Why You Need a Contact Lens Exam
Contact lenses are a convenient and popular alternative to glasses, but we need to ensure they’re right for you and your needs. During a contact lens exam, our team will:
- Evaluate your vision and assess your overall eye health
- Measure the size, shape, and curvature of your eyes to determine the right fit for your contacts
- Test your eyes for issues that could affect your ability to wear contacts
- Provide you with a prescription for contacts and discuss your options for lenses, brands, and ongoing care

The Contact Lens Fitting Process
Before we can prescribe contact lenses, we need to perform a contact lens fitting. During the fitting, we perform a number of measurements to find the right contact for you, and we’ll also provide a thorough lesson on how to insert, remove, and care for your contacts.
Our goal is to help you feel fully equipped and comfortable with your new contacts so you can enjoy comfortable, clear vision.
What Are the Different Types of Contact Lenses?
There are many different types of contact lenses available, each designed to meet specific vision needs and lifestyles. Some of the most common types of contacts we recommend include:
Daily Disposable Contacts
“Daily’s,” as they’re sometimes referred to, are convenient, single-use contacts that you can dispose of each day.
Weekly or Monthly Disposable Contacts
A more cost-effective, long-lasting option, these contacts are replaced on a weekly or monthly basis.
Extended-wear contacts can typically be worn for up to 7 days, providing extended periods of use.
Toric Contacts for Astigmatism
Toric contacts for astigmatism correct astigmatism through a toric lens design, resulting in clear and stable vision.
Multifocal Contacts for Presbyopia
Multifocal contacts for presbyopia allow for clear vision at both near and far distances for individuals with presbyopia.
Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP)
RGP contacts are hard, custom-made contacts that provide clear vision for people with various vision conditions.
Ortho-K contacts are designed to temporarily reshape the cornea for improved vision while sleeping, reducing the need for daytime correction.
In some cases, we might recommend aspheric contact lenses, which use flatter edges compared to spherical lenses to help correct vision errors.
