Contact Lenses Offered by our Texas City Optometrist
Contact lenses are a popular option for patients who do not want to wear eyeglasses. At Texas City Eye Consultants, we provide contacts lens exams and a variety of contact lens options to help patients maintain optimal vision.
What is a Contact Lens Exam?
A contact lens exam is actually different than your normal eye exam. If you are scheduling an exam, be sure to let your optometrist know if you are specifically interested in a contact lens exam. During a contact lens exam, your optometrist will not only determine your prescription, but determine the type and size of your contact lenses.
Contact lenses do not all fit the same. They come in different sizes and wearing the wrong size can harm your eyes and vision. Our optometrist will measure your eyes to make sure your contacts will fit properly and comfortably. An optometrist will also determine the type of lenses you need. Certain eye conditions make require you to wear a specific type of lens. With a contact lens exam, your optometrist examines your eyes, review your eye health history, and can determine if you have any conditions that may require a special type of lens.
