One of the smartest decisions you will ever make is choosing to get contact lenses. People who go from wearing glasses to wearing contacts often rave about how they wish they had made the switch much sooner. The truth is, wearing contacts is oftentimes much simpler than wearing and having to keep track of glasses. For now, though, let's take a close look at what you can expect during a contact lens exam with our Sandy Springs optometrist.
When you come to the eye doctor, you are going to start off the office visit by filling out important paperwork. This paperwork is going to cover your insurance as well as your vision history. It is important that you answer each question as honestly as possible because your family's vision history very well may affect your current vision.
Next, you are going to go through a series of procedures that assess your vision. Once again, when asked questions during these procedures, you need to answer them honestly because this determines what your vision is as well as the corrective measures that are available to you.
There are many different types and brands of contacts, and they are not one size fits all. Your optometrist will measure your eyes and determine whether any conditions limit the kind of contact lens that you require.
You will likely wear a pair for a few weeks and then come back in for a follow-up appointment to make sure the contacts are working well for you. We want to make sure that your contacts are properly fitted and aren’t causing you any discomfort.
