Do I Need an Eye Exam for Contact Lenses?

You will need to get the help of an optometrist in order to get fitted with the best sized and type of contact lenses to improve your vision. Contact lenses are only available by prescription, and not everyone is suitable to wear them. For instance, younger children and people who cannot maintain the hygiene associated with contact lenses might not be good candidates for contact lenses. In addition, it's important to get fitted for contact lenses so you can rest assured your vision disorder is being properly treated.

Vision disorders that contacts can treat include refractive errors, which are errors caused by misshapen corneas or lenses that impact how the light is focused in the eye. Refractive errors include issues such as astigmatism, farsightedness, and nearsightedness.

How Can an Eye Doctor Help Me with Contact Lenses?

Our eye doctors will conduct a variety of vision tests, dilate your eye, and take a look inside of it to determine if your vision disorder can be treated with contact lenses. We will also determine the right prescription so you can get the best correction for your vision disorder.

Our optometrists might also recommend different contact lenses for vision disorders, such as scleral lenses that cover the entirety of the eye and help people with keratoconus, hybrid lenses that are rigid yet still flexible, and gas permeable lenses.
