What to Expect in a Contact Lens Fitting
If you are being fitted for contact lenses for the first time, you can expect several procedures that aren’t performed during a routine eye exam. To ensure good eye health and contact lens comfort it is important to accurately measure the curvature and size of your eyes. Using the latest technology, our optometrists will take these measurements and choose the appropriate lens.
In addition, we also evaluate the tear film on the front of your eyes. Some people don’t have the tear production necessary to keep their eyes moist with contact lenses. This will allow us to determine if your eyes can handle wearing contact lenses, or if we need to use a special lens for dry eyes.
Our doctors have the necessary knowledge and patience to make your contact lens fitting a success. If you are interested in wearing contacts for the first time, or need a new prescription, contact our offices to schedule an appointment now!
