Contact lens exam

In many cases, we can fit you with contacts on the same day as your comprehensive eye exam. However, there may be times when we need to schedule a separate appointment for the exam.

During your contact lens exam, you can expect the following:

  • A thorough evaluation of your eye health and vision.
  • A discussion of your lifestyle and hobbies to help determine the most suitable lenses for your needs.
  • Measurements of your eye’s curvature and size to ensure a proper fit.
  • An evaluation of your tear film to check for dry eye disease, which can affect your ability to wear contact lenses comfortably.
  • A trial period with sample lenses to make sure you’re comfortable and happy with the fit and the vision clarity.
  • A review of proper contact lens care and maintenance to help you get the most out of your lenses.

You will also receive a contact lens prescription that designates the contact lens type, power, base curve (a shape matching the curvature of your eye), and diameter.  

Why do I need an exam for contact lenses? 

A contact lens exam allows your eye doctor to assess your eye health and determine if you’re a good candidate for contact lenses. This includes checking for any underlying eye conditions that could impact your ability to wear contacts comfortably and safely.

Contact lens exams also help your eye doctor determine the best type of contact lens for your eyes and lifestyle. With so many different types of contact lenses available, it’s important to find the one that fits your unique needs.

Additionally, these exams ensure that your contacts fit properly and that you’re wearing them correctly. Poorly fitting contacts can cause discomfort and irritation and damage your eyes. By having regular contact lens exams, you can ensure that your contacts are working properly and that your eyes remain healthy.
