Contact Lens Exams in Wichita
If you or a family member are looking into getting contact lenses, the first step is scheduling a contact lens exam at Child & Family Eyecare in Wichita. One of our optometrists will test your vision and assess your eye health. Afterward, you can discuss your options for prescription eyewear. Here's an idea of what to expect when you come in for a contact lens exam or fitting.
What to Expect
A contact lens exam involves more than getting a new prescription. Like a regular eye exam, the doctor will assess your vision and eye health. However, you also get a contact lens evaluation. Our optometrists check how your eyes work together and test your eye pressure. There are eye diseases that can interfere with the effectiveness of contact lenses and so, we look for those too.
If you currently wear contact lenses, we check your vision and assess whether your current contact lenses are comfortable for you. If needed, you can receive a new prescription. The doctor will go over the appropriate way to care for your contacts and address any threat to your eye health caused by your current habits. Optimally, anyone wearing contact lenses should come in for an exam once a year.
To protect your vision, make eye exams at Child & Family Eye Care a regular part of your health care. Our optometrists check for serious risks to your health such as hypertension and diabetes. These conditions are detectable during an eye examination, and they threaten the health of your eyes. Early diagnosis may prevent eye disease from worsening and may even save your vision.
Lenses Tailored to Each Person
You can choose from a wide variety of contact lenses and brands. Our staff is happy to help you find lenses that fit your lifestyle. For example, if you are very active, you might need special lenses that enhance night vision for late runs in the park or participation on a sports team.
There are lenses that correct astigmatism or that provide consistent vision if you move your head around a lot. We also have colored lenses that change the appearance of your eyes. If you work long shifts, you might like extended wear contact lenses. Daily disposable contacts work great for those who work in dusty conditions.
