What to Expect
Whether it’s your first time trying a pair or you’re trying something new, getting new contact lenses follows 3 simple steps.
A contact lens exam is similar to a comprehensive eye exam but is more focused.
Contact lenses are a good fit for most patients, but some eye conditions can create barriers. Our optometrists use a contact lens exam to assess your eyes and vision to determine an appropriate option.
At Gresham Optical, 2 tests performed during this appointment include:
- Corneal topography: Maps the cornea surface, detailing any distortions in the normally smooth curvature. Optometrists use the information to diagnose eye disease, plan for surgery, or fit contact lenses.
- Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT): Captures rapid, detailed scans of the front third of the eye (the anterior segment), including the cornea, iris, and lens. Optometrists can use ASCOT imaging to evaluate eye health and shape.
After learning about your eye health and vision needs, we’ll give you a pair of contacts to try. The temporary contact lenses are a trial pair, so you can practice using contacts at home to see if they’re a good fit or try a different brand or style of contact lens to see if they’ll work better for you before ordering a year’s supply.
You’ll keep your temporary contact lenses until we’ve had time to prepare your prescription. It’s okay if you decide you want to try a different kind of contact lens at this point. Sometimes it takes a little trial and error to find something perfect for you, but we’ll work with you to find a better fit.
We’ll see you for a follow-up to discuss how you feel about your contact lenses and evaluate your eye health after the trial run. Then, we’ll make any necessary adjustments or check in again at your next regular eye exam or prescription update.
