Contact Lens Examination

If you wear or want contacts, you need a contact lens exam in addition to a comprehensive eye exam. We will perform special tests during a contact lens exam to evaluate your vision with contacts. The first test will measure your eye surface to determine what size and type of contacts are best for you. We may also do a tear film evaluation to make sure you have enough tears to comfortably wear contacts.

With the results of those tests, we’ll provide a contact lens prescription that is the right fit for your eyes. A standard examination is no substitute for a contact lens exam because the two are very different. Once you have the correct fit and prescription for contacts, you’ll need to decide whether you want disposable contacts or extended wear.We will fit you with a trial pair of contacts and have you wear them for a few days before starting a longer term prescription.
