Eye Exam vs. Contact Lens Exam: What's the Difference?
One of the most common misconceptions people have about contact lens exams is that they're one-in-the-same as a comprehensive eye exam. In reality, the two are quite different, so we recommend a contact lens exam even if you recently had an eye and vision exam in our office.
Specifically, an eye exam is a more general assessment of your eyes and vision. A contact lens exam involves taking specific measurements of the eyes to check for underlying conditions that may affect your ability to wear contact lenses comfortably. During a contact lens exam, we take a number of important factors into consideration to ultimately make the right recommendation on a type of contact lens that suits your needs and lifestyle.
On the flip side, even if you have recently had a contact lens exam done, we will still recommend an annual comprehensive eye and vision exam as part of your routine eye care.
What to Expect During a Contact Lens Fitting
When you come in for a contact lens fitting, we will begin by performing a number of tests to evaluate your vision. This includes measuring the surfaces of your eyes to determine the right size and type of contact lens for your needs. From there, we may also perform a tear film evaluation to make sure your eyes are producing enough tears to comfortably wear contacts.
Our optometrist will then determine the necessary corrective vision prescription for contacts, as this is often different from the prescription you would wear with traditional glasses. We can then help you when it comes to ordering any contact lenses you may need right here in our office. Even if you need a specialty type of contact lenses, we can get this taken care of for you.
