How Can I Get Contact Lenses?
Switching to contact lenses is easy! The process starts with a contact lens eye exam, which includes everything you get in a regular eye exam—plus a few extra considerations.
Once the standard portion of the exam is complete, our eye doctors will ask you some simple questions about your lifestyle and medical needs. By reviewing your answers to these questions and the results from your test, we can determine:
- Whether you would be more comfortable with extended wear lenses or daily disposables.
- The best type of contact lenses for your eyes.
- Whether you have medical considerations (such as astigmatism or dry eye syndrome) that might require specific lenses.
Whether you have vision problems (such as presbyopia) that might require a particular type of lens.
What Happens After My Contact Lens Exam?
After your contact lens exam is over, we’ll perform a contact lens fitting where we measure:
- The size of your pupil
- The size of your iris
- The curve of your cornea
- The stability of your tear film
These factors help us recommend contacts that will correct your vision comfortably. We then supply you with trial lenses and supervise you for a brief period while you wear them.
If you’re happy with the way the trial lenses fit and function, we place an order on your behalf and teach you how to take care of them. We’ll also schedule follow-up appointments as needed to make sure your new contacts are performing as intended.
