CONTACT LENS FITTING
A routine eye exam is not the same as a contact lens exam. For contact lens wearers, this check is necessary to ensure the lenses are fitting both eyes properly and that the health of the eyes is not harmed by the contact lenses.
We will perform a series of simple tests during a contact lens exam to evaluate your vision with contacts.
Our optometrist may also do a tear film evaluation to make sure you have enough tears to comfortably wear contacts.
With the results of these tests, your Optometrist can provide a contact lens prescription that is the right fit for your eyes. An improper fitting or prescription of contacts can damage the health of the eyes.
Whether you wear spectacles or contacts, it is a good idea to get a yearly eye exam to see if you have new or existing vision problems, and if you need vision correction.
