A contact lens exam involves several steps and additional time.
Eye anatomy, eye health, individual goals, and prescription-type make contact lens evaluations and fittings different for every patient.
You will be interviewed to determine your individual and personal vision goals. You may only want to wear contacts for sports once per week, or perhaps you'd like to wear them daily for reading and close-up tasks. Some types of lenses, such as toric lenses for correcting astigmatism or multifocal lenses for correcting presbyopia, tend to take more time to achieve a perfect fit.
If you've never worn contact lenses, you will be taught the proper way to insert, remove, and disinfect them.
