What To Expect During a Contact Lens Fitting

Contact Lens Fitting

If you're thinking about getting contact lenses, it's normal to have a lot of questions for your eye doctor Bakersfield. As you look for an "eye doctor near me" to conduct an optometry exam, be sure to let them know that you're interested in contact lenses. An optometrist Bakersfield on our team can conduct contact lens exams and will be happy to help you. We at SouthWest Eye Care have an “eye doctor near me” that can help.

How an Optometrist Bakersfield at Our Practice Conducts a Contact Lens Fitting

Before a contact lens fitting, an eye doctor Bakersfield on our team has already examined your eyes and talked with you about what type of prescription lenses would be best for both your prescription and your lifestyle. A sample pair of these lenses is then handed over, and a technician may take over to help you with the fitting.

If you have never worn contacts before, it can take a few tries to learn how to get them in and out of your eyes. Don't worry if you don't catch on after a few minutes, our technicians deal with people every day who struggle to learn how to get their lenses in and out and an eye doctor on our team will not be too far away either. Because it is tricky, it is likely that that the technician will make you do it two or three times before leaving the office.

Finally, the technician will talk with you about storing, cleaning and maintaining your contacts. Depending on the exact type of lens an optometrist on our team has prescribed, these directions can vary a bit, but don't be afraid to ask questions. If you forget something that you were told, just give our optometrist office a call; we can usually answer these types of questions over the phone.
