Contact Lens Exam
For many, contact lenses provide an ideal path to clearer vision and freedom from glasses. However, before making the switch or updating an existing prescription, a comprehensive contact lens exam is crucial. This specialized assessment is more detailed than a regular vision exam to ensure proper fit, comfort, and long-term eye health. Before visiting Saline Optometry in Saline MI, and Chelsea Eyeglass Co. in Chelsea, MI, learn more about what to expect during the exam below:
What to Expect During Your Exam
A thorough contact lens exam will typically include the following:
- Vision assessment: Our optometrists will measure your refractive error, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and assess your binocular vision.
- Corneal topography: This mapping of the surface of your cornea helps determine the ideal lens shape and size for optimal fit.
- Tear film evaluation: Healthy tears are essential for comfortable lens wear. Our optometrists will assess your tear quality and quantity for contact lens compatibility.
- Slit lamp examination: This magnified look at your eyelids and inner eye helps identify any potential concerns that could impact lens wear.
- Trial lens fitting: Our eye doctors will have you try different lenses to ensure they fit comfortably and provide clear vision.
