Take advantage of our five-step analysis system for a thorough contact lens evaluation.  Now is the time to care and assure your eye health and safety. We recommend an annual contact lens evaluation which includes:

  1. In depth health and tear analysis of the cornea with measurements of corneal topography.
  2. Analysis of measurements to select the best lens for the patients needs, based on the latest advances in contact lenses.
  3. Evaluation of the fit on the eye for comfort, optimum health and vision stability.
  4. Performing an over-refraction with contacts in the eyes to find the most accurate prescription for the best vision.
  5. Follow-up checks as needed to reassess the fit and the power after contact lens settling, and follow-ups as needed for problems within 30 days of the original fit.

What is involved in a contact lens fitting?

In this exam, your eye doctor determines your prescription for corrective lenses (just a glasses prescription at this point) and checks for any eye health problems or other issues that may interfere with successful contact lens wear.

How long does it take to get used to wearing contacts?

Many people take longer to get used to rigid contacts than to soft. It will probably take about 2 weeks to become accustomed to these lenses but could take 3 weeks or more. You can ease into wearing them by starting at just a few hours of wear per day and increasing by an hour each day.

How long is it safe to wear contact lenses?

Conventional soft contacts can last up to a year; conventional rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses can last even longer. Frequent or planned replacement contact lenses last one to several months. Disposable contacts last from one day (daily wear) to up to two weeks (extended wear).

How is a contact lens exam different?

With the results of those tests, your eye doctor can provide a contact lens prescription that is the right fit for your eyes. An eyeglass prescription is no substitute for a contact lens exam because the two are very different. An improper fitting or prescription of contacts can damage the health of the eyes.

Do you need to be fitted for contact lenses?

Yes, contacts come in a variety of sizes, and the doctor will need to measure your eyes to get the right fit. The size will also depend on the type of lenses you want.
