What To Expect During a Contact Lens Fitting

Contact lens technology has advanced significantly in recent years, with new lens designs and materials entering the market. Today's market offers solutions for specific needs such as astigmatism, bifocal requirements, dry eyes, and even eye color changes. Whether you're new to contact lenses or getting a new set, there are some things you should expect during your fitting.

Switching to Contact Lenses

Deciding to switch to contact lenses can be stressful, especially if you have an eye condition that meant you were unable to wear them in the past. With contacts, you can perform daily activities without reaching for your glasses. Getting them fitted should be easy, and Dr. Seim at Atlantic Eyecare in Virginia Beach is here to guide you through the process.

What to Expect During Your Appointment

During your contact lens examination, our optometrist will use computer technology to measure the curvature of your eye to ensure proper-fitting lenses. Additionally, we will verify your prescription and perform tests to evaluate the overall health of your eyes to ensure you're a good candidate for contact lenses. Once we know what we're working with, we'll guide you through the best options for you.
