Contact Lens Fitting Process

Contact Lens Fitting Process

Our contact lens fitting exam and assessment includes: measuring corneal topography, corneal curvature, pupil size, and intraocular pressure; performing refraction, dilation, and retinal exam; evaluating tears, blink pattern, and lid anatomy; discussing expectations; and evaluating any previous lenses.  After, contact lenses will be put on the eye and evaluated for proper fitting characteristics such as good movement, centration, lens coverage, and any rotation of the lenses.

If your test results are approved and we determine you are a good candidate, most types of lenses can be dispensed to you the same day from our inventory.  If a customized lens is necessary, it will need to be ordered and it will be dispensed to you in our office upon delivery. We will provide you with instructions on handling, cleaning, inserting and removing your contacts at the time of dispensing.

Patients are usually asked to return to the office a week or two after dispensing the contacts for evaluation of compatibility, wearing schedule, fit, quality of vision and performance within the eye.  Adjustments to the contact lenses are made when indicated at no additional cost during the fitting period.
