Contact lenses have become a popular vision correction option among people. They are thin, curved lenses placed directly on the eye surface. Contact lenses are a preferred choice for people who do not want to wear glasses. But before you get contacts, you will first need a contact lens exam. We provide comprehensive contact lens exams at Orange County Vision Center in Garden Grove, CA. Our eye doctors will evaluate your vision needs and ensure the lenses you get are suitable for you.
Why are Contact Lens Exams Important?
Since contact lenses are medical devices, it's crucial that they are prescribed and fitted by a qualified eye care professional. Not every type of contact lens is suitable for every individual. The wrong type of lenses can cause serious eye problems, including infections and sometimes even corneal ulcers.
An exam is crucial to make sure you are getting the right lenses for your eyes. It's also crucial to ensure you get comfortable lenses. Lenses that don't fit well can be very uncomfortable and can cause eye irritation.
What Happens During a Contact Lens Exam?
There are several things you can expect from a contact lens exam. Expect our doctors to discuss the varieties of contact lenses with you. There are a lot of different types of lenses available on the market, and it's vital to get the most suitable ones. For instance, you may be considered for daily disposable lenses, which you throw away after each use. Perhaps you may be better suited for hard to fit contacts if you have an eye condition such as dry eye or astigmatism.
During this appointment, you can also expect advice on how to care for your lenses and your eyes. Our eye doctors will go over the proper way to clean and store your lenses, as well as how often you should replace them. It's important to follow these instructions carefully to avoid eye problems. If you have any questions, be sure to ask them during the appointment.
