Do you currently use contact lenses as your vision correction method of choice? Are you interested in switching to contact lenses in the future? If so, it is important to remember that contact lens exams and fittings are key parts of keeping your eyes safe and healthy while using contact lenses. Here at our Bronx eye care clinic, Park Professional Eye Care, contact lens exams and fittings are some of our most valuable and popular services. Whether you are interested in trying contact lenses for the first time, or if you are a long time contact lens user, exams and fittings are still just as important.
A contact lens exam is just like a regular eye exam, but it can take a little bit longer because it requires some extra steps. For this reason, you should always let us know that you are coming in to our Bronx eye care clinic for a contact lens exam rather than a regular eye exam so that we are ready for your appointment. We will administer the regular tests and examinations performed during a general comprehensive eye examination, and then we will take the steps necessary to determine your contact lens prescription and fit. The experts at our Bronx eye care clinic will try different lenses on your eyes if it is your first time wearing contact lenses, so that we can help you choose the brand that is best suited and most comfortable for you. If you already are a contact lens user and are coming in for a routine visit, we can also try out different lenses with you if you are considering switching brands. If it is your first contact lens experience, we will also take the time to show you how to properly insert and take out your lenses, as well as instruct you on how to keep them clean and sanitized at all time.
