Many people find that wearing contact lenses provides them with crisp vision without altering their appearance to achieve it. If you are interested in wearing contact lenses, make an appointment with Dr. Cliff Hughes, OD for an exam. Our Fayetteville Optometrist will conduct the necessary procedures to check your vision and help you learn how to wear your new lenses. Here is some information about what to expect during an exam with our eye doctor.
Bring Along Any Pertinent Information
Before your examination takes place, our eye doctor will ask you several questions about your vision and your health. If you have any documentation that was provided to you by another optometrist, be sure to bring it along to your appointment so our practitioner can refer to it as necessary. It is also important to find out if your services are covered by your insurance provider in advance, if possible. A quick call to our facility will confirm this information so you are aware of the cost you will be responsible for at the time of your appointment.
Check The Eyes For Problems And Vision Requirements
Our optometrist will conduct an exam to check for any eye health difficulties that you may be suffering from. This is done with simple, non-invasive tests with our top-of-the-line equipment. Our practitioner will check your eyes with special lighting to look for abnormalities in detail. Afterward, vision screening is conducted. You will need to read a series of letters and numbers from a chart while looking through an eyepiece. Our practitioner will change the prescription strength to sharpen the images to obtain the perfect vision for your contact lenses. Measurements of your irises are also taken to ensure your new lenses fit over the proper portions of your eyes so you have perfect vision when they are in place.
Learn About Contact Lens Wear And Care
When our eye doctor has the proper measurements and prescription strength numbers to suit your eyes, they will provide you with a sample set of contact lenses to try on. These contact lenses can be worn home after your examination comes to an end. Our staff members will teach you how to insert your new lenses and the proper tactics required to care for them. They will show you how to clean and store your lenses and provide you with information about signs of lens wear so you know when to stop wearing them.
