Contact Lens Exam:
This exam is typically in addition to the comprehensive vision examination. You optometrist will discuss your previous experience with contact lenses, determine what improvements you are looking for and will evaluate your eyes to assess your suitability for contact lenses. The goal is first of all to ensure that wearing contacts will in no way harm your eyes. Not everyone is a good candidate for contact lenses. Your optometrist will then check the shape of your eye to help determine the correct base curve and diameter of the contact lenses required for your eyes. Based on your prescription your eye doctor may decide to use soft disposable contact lenses, toric lenses for astigmatism, bifocal lenses for improved near vision, extended wear contacts approved for sleeping in, or in some cases hard contact lenses for irregular corneas. Your examination fee usually include all your trial lenses needed to reach your clearest most comfortable vision possible. Fitting contact lenses properly is both an art and a science. You should always have your contact lenses fit by an experienced opotometrist.
