Contact lens exam

image5

What to expect @ your first visit with us

  1. First you will need an comprehensive vision examination to determine your refractive error ( this is your prescription for eyeglasses)
  2. Next we will perform a few additional tests to measure your corneal curvature to determine what size of contact lenses your eyes will need
  3. This process is call a contact lens evaluation or contact lens fitting

Contact Lens Fit & Fee

  • Contact lens evaluations are different than your annual eye exam. While we can do them on the same day, there will be an additional fee to be fitted with contact lenses .  

  1. Our fee starts at $170 for REFIT with spherical simple contacts and higher fee for more complex lenses
  2. Our fee starts at $400 for FIRST time spherical simple contacts and higher fee for more complex lenses 
  3. Contact Lens Prescription is good for ONE year.


  • Contact lens evaluations involve evaluating the health of the surface of the eyes, fitting the contacts to your eye’s cornea, ensuring that the contact lens material interacts positively with the eye, determining the water content of the lenses is appropriate for your eye, and finding your contact lens prescription. All of these things are considered in the cost of your evaluation. 


  • Contact lens prescriptions are different than glasses prescriptions, as the contacts lay on the surface of the eye rather than in front of your eyes.

First time-Never worn Contact Lens Visit

  • As a brand new contact lens wear, patient will need to schedule a time to be thoroughly train for insertion, removal, and care of contact lenses


  • Contact Lenses are consider to be a Medical device and there are risks involve therefore  we must take time to train and teach all new patients how to care for their eyes while using contact lenses.


  • This first time visit may takes about 1 hour -2 hours depending on how fast the patient is able to learn to insert & remove the contact lenses


  • Trial lenses ( temporarily lenses) and solution will be provide at the time of your visit for training


  • It may takes 2 to 3 visits to find the "perfect fitting lens" for your eyes and your prescription needs.  This is all inclusive in your 60 days and no additional fee are acquired during these visits.
  • Once we finalize your precription, you may purchase lenses and use them.  After this visit, we will see you annual for your eye exam.


  • At Your NEXT year's exam, your will be charge for a refit fee to revaluate your contacts, your vision, and the health of your eyes while wearing contact lenses.


  • This fee is less expensive than your first time fitting and your exam is much quicker since you do not need to be re-train.

tips for contact lenses

Contact Lenses and Cosmetics

You can wear contacts and cosmetics safely and comfortably together by following these helpful tips:

  • Put on soft contact lenses before applying makeup.
  • Put on rigid gas-permeable (RGP) lenses after applying makeup.
  • Avoid lash-extending mascara, which has fibers that can irritate the eyes. Also avoid waterproof mascara, which cannot be easily removed with water and may stain soft contact lenses. Replace mascara at least every three months.
  • Avoid applying eyeliner along the watermark of the eyelid.
  • Remove lenses before removing makeup.
  • Choose an oil-free moisturizer.
  • Don't use hand creams or lotions before handling contacts. They can leave a film on your lenses.
  • Use hairspray before putting on your contacts. If you use hairspray while you are wearing your contacts, close your eyes during spraying and for a few seconds after.
  • Blink your eyes frequently while using a hair drier to keep your eyes from getting too dry.
  • Keep false eyelash cement, nail polish and remover, perfume and cologne away from lenses. They can damage the plastic.
  • Choose water-based, hypoallergenic liquid foundations. Cream makeup may leave a film on your lenses.

Do's and Don'ts


If you are interested in wearing contact lenses, get off to the right start by seeing a doctor who provides full-service care. Your doctor will provide you with a thorough eye examination and an evaluation of your suitability for contact lens wear. You will also receive the lenses, necessary lens care kits, individual instructions for wear and care, and follow-up visits over a specified time. The initial visit and examination can take an hour or longer.


Do:

  • Always wash and thoroughly dry your hands before handling contact lenses.
  • Carefully and regularly clean contact lenses as directed by your optometrist. If recommended, rub the contact lenses with your fingers and rinse them thoroughly before soaking the lenses overnight in multipurpose solution that completely covers each lens.
  • Store lenses in the proper lens storage case, and replace the case at least every three months. Clean the case after each use, and keep it open and dry between cleanings.
  • Use only fresh solution to clean and store contact lenses. Never reuse old solution. Change your contact lens solution according to the manufacturer's recommendations, even if you don't use your lenses daily.
  • Always follow the recommended contact lens replacement schedule prescribed by your optometrist.
  • Remove contact lenses before swimming or entering a hot tub.
  • Avoid tap water to wash or store contact lenses or lens cases.
  • See your optometrist for your regularly scheduled contact lens and eye examination.


Don't:

  • Use cream soaps. They can leave a film on your hands that can transfer to the lenses.
  • Use homemade saline solutions. Improper use of homemade saline solutions has been linked with a potentially blinding condition among soft lens wearers.
  • Put contact lenses in your mouth or moisten them with saliva, which is full of bacteria and a potential source of infection.
  • Use tap water to wash or store contact lenses or lens cases.
  • Share lenses with others.
  • Use products not recommended by your optometrist to clean and disinfect your lenses. Saline solution and rewetting drops are not designed to disinfect lenses.
  • Sleep in contact lenses after being exposed to pools, lakes, oceans, hot tubs or other sources of water that can contain bacteria.

