Advancements in contact lens technology offer the potential for successful contact lens wear for most of our patients. Contact lenses not only enhance visual acuity and appearance, but also improve performance in visual tasks and sports. Because contact lenses are medical devices placed on the eyes, they require expert fitting and careful instruction, as well as conscientious care and compliance with recommended follow-up examinations to maintain the healthy functioning of your eyes. To ensure your contact lens success, we would like to familiarize you with our contact lens procedures and policies.
The Eye Exam
Before you can be fitted for contact lenses, a complete medical and refractive examination is necessary. This exam is critical to assuring the good health of your eyes and ruling out the possibility of any unsuspected, underlying conditions which may prevent contact lens use. If contact lenses are feasible, the complete eye exam will help us select the most appropriate lens material and design for your eyes.
