Clear Vision Awaits You

If you wear glasses, you know of the restrictions that come with them. From rain spots to slippage, wearing glasses can be challenging at times. The good news is, contacts are an excellent option for escaping the constraints of glasses. 

At Empress Eye Clinic, we help our patients find the perfect pair of contact lenses for their eyes, and that means making sure each patient gets a proper contact lens fitting and exam. Are you interested in what contact lenses can do for you? Book a contact lens exam today!

Why Do You Need a Contact Lens Exam?

Every eye is different, with different measurements and different needs. This is the exact reason why contacts require a contact lens exam– because they aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution.

To safely and effectively bring you clear vision, we use various tools and technologies to determine your prescription. 

Already have a prescription for eyeglasses? You’ll still need an eye exam to determine your contact lens prescription, which is different from your eyeglass prescription. 

Getting Your Contact Lenses 

Getting the right pair of contact lenses includes three easy steps: a contact lens exam, a contact lens fitting, and a trial period. 

The Eye Exam

The first step to getting contact lenses is to receive a proper contact lens exam.

During a contact lens exam, we’ll take a comprehensive look at your entire visual system to determine whether or not contact lenses are right for you.

If your optometrist deems you a good candidate for contact lenses, the next step is to receive a contact lens fitting.

The fitting helps determine your contact prescription by measuring your eyes to find the correct size, style, and shape of contact lens needed. In some cases, we may recommend specialty contact lenses if your eyes require additional care.

Once we’ve fitted your contacts, we’ll ask you to test out a trial pair to make sure your eyes adjust well to wearing contact lenses. If you notice any irritation, please remove your contact lenses immediately and give us a call.

Once your contact lens prescription is finalized, you’ll be ready to order your contact lenses and wear them regularly!
