Considering contacts? The professionals at Optical Expressions can help. First, you’ll need a contact lens exam to be fitted for contacts.

A contact lens exam differs from your annual eye exam. During your contact lens exam, our eye doctor will check your chart and your eyes to determine if you can wear conventional soft lenses. Some conditions make wearing soft contacts impossible, including:
Next, your optometrist will measure your eyes to ensure the chosen lenses fit properly. If you have any of these conditions, our eye doctor may recommend hard-to-fit contacts, such as:
Discuss Your Lifestyle
After learning a bit about your lifestyle, your eye doctor can help you choose the lens type that will be most convenient for you. There are several types of soft contacts, including:
Contact Lens Teaching
To help ensure your satisfaction, your eye doctor will give you a pair of trial lenses to wear for a week or two. Before leaving the office, a tech will teach you how to insert and remove them. They’ll also teach you best practices for lens care.
Scheduling a Followup
Scheduling a follow-up appointment allows our optometrist to ensure the lens is still a good fit for your vision. If you have a problem with the trial lenses, your optometrist can make the necessary adjustments and give you another trial pair of lenses to wear.
After a week or two, you will return to the office for another follow-up. If the lenses you were prescribed are comfortable and you can see clearly, you can order your supply of contacts while you’re here.
