What Happens During a Contact Lens Exam?
If you want to switch from glasses to contact lenses, you should come in for a contact lens exam. During the exam, our eye doctor tests your sight and learns about your vision history. The exam doesn't take long and it gives us the information we need to make an informed recommendation about the types of contact lenses that would improve your vision.
During your contact lens exam, our eye doctor will also take the time to get to better know your lifestyle so we can make recommendations on contact lenses that will best suit your needs. For example, if you don't have time to deal with the daily cleaning of your contact lenses, we might recommend a daily disposable option. Do you have astigmatism or another condition that doesn't work well with traditional contacts? We can set you up with specialty lenses that may give you a more comfortable option.
When to Get Contacts
There's no age minimum or maximum for when to get contacts. For younger clients, we simply recommend that the parents ensure that their teen or preteen child can handle the responsibility without jeopardizing their vision. For older clients, wearing contacts for long periods sometimes becomes a challenge. This is due to a tendency toward dry eyes and a decline in vision that often occurs as a natural part of aging.
Switching to contact lenses works well for clients with active lifestyles. During sports, exercise, and other events, glasses can become cumbersome. That's why we have an array of contacts in our office. We encourage you to try a few brands and styles to find the one that's most comfortable and suits your lifestyle best. We make ordering contacts after your contact lens exam hassle-free. Your eye doctor will also teach you how to insert, remove and adjust your contact lenses, as well as the best way to care for them.
