Eye Exams for Contact Lenses

For years, more and more people have been switching to contact lenses. Contact lens technology has evolved rapidly and with today’s variety of contact lenses, there are lenses for just about everyone. Switching from eyeglasses to contact lenses begins with an eye exam for contact lenses. After the contact lens exam comes a separate contact lens fitting session.


Do you or your kids dislike how they look in glasses? Do frames get in the way of their vision? Boost your child’s self-confidence with contact lenses! They'll enjoy the feeling of total freedom from glasses.

A Complete Eye Exam Comes First

Before being fit with contact lenses, a thorough eye exam for contact lenses is performed. In this examination, your optometrist 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. If everything looks good during your eye exam, the next step is a contact lens consultation and fitting.

What to expect during a contact lens fitting

With so many contact lens choices, the first part of the consultation is a discussion with your eye doctor about your lifestyle and preferences regarding contact lenses. Options include whether you want contact lenses that are designed to be replaced daily or those which can be worn for more extended periods. Most people choose soft contact lenses for their ease and comfort. However, there are also advantages of hard or what are called rigid gas permeable (GP) lenses. All the specifics will be discussed prior to your contact lens fitting.
