There are several steps involved during an appointment for contact lens fitting. These steps are designed to check the health of your eyes and ensure that you have the best type of contact lenses for your lifestyle and eyes.
Every contact lens fitting starts with a comprehensive eye exam. During this phase of the visit, our eye doctor will examine your eyes for signs of conditions such as cataracts inflammation, certain cancers, glaucoma, and more. Of course, during the exam, our eye doctor will also check your vision. Any needed corrections will be noted so your contact lenses are the correct strength.
Once your eye exam is complete, it’s time for your contact eye exam. This process will determine if you’re a good candidate for contact lenses. Our eye doctor will check several factors to make this determination. For example, astigmatism can make wearing contact lenses difficult for some people. However, some accommodations can be made to make it easier if you do have this common eye issue.
During this phase, our optometrist will outline the different types and brands of contact lenses that she thinks are a good fit for your eyes. There are daily, weekly, biweekly, and monthly options for contact lenses.
