If you wear contact lenses or are considering using them in the future, it is important to realize the importance of regular contact lens examinations and fittings. At Eye Town, our Beaver eye doctor can include a contact lens examination within a regular, comprehensive eye exam in order to save you the time of two appointments and also to stay up to date on your eye health and how your contact lenses are working for you. During a regular comprehensive eye exam, our Beaver eye doctor will perform a series of tests checking on the state of your vision and testing for any common eye diseases. If you wear contact lenses, your visual acuity and refraction will be tested in order to see if your prescription needs to be strengthened or adjusted in any way.
When you first get your contact lenses, or if you would like to switch your contact lenses, you will also need a contact lens fitting provided by our Beaver eye doctor. Wearing contact lenses that are not fitted properly can be uncomfortable and even dangerous, so contact lens fittings are something that we take very seriously and require a great deal of precision. At Eye Town, we use state of the art equipment combined with the expertise of our Beaver eye doctor in order to do a series of measurements in order to have your contact lenses fitted correctly, such as cornea measurements, pupil measurements, and iris measurements. Your contact lens fitting may also include an analysis of your tears in order to determine which type of contact lens would work best for you. Our goal is for you to have contact lenses that are completely comfortable and that make your vision as precise as possible.
