Contact lenses play a crucial role in providing clear vision for many individuals. Whether it's driving, enjoying special moments with your children, or reading, contact lenses can make a significant difference. Understanding the importance of contact lenses, let's take a look at what you can expect during a contact lens exam at Manufacturer Direct in Deerfield Beach.
The first step of a contact lens exam is a vision screening. During this part of the visit, our optometrist will guide you to look through a specialized device called a phoropter. It may appear unusual, resembling a pull-down mask with two eye holes. Looking into the lenses, our optometrist will ask you to read various lines of letters and indicate which ones you can see clearly. Based on the results, we will determine the prescription for your eyeglasses.
The next part of your appointment is the astigmatism test. Our eye doctor will present different sets of images for you to compare and determine which ones appear clearer. The results of this test will help us identify if you have astigmatism and its severity.
Eye Health Exam
We will carefully evaluate the health of your eyes by using a specialized magnifying device and thoroughly examining your eyes. Additionally, we may perform a "puff" test to check for high pressure, which could be a sign of glaucoma, among other tests.
Contact Lens Fitting
Following the visual acuity test, our optometry specialist will proceed with a contact lens fitting. This is a quick and relatively simple process for you. You will simply look into a device that will calculate the measurements of your eyes for the contact lenses. Once completed, our eye doctor can determine which contact lens brands are available to you and assist you in selecting the right one.
Choosing the Right Contact Brand/Type
We understand that patients prioritize comfort and affordability. Based on the results of your contact lens fitting, eye health examination, and visual acuity tests, we will determine the most suitable brand for your specific needs and preferences.
