What To Expect During a Contact Lens Fitting

What To Expect During a Contact Lens Fitting

Choosing contact lenses as an alternative to glasses can be a significant step towards improved vision and convenience. At Riviera Opticare, with locations in Mesa and Scottsdale, AZ, we offer comprehensive contact lens fittings to ensure you receive the best possible care. Understanding what to expect during a contact lens fitting can help ease any concerns and prepare you for the process.

The Initial Eye Exam

The first step in a contact lens fitting at Riviera Opticare is a thorough eye exam. This is crucial for determining your overall eye health and vision needs. During the exam, our eye doctor will check for any underlying conditions that might affect your ability to wear contact lenses. This comprehensive assessment includes evaluating your visual acuity, testing for eye diseases, and measuring your eye's curvature and size.

Discussion of Lifestyle and Preferences

After the initial examination, the eye doctor will discuss your lifestyle and preferences. Understanding how you plan to use your contact lenses, whether for daily wear, extended wear, or occasional use, will help in selecting the most suitable type of lenses. This discussion also covers any specific needs, such as astigmatism correction or multifocal lenses.

The Contact Lens Fitting

During the fitting process, the eye doctor will provide trial lenses for you to wear. These lenses are carefully chosen based on your eye exam results and lifestyle preferences. The fitting ensures that the lenses sit correctly on your eyes and provide clear, comfortable vision. The eye doctor will evaluate the fit and make any necessary adjustments. This step is essential to ensure the lenses do not cause discomfort or harm your eyes.
