About Accent on Vision’s Contact Lens Exams
When you come into Accent on Vision for a contact lens exam, we will perform a series of tests designed to evaluate the condition and health of your eyes and determine what contact lens prescription is appropriate. It is quite common for people to suffer from dry eye, allergies, and recurring eye infections, at which point we will find a specialty lens that addresses these concerns. A contact lens exam is not a replacement for a comprehensive eye exam, but rather an additional exam that will tell us what lenses will best fit your needs.
We perform both comprehensive eye exams and contact lens exams in one appointment, making it an efficient and economical choice for contact lens wearers. When you come into Accent on Vision for a contact lens exam, the first part of the appointment will likely be an evaluation of the eyes. Once this has been completed, we will discuss your options with you. There are so many different contact lens choices on the market today, so it is imperative your eye doctor learns more about your lifestyle and what your preferences are when it comes to contacts.
Once we’ve discussed your lifestyle and different choices, we will get the following measurements:
- The curvature of your cornea (topography)
- Evaluation of your eye’s surface and how the contact lens will fit
- The size of your pupil and iris
- Tear film evaluation (or your body’s ability to produce tears)
DO’s and DONT’s for handling and wearing your contact lenses:
DO: wash and rinse your hands thoroughly with mild soap, and dry them with a lint-free towel.
DO NOT: touch the lens with your fingernails and never use tweezers to remove lenses from the container.
DO: inspect your lens before putting it in your eye. DO NOT use a lens if it is damaged.
Always remove, clean, and disinfect your lenses according to the schedule prescribed by your doctor.
