Contact Lens Exams at Eyes Over Copley
Many people want to wear contact lenses for aesthetic purposes, so they can play sports without glasses and for other reasons. At Eyes Over Copley, we make it easy to schedule a contact lens exam, so our optometrist can tell you if you're a candidate for contact lenses. Your eye doctor will take several steps to make sure your eyes are healthy and that the correct prescription for your vision is produced.
Vision Exams at Eyes Over Copley in Boston
The first step is to go through an eye care exam. The vision exam requires you to read different lines of print using special lenses. Based on which lenses help you see most clearly, we can determine what prescription you need for your contact lenses.
During this test, our optometry office also checks your eyes for astigmatism, which require special contact lenses.
Checking Eye Health
Another thing our optometrist focuses on is making sure your eyes are as healthy as possible. We perform a screening to check for glaucoma and other types of damage to the eyes. If we find any damage or disease, we can help you learn more about how to treat those conditions.
Fitting Your Contact Lenses
After your prescription is written, and we know your eyes are healthy, we'll have you go through a contact lens fitting. During the fitting, we will ask you to look into a machine that measures your eyes. The dimensions given are used to create contacts that fit you well so that you can be comfortable when wearing them.
Finally, during your fitting appointment, we'll discuss how you can put in and take out your contacts safely. Our optometrist will also help you learn how to take care of your contacts to prevent infections and will make specific recommendations for your wearing schedule.
