Contact Lens Exams
If you have been thinking about making the switch to contact lenses, our team at David R. Frazee, O.D. can provide you with a contact lens exam in Richardson. There are many reasons you may want to switch to contact lenses; not only are they a more convenient option for many, but they can also be more practical for those who play sports or engage in other physical activity. And of course, with contact lenses, nobody has to know you're wearing a corrective prescription.
Of course, you may be wondering why you would need a contact lens exam from our optometrist in Richardson. After all, you already know your prescription, and maybe you even had a traditional eye exam recently. A dedicated contact lens exam is still highly recommended for those who are wanting to wear contacts, as these exams allow your eye doctor to make sure you're a viable candidate for contacts and that they can recommend the right type of lens for a smooth transition and comfortable wear.
Specifically, a contact lens exam will include visual acuity testing using an eye chart, as well as a thorough physical examination of each eye. The purpose of this comprehensive testing is to determine whether or not you suffer from any eye conditions that would make it difficult for you to wear traditional contact lenses. For example, astigmatism is a condition that is characterized by an abnormal curve on the lens of the eye; this can make wearing regular contacts uncomfortable. Therefore, if you have astigmatism, our optometrist may need fit you for specialty contact lenses.
During your contact lens exam, our optometrist in Richardson will also take the time to ensure you're comfortable with the responsibilities involved with having contact lenses and the process of inserting them, removing them, and even cleaning them on a regular basis to avoid infection and other complications.
The good news is that no matter what type of contact lenses you may need, our eye doctor in Richardson has you covered. We offer a wide range of lens options to suit your needs and lifestyle. For example, if you're not sure about having to clean your contact lenses each day, we may recommend daily disposables. And of course, if you have an eye condition that requires specialty contact lenses, we have a variety of options available to you. Some examples of specialty lenses that we offer include:
