Keep reading to learn more about contact lens exams from our licensed optometrist in Fairfax, VA at Visual Health Doctors of Optometry.
Are You a Candidate for Contacts?
A routine eye exam doesn’t include many of the measurements and testing that are necessary to determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear or the nature of your own precise prescription. For example, if the curvature of your contact lens is too flat or too steep for your eye’s shape, you could experience discomfort or even long-term damage to your eye. Our optometrist uses a diagnostic instrument called a keratometer to take the appropriate measurements of your eye’s clear front surface or cornea.
Beware of Online Contact Lenses
While purchasing contacts online may seem convenient and easy, be aware that not all contact lenses are created equal. Factors that can affect your vision and comfort include the quality of the contact lens material, the technology used to create the lens, the diagnostic equipment used to evaluate your eyes, and the experience of your doctor. You want your eyes to last a lifetime, so why trust your eye care and contact lenses to some faceless entity? The best way to ensure you are getting quality lenses that fit properly is to see our licensed eye care specialists.
