When our clients opt for contact lenses, two things are very important: a proper and comfortable fitting of contacts and the right hygiene. A contact lens exam consists of two parts: the first is a comprehensive eye exam to check vision prescription and eye health, and then a contact lens evaluation.
What is a Contact Lens Fitting?
When you’re selecting contact lenses, it’s important to choose a proper fit, otherwise, you may experience blurry vision, discomfort, and in some cases, even the eye can be damaged. Our specialists will conduct a precise contact lens fitting that includes several measurements:
- With a keratometer, the eye doctor will take measurements of the curvature of the cornea of your eye. Some patients may require more detailed measurement of the cornea with a special device called corneal topography.
- With a biomicroscope, the doctor will measure the pupil or iris size (it is the colored area of the eye). This is an important measurement for those people who need specialized contacts, for example, GP lenses.
- Visual tasks that require your eyes to be tensed a lot
- The eye doctor will measure a tear film evaluation dripping a drop of liquid dye on the eye and then defining how much moisture is produced. Insufficient tear production
After all the needed measurements, our consultant will teach you how to put on the contact lenses and take them out. You will also be provided with clear and detailed hygiene instructions about how to care for lenses and how to store them.
