Have you noticed reading a computer screen or words up close has become increasingly difficult? Or maybe you’re having difficulty reading signs that are in the distance while driving at night. Whether you’re having trouble seeing for the first time or are looking for an alternative to your bulky prescription glasses, contact lenses might be the solution you’ve been looking for.
Before you can use contact lenses to improve your vision, you need to take the necessary steps to ensure that the lenses are fit properly and comfortably to your eyes. Rancho Santa Fe Optometry offers a comprehensive eye exam to check the health of your eyes, determine your prescription, and measure your eyes for properly fitted contact lenses. Following your appointment, we can provide you with your prescribed contact lenses.
Not sure what to expect when you come in for your comprehensive eye exam and contact fitting? Here’s the rundown.
What Happens During a Comprehensive Eye Exam?
Before moving forward with contacts, your eye doctor will perform a comprehensive eye exam to ensure that they are healthy and that there are no underlying health conditions. Certain eye health issues could be exacerbated by the use of contact lenses, which is why these must be detected before your contact lens fitting. Along with evaluating the health of your eyes, the optometrist will also determine the necessary prescription to correct your vision. If your doctor believes you are a good candidate for contact lenses, you’ll move on to your lens fitting.
What to Expect During a Contact Lens Fitting
Because there are so many different types of contact lenses available, your doctor will talk you through the various choices and ask you questions about your lifestyle. For instance, together you will determine if daily disposable contacts or overnight lenses are best based on your eye health and vision needs. Following this evaluation, your eye doctor will measure your pupils, irises, and corneal curvature to provide you with contact lenses that best fit your exact eyes.
Once you’ve narrowed down the type of contacts you’ll be getting and have your measurements taken, your optometrist will give you a prescription for your new contact lenses. After a few weeks of use, you will likely have a follow-up optometrist appointment to ensure everything is correct with the prescription and fit of the lenses for optional vision and comfort.
