While many people think eye exams and contact lens exams are the same, they are quite different and accomplish different goals. Both exams are important, and at Optical Express we encourage you to make regular appointments, contact lens exams are specifically aimed to fit you for lenses. If you need contact lenses, an updated prescription, or are looking to switch things up, come see our Eye doctor in Washington Heights for your contact lens exam and fitting.
A contact lens exam consists of special tests to evaluate your vision with contacts. It is similar to a comprehensive exam in that your vision is evaluated, and our eye doctor in Washington Heights will conduct a series of tests,. The difference is not only evaluating your eye health and vision, but how we can improve your vision with contact lenses. The shape of your eye, the miniscule degree of your vision impairment, and so many more factors go into bringing you the best contact lenses.
Not everyone is a candidate for contact lenses. Our eye doctor in Washington Heights will likely perform a tear film evaluation to make sure you have sufficient tears to wear contacts comfortably. We may even be able to provide you with sample contact lenses for a short period of time so we can make any adjustments to your prescription or type of lens as necessary. There are also multiple kinds of contact lenses – some are hard and some are soft and disposable. Depending on the condition of your eyesight, lifestyle, and unique anatomy, we help you choose whats best for you. Come to Eye and Vision Care Associates for your next set of contact lenses in Syosset.
