Exam & Evaluation
The Eye Center offers a comprehensive eye exam designed to determine the best contact lens for your specific needs. The exam begins by determining your prescription for glasses.
Next, we take measurements of the eye for contact lens wear, and perform a dilated health exam. During the exam the physician will discuss your contact lens needs based on findings in the exam and your lifestyle.
Once the proper lens is chosen by the physician our experienced contact lens room staff will finalize your contact lens needs. We will provide you with a trial pair (if applicable), contact lens solution, instruction on proper care and maintenance of lenses, and set up a follow up appointment to re-evaluate proper lens fit. Contact lens re-evaluation is free of charge up to 3 months after the initial exam. At the follow up visit, our staff will provide you with your contact lens prescription, set you up for online ordering (if applicable), and/or assist in getting a supply of lenses for you.
Soft contact lenses are made of a soft polymer-plastic material combined with a percentage of water. Water allows oxygen to pass through the contact lens material and increases comfort. Read about the different types of lenses.
