Contact lenses are medical devices. In other words, they can cause a moderate risk to eye health when used without appropriate physician examination. Contact lens evaluation is necessary for anyone who wishes to wear contacts or continue wearing contact lenses.
Contact lens examination, or contact lens fitting, begins with a thorough eye exam. This will ensure an up-to-date prescription and rule out any pre-existing conditions that may prevent contact lens wear.
Our doctor will require to follow up the initial fitting to see how well your eyes are adjusting to the lenses or make any necessary changes in fitting or materials to provide you with the utmost possible fit. We educate our patients about proper contact lens care and also possible consequences if proper care is not taken. Looking ahead, we continue with long-term follow-up to monitor the condition of the lenses and to ensure that proper hygiene is being practiced.
During the contact lens exam, if you are a contact wearer, it will begin by wearing the patient’s current contact lenses. This allows the Doctor to analyze how the eyes are functioning with the current contact fit and prescription being used.
We offer a wide selection of contact lenses such as; daily, weekly, biweekly, monthly disposables, or specialty contact lenses to fit each patients’ needs.
Following the initial adjustment period, many contact lens wearers find their contacts to be extremely comfortable for day-to-day wear, so much, that they do not realize they are wearing them throughout the day!
