Eye Exams For Contact Lens
Unique Aspects of a Contact Lens Eye Exam
If you’re thinking about changing to contacts, it’s important to know that contact lens eye exams require different tests than eyeglass exams. This difference means that you’ll get the best fit and prescription that’s right for your eyes and your lifestyle. Here’s a breakdown of contact lens eye exams at Vision Gallery:

Evaluating the Tear Film
A tear film assessment is performed on your eyes to gauge their moisture levels and to check for any signs of dry eyes. Optometrists should carry out certain tests before recommending appropriate lenses for treating dry eye conditions.
Ensuring the Perfect Contact Lens Fit
Using a slit lamp, your eyes will be carefully examined so as to verify the condition of your ocular surface. Apart from giving information about the health condition of the eye at its front, it also assesses the performance of a trial lens on the eye. Usually, a contact lens fitting will last for two visits. During the next visit, we reconfirm that the lenses fit into your eyes perfectly.
Why is a Specialized Exam Needed for Contact Lenses?
Contact lenses sit directly on the eye, necessitating precise measurements to guarantee a perfect fit. Unlike glasses, which are positioned some distance away from the eye, contacts require a distinct set of parameters to ensure clarity, comfort, and eye health.
Regular Check-ups: The Key to Optimal Eye Health
Routine eye exams are essential for those who wear contact lenses. These exams help to identify potential problems early on, thus ensuring that the lenses are providing optimal vision and comfort to the wearer. Vision Gallery strongly recommends annual eye exams or as recommended by the optometrists.
