Contact lenses make good alternatives for eyeglasses and effectively address several vision conditions. At Family Eye Clinic, we offer contact lens exams. If you have vision problems such as dry eyes, we can examine you to see whether contact lenses are right for you. After the exam, we will recommend the best contact lenses that suit your vision needs. We have state-of-the-art eye examination equipment that enables us to do these exams precisely and get the correct results. We are located in Little Rock, AR.
Do I Need a Contact Lens Exam If I Go for Regular Vision Exams?
You will need to go for a contact lens exam even if you go for regular vision exams. These two are very different. A regular vision exam helps detect various eye problems, while contact lens exams determine whether you qualify to wear contact lenses and which type of lenses you should wear.
Importance of Contact Lens Exams
A contact lens exam is essential as it helps you get contacts that fit well. If you get contact without going for the exam, there is a very high likelihood of getting contacts that don’t fit properly, which puts you at risk of developing conditions such as:
- Corneal abrasion
- Eye irritation
- Eye infections
What to Expect During A Contact Lens Exam Session
Our optometrist will ask you about your lifestyle and medical history. We will then conduct a vision exam to check the health of your eyes, then a contact lens exam to determine the prescription you require. After that, our optometrist will conduct a contact lens fitting to get the correct lens size before getting you the prescription lenses. You will also need to go for follow-up appointments after some time. During these appointments, the eye doctor will check whether the lenses have caused any changes to the cornea. They will also check whether the contacts are working as they should.
