Getting a Contact Lens Exam at Our Vision Center
Our vision center’s optometrists offer contact lens exams for individuals who have never worn contacts and individuals who need to have their contact lens prescription updated. When you come in to see our optometrist in Sikeston or Poplar Bluff, we will examine your eyes for any eye health problems and check for visual acuity problems by having you read an eye chart. If you have not been to see an eye doctor in a year or more, we may recommend that you schedule your contact lens exam along with your comprehensive eye exam. Contact lens exams, by themselves, are not as in depth as comprehensive exams.
Once we have the right correction for your eyes, our optometrist will measure your cornea and retrieve a set of sample lenses. The sample lenses may or may not be your prescription. They are designed to ensure that the calculation for the fit of your lenses is correct.
After they’ve determined that the fit and power for your lenses is correct, your lenses will be ordered. If you would like cosmetic lenses to change or correct the color of your eyes, tell our optometrist.
When your new lenses arrive, we will schedule another appointment to ensure your lenses fit correctly and provide you with the vision correction you need in order to see clearly while you drive, work and use a computer or mobile device.
