Our expert doctors have been offering contact lenses exam in Herndon, VA, since 2006. As a patient, you can rest assured that you are receiving high-quality eye care from providers with extensive training and experience in vision correction. Most people can wear contact lenses without any problems, but not everyone is a good candidate. Our optometrists have the expertise to determine whose eyes are suitable for contacts and whose are not.
While you could order inexpensive contacts online – outside of an optometrist’s office – be aware that this comes with risks such asa one-size-fits-all mentality for care, low-quality products, and even damage to the health of your eye. If you value your vision and want your eyes to last for your entire life, a contact lens exam from our experienced optometrist ensures you are getting highly-personalized care for comfort, optimal vision, and quality of life.
A routine eye exam doesn’t include many of the measurements and testing necessary to determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear. Additionally, it doesn’t determine 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.
