What Is a Contact Lens Exam?
As the name suggests, a contact lens exam is a vision exam done to determine if you'd benefit from contact lenses, and to determine the right prescription for your contact lenses.
Contact lenses are ideal for people that are suffering from a refractive error of the eyes. These refractive errors may include:
- Myopia, or nearsightedness
- Hyperopia, or farsightedness
- Astigmatism, which is a misshapen cornea or lens
Contact lenses can help correct vision disorders from these conditions by focusing light properly and producing a clearer image. However, in order to be effective, contact lenses need to be the right size. A contact lens exam can help determine the right prescription for these lenses, and inform you of any other eye diseases that might be impacting your vision.
Eye Care From an Optometrist at Our Optometry Practice
An optometrist on our team can determine if contact lenses are right for you, take a deeper look at the structure of your eye, and determine what prescription you need. He or she can inform you of other treatment options, such as possible eye surgery or eye glasses, if contact lenses aren't the best fit for you.
In addition, an optometrist on our optometry team can also help pair you with specialty contact lenses, such as hybrid, gas permeable, or scleral lenses, to help improve your vision and improve symptoms of eye diseases.
