Why Are Eye Exams Important?
Contact lenses are often more complex than they appear. Even if you are currently experiencing no problems, the lenses may be causing damage to your eyes. After the initial exam, the doctors will perform a contact lens exam.
At this time, they will re-evaluate the fit of your contact lenses and observe if there are changes to the health of your eyes caused by your lenses. They will ensure that you will have a correct, current prescription to help avoid any serious problems, especially if you wear your lenses on an extended or overnight schedule.
Once properly fit, you will be asked to return to have a follow-up visit. At this time the doctor will check your vision with the contact lenses on, evaluate the fit of the lenses and ensure that the lenses are not irritating your eyes.
