Complete routine eye exam
Whether you have 20-20 vision or wear glasses or contact lenses, it is important to have a periodic eye exam to keep your eyes and vision in the best possible state. Normally these exams consist of:
- Ocular tests to determine the refractive error and the graduation.
- Making "cover tests" to see how both eyes work together.
Adaptation of contact lenses
Contact lenses are medical devices, so you will need a graduation prescription to buy them and your specialist must make sure that the exam you have done to prescribe the use of contact lenses includes the adaptation of the lenses. For the adaptation of contact lenses a consultation and a measurement is required.
The specialist will ask about your lifestyle and preferences. Some contact lenses may be better for athletes with active lifestyles, for example, while others are better suited for people who travel frequently and may occasionally need to sleep with their lenses on. Your specialist will also ask if you prefer to use colored contact lenses or disposable lenses.
It is important to verify that the lenses are well adapted to the eyes
