Contact Lens Exam Definition
A contact lens exam includes both a comprehensive eye exam to check your overall eye health, your general vision prescription for glasses and then a contact lens consultation and measurement to determine the proper lens fit. If you’re interested in contacts — or you already wear them and want to have your contact lens prescription updated — make sure you say so when you schedule your appointment for a comprehensive eye exam. This will ensure your exam includes extra time for your optometrist or ophthalmologist to perform additional tests needed for a proper contact lens fitting or prescription update.
Our doctors will prescribe the best contact lenses for you based on a complete eye examination and a review of your visual needs and eyewear prescriptions for both work and play. Since most people can wear more than one type of lens, it’s important to know what the choices are and the advantages and disadvantages of each.
