Your Contact Lens Exam and Fitting
During your contact lens exam the doctor will take very specific measurements of your eye, so that you may be assured of the best possible fit. Some of these tests include the size and front curvature of your eye, the cells of your cornea, and the diameter needed for your contact lenses. These measurements will be taken on an annual basis. Changes may warrant the need for updates of your existing contact lens prescription or style, even though they may feel comfortable to you. After your exam you will be directed to the contact lens technician. They will schedule your contact lens fitting, answer any questions you may have, and also discuss fees with you.
