Contact Lens Evaluation and Fitting

For success with contact lenses, see a doctor who provides full-service care. Before getting a prescription for contact lenses, you will undergo a thorough eye examination and evaluation of your suitability for contact lens wear.

If contact lenses are right for you, our optometrist will provide you with the lenses, lens care kits, individual instructions for wear and care, and unlimited follow-up visits over a specified time. Hygiene is the most critical aspect of successful long-term contact lens wear.

The American Optometric Association offers the following recommendations for contact lens wearers:

  1. Always wash and thoroughly dry your hands before handling contact lenses.
  2. Carefully and regularly clean contact lenses as directed by the optometrist. Rub the contact lenses with your fingers and rinse them thoroughly before soaking the lenses overnight in multipurpose solution that completely covers each lens.
  3. Store lenses in the proper lens storage case, and replace the case at least every three months. Clean the case after each use, and keep it open and dry between cleanings.
  4. Use only products recommended by an optometrist to clean and disinfect your lenses. Saline solution and rewetting drops do not disinfect lenses.
  5. Use only fresh solution to clean and store contact lenses. Never reuse old solution. Change the contact lens solution according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, even if you don’t use the lenses daily.
  6. Always follow the recommended contact lens replacement schedule an optometrist prescribes.
  7. Remove contact lenses before swimming or entering a hot tub.
  8. See an optometrist for your regularly scheduled contact lens and eye examination.
