Why is a Contact Lens Exam Important?

Contact lens exams are an important part of eye health care. It is a way to check how well your contact lenses fit and to make sure they are still providing the correct level of vision correction. A contact lens exam can also help identify early signs of eye problems. If you wear contacts, be sure to have an annual exam with an ophthalmologist.

Eye Exams for Contact Lenses: Your Next Steps

If you decide to start wearing contact lenses, the next step is to schedule a follow-up appointment with your eye doctor. At that appointment, you will have a consultation during which you will go through the steps of wearing and caring for your contact lenses. Each type of lens often has its own specific rules about when and how often you should wear it.

Best Practices for Contact Lenses

If you wear contact lenses, hygiene is essential to your overall health. To keep your eyes healthy, follow the rules set by your eye doctor. We will tell you exactly what to do and recommend specific products to keep your eyes healthy. Plus, your eyes are a lot more sensitive than you might think. You do not want dust or debris in your eye to scratch or irritate it. That is why you should wash your hands before handling your contact lenses.
