What is a Contact Lens Exam and how does it work?

Before you are fitted with contact lenses, a comprehensive eye exam needs to be performed ensuring that your eyes are healthy and that we have the best and most up to date prescription.

If all looks good during your eye exam, the doctor then does a contact lens evaluation to make sure contact lenses will work for you and your prescription. The prescription for contact lenses is based on a couple things: the glasses prescription from your eye exam and the shape of your eyes. The doctor collaborates with you to make sure that your new contact lenses work best for your lifestyle and preference.

First time wearing contact lenses?

Don’t sweat it! We will do our best to make sure the process is as easy for you as possible!
We spend a lot more time with you because there are more tests and training involved. First, we go through the Contact Lens Exam. After the doctor ensures that you’re a great candidate, they’ll place the contact lenses on you for the first time, making sure that you see clearly, and then set some proper expectations. Then you’ll go through training and see one of our awesome Opticians where they’ll train you on how to put them in and take them out. Lastly, it’s all about education. We teach you how to care for your new contacts, cleaning, and things to watch out for. Sometimes it’s a bit overwhelming, but we’re here for you and will help you through it.

We want to make sure that we prescribe the best contacts that give you the most comfort and the best vision that we include complimentary follow up visits for three months following your exam.
