Do You Need a Contact Lens Exam?
To get the correct contact lens fitting, yes, you'll need a lens exam. When purchasing any type of eyewear, it's important to make sure that the lenses fit you and provide you with a full field of vision. Eyesight is an ever-evolving function that changes over time, with some people's eyes changing over time. It's common for a person's eyesight to get worse as they age, especially if they are diagnosed with a progressive eye disease such as macular degeneration.
What to Expect From a Contact Lens Exam
Before getting a contact lens exam, it's recommended that you undergo a comprehensive eye exam to determine where your eyesight is really at. A comprehensive eye exam usually checks for any eye conditions you are suffering from. If a diagnosis is determined, then you can move on to the next stage of eye care.
During a contact lens exam, you can expect our optometrist to measure the curve and diameter of your eyes, including your pupils and irises. After that, our eye doctor will give you a set of contact lenses to try out. During these fittings, you should be honest about any discomfort you feel and inform our doctor about how effective the lenses are. If you are new to contact lenses, our optometrist will guide you through this process, showing you how to insert contact lenses safely and hygienically. Once the fitting is done, you can move on to purchasing the right set of contact lenses for your eyes.
