before your appointment but there are also many other conditions that you may want to add. Make sure to check with your insurer that your consultation cards meet their requirements. Below the contraindication section there is a section where they can detail what allergies they may have. It may not prevent treatment but you may have to alter what products you use. For example, if they are allergic to micropore tape you can switch to microfoam tape instead. If they suffer from asthma you would ask them where there asthma pump is and what they would like you to do should they have a reaction.
Claustrophobia is a little more difficult to deal with. They need to have their eyes shut or they could become irritated. Part of the anxiety is from them thinking that they are stuck and can't open their eyes. When I have anxious clients like this I assure them that if they feel the need to open their eyes they can but they need to let me know first. This way I can fan away the fumes. I also make them aware that if they do open their eyes it could cause the pads to slip and their eyes to water which could affect retention. I advise they try a taster set first just in case but in my experience just telling them that they are able to open their eyes puts them at ease and I've never had anyone actually ask to. Having a good salon environment can also help contribute to relaxing nervous clients.
If your client is taking HRT it doesn't necessarily contraindicate treatment but you should make sure that they are aware that as HRT affects hormonal balance in the body they may experience poor retention. Whether you should lash during pregnancy is debatable but I err on the side of caution.
