At Optica 20/20 San Antonio, our optometry team works diligently to meet all of our patient’s eye and vision care needs. Eye exams help us to diagnose eye diseases and determine the best corrective lens prescription. During your visit to our eye care center, we can discuss contact lens options that fit your needs and your lifestyle. If you suffer from allergies or dry eye, we can determine if contacts are a good option.
What Happens during a Regular Eye Exam?
Before we can prescribe contact lenses, our optometrist will determine what level of vision correction you need. A refractive error such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism can be evaluated by looking at how your eye focuses when different lenses are used to see. We will take measurements during your eye exam to form a diagnosis.
Contact Lens Exams
After taking note of any refractive errors, we will work with you to determine if contacts are ideal for your vision. If so, we will perform additional testing to determine the best prescription for your contact lenses. We will also discuss contact lens options including soft or rigid gas permeable lenses, and daily, weekly, or monthly contacts. We also offer multifocal and bifocal contacts. If you are interested in changing the color of your eyes, we also offer contacts in a variety of colors.
After we help you decide which contacts will work best for you, we will give you a trial fitting. You will go home and wear the new contact lenses for about a week. Then you will return to our office and we can make adjustments to your prescription as needed or order your next supply. We can also instruct you on how to use and care for your contact lenses if this is your first time wearing contacts.
