Prioritizing Your Eye Health and Comfort
Contact Lens Exam, Tacoma, WA
At Family EyeCare Associates in Tacoma, Washington, we offer contact lens exams for both experienced contact wearers and those who are new to wearing contacts. Our friendly, experienced eye doctors Dr. Spencer Garlick, Dr. Zaccary Pincock, and Dr. Sharon Williams will work with you to choose a contact lens type that meets your unique needs, lifestyle, and vision requirements.
What to expect during a contact lens exam
At Family EyeCare Associates, we want to make sure your eyes feel comfortable and that your lenses fit perfectly. If you’re new to contacts, we’ll check your vision and eye health to make sure that wearing contacts is right for you. We’ll then carefully measure your eyes and ask you about your lifestyle and hobbies so that we can recommend a contact lens that fits your unique needs.
If you’re already wearing contact lenses, we’ll check how well they fit and the overall health of your eyes. We want to ensure that your contacts are still suitable for you.
Why do I need an exam for contact lenses?
Contact lenses are medical devices and regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. A poorly fitting lens can cause discomfort, blurry vision, and even eye infections. Regular contact lens exams allow us to monitor your eye health, ensure your lenses still fit properly, and update your prescription as needed.
A contact lens exam includes additional measurements that aren’t included in a regular eye exam. When you schedule your eye exam, make sure to let us know if you’re thinking about getting contact lenses or if you currently wear them. This way, we can set aside extra time for a contact lens evaluation or schedule a separate appointment if necessary.
