A Custom Prescription for Your Contacts

Clear, comfortable vision with contact lenses relies on an up-to-date contact lens prescription. Your contacts prescription is different from your eyeglasses prescription and includes additional information about the shape of your eyes.

Visit us for a comprehensive contact lens exam to get your prescription.

About Your Contact Lens Exam

During your contact lens exam, we’ll test your visual acuity with an eye chart and measure your refractive error with our digital Reichert Phoroptor.

We’ll also measure the curvature of your cornea, which is the front portion of your eye, and the size of your pupil and iris so we can find the right lens fit for the unique shape of your eyes.

If you have a high degree of astigmatism or a corneal irregularity due to keratoconus, we’ll use corneal topography to create a 3D map of your cornea. This tool allows us to custom-fit specialty scleral lenses, which can offer clear vision for people with irregular corneas.

Caring for Your Contact Lenses

Excellent contact lens hygiene is essential to prevent eye infections or scratches related to contact lens use. Good contact lens hygiene habits include:

  • Wearing your contact lenses for the amount of time prescribed and replacing them for new lenses as recommended by your optometrist
  • Washing your hands before and after inserting or removing your lenses
  • Cleaning your lenses as directed, including always rubbing them, even if you use a “no-rub” solution
  • Never sharing your contacts with anyone else
