When thinking about wearing contact lenses, the standard eye exam for eyeglasses is performed, and as part of our contact lens exam in Humble, we will test your visual clarity using an eye chart. Our experts will also determine if you have any refractive errors (blurry vision) that prevent your eyes from properly focusing light. Once our optometrist at Today’s Vision have finished the regular exam, your eyes will be measured to make sure that lenses sit properly over your corneas. We may also ask you to wear trial lenses during your visit to see how your eyes handle them. We are also to provide you with various contact lens choices, including multifocal, bifocal, rigid or soft lenses, with the option to change the color of your eyes with colored lenses. If you are visiting us requesting contact lenses for the first time, we will give you a thorough contact lens exam in Humble to make certain you are a good candidate for wearing contacts. Since there are so many lens choices, our educated doctors will listen closely to your goals and choose the lens that best suits your lifestyle.
Contact lens rests on your cornea when inserted into your eye, so the curvature of your cornea must be measured accurately in order to guarantee an ideal fit. Another necessary test that will be done as part of our contact lens exam in Humble, is the slit lamp exam. Although this test is performed during a regular eye exam, our optometrist at Today’s Vision may spend more time doing a slit lamp exam for a contact lens wearer. From time to time, medical eye problems are detected that need to be treated before your fitting is completed.
