Contact Lens Evaluations

Whether you’re receiving your contact lenses for the first time, or are having your existing contact lens prescription evaluated and updated, it is necessary for an optometrist to perform a contact lens evaluation. This includes monitoring the health and shape of the eye, the contact dimensions, powers and fit. This is done in conjunction with your annual eye exam. Please let us know at the time of booking if you are a contact lens wearer, or would like to be.


Our doctors request each patient receiving an eye exam have a retinal image called an Optomap performed with the Optos camera. This allows a much more thorough health check than traditional dilation. This is a valuable tool to look at the structures within the eye. Our doctors have caught retinal detachments, early signs of chronic health conditions such as diabetes, and malignant cancers with this technology. It is a vital tool for your good eye health.

Copays are expected at the time of service.

What if I already see an Ophthalmologist?

If you see an Ophthalmologist, and just need to the eye glasses prescription (refraction), just let us know when you call for your appointment. We coordinate care with many local Ophthalmology centers. Refraction only visits are not covered by medical or vision insurances, the fee is $50.
