What to Expect During a Contact Lens Fitting in Chehalis

Wearing eyeglasses is a common way to correct vision, but some people prefer wearing contact lenses instead. These lenses can be more convenient to wear when you need to make sure you can see clearly. When you come in and see our Chehalis optometrist for a contact lens fitting, you can expect the following from this appointment.

Vision Tests

You can expect to undergo different vision tests, including acuity tests, in order to determine what kind of vision problem you have and how severe it is. The results of these tests provide you with the prescription you need for your contact lenses. The type of contacts that are most suitable for your eyes will depend on the vision problem you have, such as nearsightedness or astigmatism, how strong your prescription is and whether or not you have dry eyes or other eye conditions.

Contact Lens Fittings in Chehalis

At our eye care clinic in Chehalis, our optometrist will measure your eyes to determine the size that your contacts need to be. This helps ensure a comfortable fit when you wear them. Our eye doctor will also discuss the different types of contact lenses for you to consider, such as soft lenses or gas permeable lenses. You might need special contact lenses, such as scleral lenses if you have certain eye conditions.

When your contact lenses are ready, our eye doctor will ask you to put them in to ensure that they fit comfortably. Keep in mind that it can take time to get used to having these lenses in, so you can expect slight discomfort at first, especially if you have never worn contacts before. Our optometrist will also make sure that you can see clearly when you have your new contacts in.
