Contact Lens Exams

If you regularly wear eyeglasses and want to make the switch, suffer from a refractive error, or want to give yourself a new look, getting a contact lens exam is necessary beforehand. Give a call to Advanced Eyecare in Las Vegas to make an appointment with our optometrists for an assessment of your vision. Here is some information about what you can expect during your contacts lens session to help prepare you for your appointment.

You Will Need to Fill Out Some Paperwork

When you first come into our office, we will ask you to fill out some paperwork pertaining to your medical history. This is necessary so that any treatment our optometrists provides, will not counteract medications you are taking. A part of this documentation will ask you questions about your vision and any other problems you are experiencing. Be sure to fill this information in so that our eye doctors can address any concerns during your appointment.

Your Eyes Are Examined and Your Vision Is Tested

After your documentation is filled out, a member of our optometry staff will start conducting tests to find out if your eye health is up to par. This includes looking into different pieces of machinery and following instructions on where to gaze. Each of these tests are non-invasive and does not take a lot of time to complete. If there is an indication that you are suffering from an optical condition, our optometrists will take a closer look at the problem and discuss possible treatment options if necessary.

Your Eyes Are Measured For Contacts and You Will Try A Pair In Our Office

After you finish with the eye and vision exam, our optometrists will then measure and prescribe the correct prescription for your contact lenses. This will ensure your new contact lenses do not shift once they are inserted into your eyes. You will then try on a set of contact lenses to check on the fit. At our website, you are able to order contacts at your convenience. You are also able to check your order status. It is the easiest and fastest way for you to order contacts, in case you need a replacement set. We have a variety of contacts available to meet all of your eye needs.

If you are ready for a contact lens exam, call Advanced Eyecare in Las Vegas to set up an appointment with our optometrists. Contact us at 702-737-3937.
