What to Expect During Your Contact Lens Fitting Exam

A contact lens exam goes into more depth than a standard eye exam. In addition to determining the health of your eyes, this exam assess the the size, shape, and curvature of your eye in greater depth.

Proper fitting evaluation is key for comfortable contacts, so we take the time needed to ensure accurate measurements are taken.

Assessing Your Eye Health – People with certain eye conditions, such as dry eye syndrome, may not be ideal candidates for contact lenses. This is due to discomfort and potential eye health concerns. During the exam and fitting, we will ensure your eye health is suitable for contact lenses.
