When it comes to the health of your eyes, the last thing you want is to cut corners. A visit to our office for a contact lens exam in Woodbridge, VA, 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 them. Our highly-qualified optometrists have the expertise to determine if your eyes are suitable for contacts.
In this day and age, it is easy to order inexpensive contacts outside of an optometrist’s office. But choosing this option comes at certain costs including low-quality products, one-size-fits-all vision care, and even damage to the health of your eye. So if you value your vision and want your eyes to last your lifetime, a contact lens exam from our experienced optometrist ensures you are getting highly-personalized care for the most comfort, optimal vision, and quality of life.
No two people’s eyes are the same, therefore your contact lens exam will be customized to your unique needs. 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.
