Contact Lens Exams

Wearing contact lenses can help you see clearly and allow you to eliminate the use of eyeglasses. At Silicon Valley Eyecare Optometry and Contact Lenses in Santa Clara, CA, we provide contact lens exams to learn more about your condition and to recommend the necessary lenses. Before visiting us, learn more about what to expect during this exam below:

Contact Lens Exam

Eye Exam for Vision Correction

If you need contact lenses to correct a refractive error, such as nearsightedness, you’ll need an exam so we can check your vision. The exam allows our eye doctors to figure out the exact prescription needed for astigmatism, hyperopia, or myopia control. You’ll also look through several lenses that are used to measure your visual acuity and help ensure that you get the right prescription for clear vision.

Types of Contact Lenses

Not all contact lenses are the same. Depending on your diagnosis, you might need a specialized type of contact lens. For example, certain contacts are more suited for those who have dry eye, low vision, or astigmatism. If you need contact lenses for nearsightedness or farsightedness, there are different kinds to choose from. Some of these include soft lenses, gas-permeable lenses, disposable lenses, and extended wear lenses. When you visit us, we can speak with you about the various choices and help you choose the ones that would be best for your condition.

Cosmetic Lenses

Not everyone wears contacts to improve their vision. Some people choose to wear cosmetic contact lenses to temporarily change their eye color. If you’re interested in cosmetic lenses, our optometrists can help you select the right kind and color.

Contact Lens Fittings and At-Home Care

It’s important that your contact lenses fit properly. Our eye doctors can help you with the insertion and removal process to ensure that your lenses are not causing any discomfort. We can also provide you with information on how to care for your lenses. You will need to keep them clean and prevent debris from building up on them. If you have any questions, our team is happy to assist you during your visit.
