During a regular eye check-up, your eye doctor will evaluate the health of your eyes and what rate of vision correction you will need. Our contact lens fitting process is as follows:
Identify Corneal Curvature – Our optometrists will use special equipment to determine the curve of your eyes. Getting the specific measurements will allow us to provide you with the best fit.
Tear/Dry Eye Evaluation – To wear contact lenses, patients must be able to create enough tears to avoid painful dry eye irritation with the lenses. Our eye doctors will evaluate your tear film and ducts and provide options depending on your results.
Trial Run With Lenses – Once we’ve identified your sizing and measurements, our eye doctors will provide you with lenses to “test out.” This will ensure the best possible comfort and fit.
Follow Up Visits – After a trial run with test lenses, if you’re having issues or questions, our optometrists will need a follow up visit to check on the fit and your eyes.
