Before you begin a contact exam, it’s necessary to complete a comprehensive eye exam. During the contact exam, we’ll look at the following:
Eye surface measurements:
Before deciding the type of contact lens best suited for your use, the doctor will measure the physical surface of your eyes. Because contact lenses are placed directly onto the eyeball, it’s imperative that they’re both comfortable and accurately measured.
Tear film evaluation:
If you already suffer from dry eyes, contact lenses may not be for you. The doctor will examine the tear film on your eyes to ensure they’re capable of supporting contact lenses. If your eyes are slightly dry, your optometrist may recommend specialized, extra-breathable lenses.
During your contact lens fitting in Boston Heights, OH, the optometrist will furnish you with a pair of trial contacts and observe the way that they fit over and move with your eyes. After wearing these trial contacts for one week, the doctor will make a final determination.
If you’re wondering what brand and style of contact may be best suited for you, we have trial samples from the following brands available at our clinic for your convenience: CooperVision, Air Optix, Acuvue and Bausch + Loam.
