Contact Lens Exam, New York, NY 

When you come in for a contact lens exam at Dr. Gary Tracy Optometry & Eyewear on the Upper West Side, our expert eye doctor will carefully assess your eye health and vision. We’ll also ask you about your lifestyle and hobbies so that we can recommend the perfect contact lens that suits your eyes, vision, and unique needs. We have a wide selection of contact lenses that can accommodate common eye conditions such as astigmatism, presbyopia, and more. 

The contact lens exam may be conducted as part of your eye exam or may be scheduled as a separate appointment.   

During your contact lens exam, our experienced eye doctor will conduct a thorough assessment to find the best contact lens type for your unique eyes. The exam may include: 

  • Evaluating eye size and shape: We’ll carefully measure the size and shape of your eyes and the curvature of your cornea to ensure a precise fit for your contact lenses.  
  • Checking eye health: We’ll check for any eye health issues that might affect your comfort while wearing contact lenses.  
  • Trial contact lenses: To ensure optimal comfort and fit, we’ll provide you with trial contact lenses. Trying them out allows us to ensure that the lenses fit comfortably and provide clear vision. 
  • Follow-up appointment: After trying the trial contact lenses, we’ll schedule a follow-up appointment to see how you like the contacts and address any concerns you may have. 

You will also receive a contact lens prescription that designates the contact lens type, power, base curve (a shape matching the curvature of your eye), and diameter.    

Why do I need an exam for contact lenses?   

Contact lenses are classified as medical devices by the FDA, and proper fitting and prescription are essential to maintain eye health. By scheduling regular eye exams, we can closely monitor your eye health and make sure your lenses still meet your eyes’ requirements. Ensuring a proper fit for your contact lenses is also important for comfortable wear throughout the day.
