A visit to Visual Health Doctors of Optometry for a contact lens exam in Ashburn, VA – or at one of our other conveniently located optometry offices – means that you are receiving high-quality eye care from eye doctors who have extensive training and experience in vision correction. While most people can wear contact lenses without any problems, not everyone is a good candidate for contacts. Your eyes need to last your lifetime – so you certainly don’t want to get poor quality contacts from a faceless website! Keep reading to learn about the importance of a separate contact lens eye exam from our experienced optometrists at Visual Health Doctors of Optometry.
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 experienced optometrist uses a diagnostic instrument called a keratometer to take the appropriate measurements of your eye’s clear front surface or cornea.
