During the contact lens exam, several measurements relating to the curvature of the cornea and prescription of the eye are taken. The health of the front surface of the eye is also checked thoroughly. During the exam, a trial pair of lenses is inserted during the appointment. This is done to make sure that the fit is accurate and also allows you to see how the lenses feel.
We carry several different contact lens modalities including:
- Daily Disposables
- Frequent replacement soft disposables
- Soft and RGP toric lenses
- Spherical Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) lenses
- Custom Soft lenses
- Multifocal soft and RGP lenses
- Custom scleral RGP lenses
- Color and Cosmetic soft lenses
Most trial soft contact lenses are available in our office, so you may leave with the necessary diagnostic lenses after your exam. Soft contact lens boxes can be either shipped directly to your home or to our office for pick-up. Scleral lenses, RGP lenses, and certain soft contacts are custom made products and will be available for fitting during your contact lens follow up exam.
