Maintaining Healthy Eyes

Contact Exams at Brookside Optometric Group

What to Expect

Contact lenses can be great, but only if they fit correctly! If you’re being fitted for contact lenses, our doctors will undertake a comprehensive contact lens exam in addition to your regular eye exam.

Your Contact Lens Exam will include:

Precise Measurements

Your doctor will measure the surface and curvature of your eye so that we can find the best-fitting lenses.

Lifestyle Matters

Will daily, weekly, or monthly disposables work best for your lifestyle? Your doctor will discuss the options with you.

Test Fitting

Your doctor will place the lens on your eye to ensure a correct and comfortable fit.

Training for Wear

You will be trained on how to insert, remove, and care for your new contact lenses.

Stay on Schedule

We’ll provide a wearing schedule for your new lenses before you leave the office.

Return and Reassess

We’ll schedule another visit within a week to reassess the fit once you’ve had some time with your new lenses.

*The Optomap Retinal Scanner is an optional service provided to our patients at a small additional charge.