Contact lens case care

 Contact lens case care:

  • Contact lens care systems are highly important to the success of your contact lens wear and also the reduction of risk for infections. A major part of any contact lens care system should include proper sanitation and replacement of contact lens cases.
  • The American Optometric Association has formed best practice recommendations from frequently asked questions.
    Clicking the links below can save you from future infections and possibly even permanent vision lost.


HOW OFTEN SHOULD I REPLACE MY CASE?

  • The American Optometric Association recommends you replace your contact lens storage case at least every three months. Your contact lens solution manufacturer may recommend replacement at anywhere between one and three months of use. Failure to replace the contact lens case at the recommended interval increases the risk of complications.


DO I NEED TO REPLACE MY CASE EVEN IF IT LOOKS CLEAN?

  • Yes. Bacteria and other micro-organisms produce a substance called biofilm. Biofilms can form in a contact lens case, helping bacteria "hide" from the disinfectant in the contact lens solution.1,2,3,4,5 Biofilm cannot be seen by the naked eye; therefore, it is best to replace your contact lens case at least every one to three months.


HOW SHOULD I CLEAN MY CASE?

  • You should follow your solution manufacturer’s recommendations to clean and replace your lens storage case. Immediately after lenses are removed, discard the old solution from the wells of the case. The recommended steps from here may vary but usually include rinsing the case out with fresh solution and then air drying the case with the caps off. Following these guidelines can reduce the chances of infection or inflammation.
  • Recent research also suggests that adding a rub and a wipe step can assist with biofilm and bacteria removal in lens cases. Immediately after lenses are removed, discard the old solution from the wells of the case. Rub the case with clean fingers for at least five seconds, rinse with the contact lens disinfecting solution, then wipe dry with a clean tissue. Air dry the case face down on a tissue with the caps off.
  • Avoid washing the case with tap water as this has been linked with an increased risk of development of Acanthamoeba keratitis, a severe corneal infection that can lead to permanent vision loss.


HOW SHOULD I STORE MY LENS CASE WHILE IT'S AIR DRYING?

  • Contact lens cases should be stored to air dry in a clean, dry location. The case can be placed on a clean tissue with the case face down and the caps off.


IS THERE ANY PROBLEM WITH EACH NIGHT SIMPLY ADDING THE SOLUTION ALREADY TO MY CASE?

  • Adding additional solution to a contact lens case containing used solution (known as "topping off") has been linked to serious eye infections and is associated with the development of contact lens-related complications.
  • To reduce this risk, recent research recommends contact lens wearers discard all used solution, rub the lens case with clean fingers for at least five seconds, rinse the case with a steady stream of contact lens disinfection solution, and then wipe the case wells dry with a clean tissue.4 Air dry the case face down on a tissue with the caps off.
  • Avoid washing the case with tap water as this has been linked with increasing the risk of developing Acanthamoeba keratitis, a corneal infection that is resistant to treatment and cure.

CONTACT LENS SOLUTONS & care

https://www.aoa.org/patients-and-public/caring-for-your-vision/contact-lenses

1: What is the best contact lens care system?

  • Contact lens care systems are highly important to the success of your contact lens wear and also the reduction of risk for infections. Your contact lens care system has been carefully selected for you by your optometrist in order to be compatible with the lens and lens materials you are using as well as the way you wear your lenses.
  • There are many different types of contact lens care systems but the basic two types are multipurpose care solutions and hydrogen peroxide care solutions.
  • For gas permeable (GP) lenses, your solutions may contain either a one-step (multipurpose) solution or a two-step (cleaning and soaking) solution or you may also use a hydrogen peroxide solution. 


2: Do I need to rub my lenses when I take them out?

  • Yes, if you are using a multipurpose solution with soft contact lenses (there are currently no recommended “no rub” multipurpose contact lens solution regimens). Rubbing the contact lens for between two and 20 seconds, depending on your contact lens care solution, removes deposits and micro-organisms and reduces complications.


3: Are my solutions good for an indefinite period of time (i.e., past the expiration date)?

  • Contact lens solutions should never be used after the expiration date listed on the packaging. The United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) has also recommended that solution manufacturers begin labeling solution bottles with a discard date, in addition to the usual expiration date. The discard date is the date the solution should be thrown out after opening (typically within 90 days, but varies depending on the manufacturer and solution type)


4: Can I use any lubricants or red eye drops with my contact lenses?

  • Any eye drops not approved for contact lens wear can cause damage to both the contact lens and the eye.1 Stay away from drops that claim to “get the red out,” as they typically contain chemicals that may be detrimental to your long-term eye health.
  • Preservative free eye drops, in general, are very safe to use with contact lenses. Eye drops that contain preservatives can have a toxic effect on the eye and should be avoided.


