Before Your Contact Lens Fitting Appointment

Before we fit you with contact lenses, we perform a comprehensive eye exam. During this exam your visual acuity will be tested using an eye chart and various tests to determine your prescription. This is also to check the overall health of your eyes; we want to make sure your eyes are in good health and there aren’t any issues that contact lenses could aggravate. An annual eye exam is recommended for all our patients, especially those with contact lenses. Learn more about our  comprehensive eye exams.

What to expect during a contact lens fitting

Background

During your fitting appointment, your Noblesville Eye Doctor will collect medical history and discuss any eye problems that may affect the effectiveness of contact lenses.

Measurements

Everyone has a different shape of their eye; what fits on person’s eyes may not fit another person’s. To determine the best fit, we measure the curvature of the eye, curvature of the cornea, size of the pupil, measure the diameter of the iris. We may also evaluate your body’s ability to produce tears.

These test help determine the best type of lens to match your prescription.
