Contact Lens Exam from Lewis County Eye and Vision: Why This Matters

There are lots of people who have refractive errors with their vision. Some of the most common include myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. At Lewis County Eye and Vision, we are an optometrist in Chehalis, and we are proud to provide the most advanced contact lenses on the market. At the same time, we also need to make sure that our contact lenses are going to fit our patients. That is why we recommend all our patients undergo a contact lens exam before we figure out which contact lenses to prescribe.

The Goal of a Contact Lens Exam

Before we get to work figuring out which brand of contacts is going to work well for our patients, we need to make sure that everyone has an updated contact lens exam first. This contact lens exam is going to accomplish two things. First, we are going to make sure that we know which prescription strength is going to work best for our patients. Second, we are going to make sure that our contacts are going to fit our patients' eyes. When it comes to contacts, they have a standard curvature which is going to work for most patients but not everyone. That is the goal of our contact lens exam. We want to make sure that standard contacts are going to fit.

What Happens if I Do Not Pass the Contact Lens Exam?

Sometimes, our patients do not pass the contact lens exam. That is okay! The good news is that we still have options available for those who would like to wear contacts. That is where hard to fit contacts come in. We have our patients undergo a specialized contact lens exam so that we make sure that we know which curvature is going to fit well for their eyes. Then, we will have contact lenses that are made specifically for that patient. We can help you!
