Contact lens exams are a vital part of the Optometry profession. Can you believe that people stick pieces of plastic in their eyes on purpose? The evolution of contact lenses will have to be written about in another post. We're here to explain what a contact lens exam is and why you need one every year.

What is a contact lens exam? The terminology used in the industry is a "Contact Lens Evaluation". This is in fact, separate from your yearly vision exam. During your yearly vision exam, there are certain tests and measurements that our good eye doctors take, but during the contact lens exam our doctors check for fitting, comfort, GPC (Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis) which is a fancy way of seeing if the patient has a mild allergic reaction to contact lenses and other measurements. Fun fact, the majority of patients actually have a different contact lens prescription than their glasses prescription.

The FDA and State of California put an expiration on the contact lens prescription which we comply with. Contact lenses have been deemed a medical device and daily use should be monitored under the direction and care of our Optometrists. If you are looking for great service and experienced eye doctors you've come to the right place. Call our office at 909.861.3737 to schedule your contact lens exam today.
