FAQs

WHAT DOES A CONTACT LENS EXAM INCLUDE?

A Contact lens exam includes an evaluation of cornea (front surface of eye) to determine which contact is the best option, an evaluation of the fit of the contact on the eye, and a prescription for contact lenses.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REGULAR EYE EXAMS AND CONTACT LENS EXAMS?

A regular eye exam does not evaluate contact lenses and you do not get a prescription for contact lenses. The contact lens exam can be added to the comprehensive eye exam.

WHAT ARE SPECIALTY CONTACT LENSES?

Specialty contacts are designed to treat corneal conditions or other eye issues that conventional contacts cannot treat.
