How to Get Started
The first step towards contact lenses is to start with an eye exam and measurement by an optometrist. During this exam, a patient’s eye might also be checked for any conditions that may affect the type of lens needed. The eye is measured with special equipment to make sure the prescribed lenses have a precise fit. Once complete, the patient is walked through the options and what they entail for care and maintenance. When ordered, the prescription is then fitted by an optometrist, and there may be follow-up with the patient in case changes are needed. After that, regular wear and updating of the prescription can happen periodically.
