Contact Lens Exams & Fitting
Finding the right contact lenses for you begins with a contact lens exam, which includes a full medical evaluation of your eyes to determine which contact lenses could work for you. We also look for special considerations, like dry eye, that might influence our contact lens choice. Finally, we update your prescription, so your contact lenses give you the clearest vision possible.
After the exam, we move onto the fitting. During the fitting, we measure the shape of your eye to get an initial idea of which type of contact lens will fit you best. We use techniques like Medmont corneal topography, which maps your cornea with an accuracy of two microns. For fitting specialty lenses, such as scleral lenses, we also use anterior segment imaging and OCT, which gives us a clear picture of the angle, slope, and thickness of your cornea.
Following the contact lens exam and fitting, we will have a thorough understanding of which contact lenses are best for you based on your unique needs. We will supply you with a pair of lenses that you’ll wear for a trial period. Once we’ve established that they are comfortable and provide you with clear vision, we will write you a prescription for the lenses. If you’re happy with your new contact lenses, you can easily order more contacts online when the time comes.