5: I only wear my lenses occasionally. How should I store them in the meantime?

  • Care systems for contact lenses are all very different, and it is important to note how long contact lenses can be safely stored in solution long term before the solution needs to be replaced. Some solutions are only good for 24 hours of storage while others can store lenses for up to one month.Some soft contact lens multipurpose solutions allow for long-term storage of up to one month in a tightly closed contact lens case. For GP lenses, some GP lens solutions also allow for one month of long-term storage. Some hydrogen peroxide-based systems allow for seven days of long-term storage before the lenses need to be re-disinfected but others are as short as 24 hours of storage time. The night before you are ready to wear your lenses again, it is a good idea to inspect the lens and then re-clean and disinfect it according to the solution manufacturer’s instructions. 


6: What are the proper steps to follow each time I remove my contact lens from my eye?

  • Contact lenses are all taken care of differently; this is a sample of how most soft contact lenses are cared for after removal in conjunction with a multipurpose solution (rub and rinse times may vary depending on solution manufacturer). 
  • Hydrogen peroxide care systems are different from below. Keep in mind that daily disposable contact lenses are removed each night and thrown away so no cleaning is required.

  1. Always wash and dry your hands thoroughly before handling your contact lenses.
  2. Always work with the same lens first (example: always remove your right lens first or your left lens first).
  3. Remove one lens and place it in the palm of your hand.
  4. Apply multipurpose contact lens solution and rub the lens for about 20 seconds on each side (actual rub time depends on the solution manufacturer’s instructions).
  5. Rinse the contact lens with the multipurpose solution for about 10 seconds on each side (actual rinse time depends on the solution manufacturer’s instructions).  Never use tap water to rinse your lenses as it has been shown to significantly increase the risk of severe ocular infections.
  6. Place the contact lens into a clean, dry lens case and then completely fill the well of the case with multipurpose solution.
  7. Repeat steps three through six with the other eye’s lens.
  8. Soak the lenses according to the manufacturer’s recommended soaking time. This time will vary with depending on the brand of solution, but is usually between four and eight hours.
  9. Read the solution packaging thoroughly for instructions about lens cleaning and always follow the manufacturer recommended procedure.
  10. Dispose of your contact lens case every one to three months. Overuse of a case can result in significant eye infections due to bacterial contamination. A new case is typically provided with each new bottle of solution purchased.
  11. Always rinse your case with fresh solution and allow it to air dry in the morning before reusing it. Never “top off” your solution - doing so increases your chances of a contact lens related complication.8

 https://www.aoa.org/patients-and-public/caring-for-your-vision/contact-lenses 



7. I dropped the contact lens on the floor, but I don’t have time to run an entire disinfection cycle with my solution. What do I do?

  • It is not enough simply to rinse off the contaminants and dust particles from the floor. Bathroom floors and other such surfaces may harbor significantly high numbers of microorganisms.
  •  While the tear film and corneal surface provide a remarkable barrier to infection, one never knows when the barrier may break down.
  • The only sure way to guarantee safety is to apply a new contact lens. This can be easily accomplished if you are wearing disposable soft contact lenses. 
  • The next best thing is to wear your back-up glasses while you clean the lens through the entire disinfection cycle as recommended by your care system's manufacturer. Every contact lens wearer should have a pair of glasses to wear as needed in cases like these when their lenses cannot be worn.


8: Is it okay to use tap water to insert or store my lenses?

  1. No. Tap water contains micro-organisms which can lead to serious eye infections and loss of vision.1,2 One of the more well-known water-borne infections is caused by Acanthamoeba, a microscopic, free-living amoeba (single-celled organism)
  2. Acanthamoeba can cause an infection of the cornea, the transparent outer covering of the eye where a contact lens sits. These organisms are very common in nature and can be found in bodies of water (for example, lakes and oceans), hence the recommendation to avoid use of water with lenses.You should never use tap water in any area of your lens care, including rinsing the lenses and the lens case. 
  3. Do not attempt to make your own homemade saline or contact lens solutions. Also, make sure your hands are completely dry before handling your lenses.

40-Somethings: Say No to Bifocal Glasses

Between the ages of 40 and 45, our eyes lose the ability to focus on objects up close.  It’s called “presbyopia” and it’s a part of the natural aging process. That doesn’t mean you have to settle for wearing your grandmother’s bifocal eyeglasses, though.

Thanks to our exclusive Aquaform® Technology, Biofinity multifocal lenses allow plenty of oxygen to pass through to your eyes. And their natural wettability won’t rinse off. You’ll enjoy excellent vision with a soft, comfortable lens that’s healthier for your eyes.

If you’re over 40, why pull out eyeglass readers or let traditional bifocal contact lenses slow you down? Biofinity multifocal contacts offer a clear (and comforting) advantage. Ask your eye care professional about Biofinity contact lenses (pronounced “Bi-OH-fin-itee”).
