- Are there any long-term issues with wearing contacts?
First, the doctor will ask you questions
They’ll ask about your hobbies, activities and lifestyle. The doctor is trying to determine what the best lens may be for you.
Then, they will take measurements
They’ll check the health of your eyes and measure them as well.
Then, you’ll discuss contact lenses types
When you decide, the doctor will measure the diameter and curvature of your eye. Once you’ve been fitted, they’ll check your vision once more.
Lastly, you’ll learn how to care for lenses
You’ll be taught how to put in, take out and properly care for your lenses.
