What to Expect During Contact Lens Exams
During a contact lens exam, an eye doctor performs special tests to assess your vision. These may include measuring the clear covering of the eye and the cornea. Since most contact lenses rest on the cornea, the eye doctor will examine it comprehensively to check for any abnormality that may make wearing contacts ineffective or uncomfortable.
Why You Should Go for Contact Lens Exams
Contact lens exams are very important since the eye doctor will check whether the lenses are working properly or not. They also check whether there are any issues in your eyes.
Depending on the test findings, the doctor will decide whether you should continue using the lenses or make necessary adjustments.
If you want to wear contact lenses for the first time, an exam will help our optometrist determine the type of lenses you need depending on your vision needs. Also, they ensure you get the right size of lenses that will not correct your vision problems but also feel comfortable on the eyes.
Also, when you see our optometrist for these exams, you get a chance to discuss any concerns you may have about your vision.
When to Go for Contact Lens Exams
It’s advisable to go for contact lens exams annually. However, you might have to go for these exams more frequently if our eye doctor in San Antonio recommends it.
