Preparing for a Contact Lens Fitting at Yardley Eye Care in Yardley, PA

If you’ve never experienced a contact lens fitting, then you are probably wondering what it will be like and what will happen. Once you understand how the exam will be performed, you’ll know there is no need to worry. You are in good hands at Yardley Eye Care in Yardley, PA. What is important is that the contact lenses that you wear will be customized to your eyes so that they will be a perfect fit.

Perfect Fit For Your Eyes

After testing your eye’s surface to evaluate the type and size of the contacts that are the most appropriate for you, we will prepare the prescription for your lenses. The next step is for them to be fitted to your eyes. With a proper contact lens fitting, your vision will be corrected and the contact lenses will feel comfortable when wearing them. Unlike a pair of glasses, the contact lenses sit directly on the surface of your eyes, making it important that they are an exact fit.

Fitting the Lenses

We will perform a few different types of scans and tests to be sure that the size of your new contact lenses is correct. We’ll also need to check the curvature of your contact lenses to confirm that they are an exact fit across your entire eye. This begins with an instrument called a keratometer, which measures and records the surface of your cornea. After measuring the way the light reflects off your eye’s surface, we’ll go on to the next step, which is to measure your pupils. This is done either with a comparative chart or by digital imaging. Another test that we might perform when preparing your contact lenses is a tear film evaluation. This simply confirms that you have adequate moisture in your eyes to wear contact lenses.
