What to Expect: Contact Fittings from Eye Care Specialists of Kissimmee, Florida

What to Expect: Contact Fittings

Seeing a doctor for any reason can cause you to feel nervous. This includes your anticipation of undergoing a contact lens fitting. If you wonder why your Kissimmee, Florida Eye Care Specialists decided you needed an extra appointment for contacts, we can explain why.

What’s the difference between a contact lens fitting and an eyeglass exam?

If you originally wore glasses, a portion of your eyeglass exam determined what prescription you need. Right before an eyeglass exam, your eye doctor also probably looked into your eyes to see if you have glaucoma, hypertension, or diabetes. A regular exam tells you much of what you need to know about your eyes. However, a contact lens fitting exam also involves the following:

  • Eye surface measurement – This will help your eye care specialist match you up with the proper size, shape, and type of contacts.
  • Tear film evaluation – If your eyes produce tears, it will make wearing contact lenses more comfortable. Your eye specialist can find out how well your eyes make teardrops.
  • Near and distant vision tests – Even if you had an eyeglass exam, you still need one for contact lenses. The contact lens tests measure your vision distance for your prescriptions as you can see directly on your face instead of 12 millimeters away as would be for glass prescription tests.

After the Contact Exam: Time to Choose Lenses

After your contact lens exam, your Kissimmee eye care specialist will help you choose the ideal lenses. Depending on eye condition, size, shape, and other factors; you can choose disposable or extended wear. You also can decide if you want colored or clear contacts, and your prescribed lenses will correct conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
