What Should I Expect?

Generally speaking, finding the right contact lenses is a 3-step process: the exam, the measurement, and the trial period. 

The Exam

You’ll start with a comprehensive contact lens exam to look for any issues that could impact your ability to wear contact lenses. Because contact lenses sit directly on your eye, you’ll need a slightly different prescription which we can update during this exam. 

The Measurement

Once your exam is complete, your optometrist will measure your eyes to ensure your contacts fit properly. This involves precise measuring of your cornea with non-invasive technology. Depending on the measurements, we may need to customize your contact lenses to your eye shape.

The Trial

Now that the preliminary work is finished, it’s time to start trying contact lenses! 

We’ll provide you with our recommendations based on the results from your exam and measurements. We’ll also help you practice inserting and removing the lenses, and make sure they fit your eyes. You’ll be able to try out your lenses of choice for about a week at work and home to see if they’re right for you.

Specialty Contact Lenses

Contact lens technology is constantly evolving to provide better, more diverse options for patients with differing vision needs. At Northern Lights Eyecare, we offer a variety of specialty contact lenses to help you see clearly and comfortably without the limits of glasses.
