The Right Contact Lens Exam Makes All the Difference

Before you can wear your contact lenses, you first need to have a thorough contact lens exam with one of our experts to make sure your lenses fit properly. We use state-of-the-art technology in these exams to precisely measure your eyes to ensure you see clearly and comfortably with your contacts.

What Is a Contact Lens Exam?

A contact lens exam is a specialized eye examination that determines the suitability and prescription requirements for your contact lenses. During the exam, your doctor will evaluate your front-of-eye health, measure the specific curvature of your cornea, and assess your tear film. We’ll also discuss your lifestyle and visual needs to select the most appropriate type of contact lenses and give you instructions on insertion, removal, and care for your lenses. Ultimately, our contact lens exams ensure you receive customized and safe contact lens options tailored to your specific eye characteristics and lifestyle!

Why Are Contact Lens Exams Important?

Contact lens exams are important for several reasons. They ensure the overall health and safety of your eyes and detect any underlying issues that could be exacerbated by wearing contact lenses. Even if you don’t have an eye condition, contacts can’t correct vision effectively if they don’t fit properly, so an exam is required to get precise measurements. And if you do have certain eye health issues, we offer specialty lens options that may be an excellent option for you.

Our Contact Lens Options

Standard Contacts

For many patients, standard lenses are a great way to see clearly without having to rely on glasses. Since we understand that every patient has different needs, our doctors have a variety of brands to consider, with options ranging from daily to monthly wear.

Scleral Lenses & Other Specialty Contacts

Some patients can’t wear standard contacts because they have poor front-of-eye health or “hard-to-fit” eyes. Fortunately, specialty options are available at our Greenwood and Fishers locations. Our scleral lenses can help patients with corneal conditions like dry eye by retaining moisture and protecting eyes from external irritants. Likewise, our Neurolens® glasses can correct both vision and eye misalignment using contoured prism designs.

Myopia Management Lenses

Myopia management lenses do more than correct your child’s vision: they also slow down the progression of nearsightedness. Working with Treehouse Eyes, we use these lenses to reduce the risks associated with high levels of myopia, such as an increased likelihood of developing eye diseases like retinal detachment, glaucoma, and macular degeneration later in life.

Amniotic Membranes

While amniotic membrane contact lenses aren’t technically vision-correcting lenses, this solution contains natural therapeutic properties, including anti-inflammatory, anti-scarring, and wound-healing effects. When placed on the surface of your eye, they create a protective barrier, reduce inflammation, and facilitate the regeneration of damaged corneal tissues.
