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.

Types of Contact Lenses

The types of contact lenses available for your vision depend on your needs and lifestyle. We offer a variety of lenses to help with your vision goals including:

  • Daily wear lenses, which you remove each night
  • Disposable lenses, which you wear one time and then replace
  • Extended wear lenses, which allow you to wear them overnight for seven days
  • Hard to fit lenses, which help when you have specific concerns like astigmatism in your eyes
  • Toric lenses or multifocal lenses, which contain different powers in the lens to correct for things like astigmatism, myopia, or hyperopia
  • Specialty lenses, such as colored lenses

In additions to types of contacts, your optometrist will discuss different materials to help you find a comfortable pair. Let your doctor know if you experience symptoms like dry eye or eye allergies You can choose between soft lenses, gas permeable lenses silicone hydrogel lenses or any other materials that feel comfortable for your eyes.
