A contact lens fitting is a specific eye exam for patients who wear or want to wear contact lenses. Along with a comprehensive contact lens eye exam, you will receive a special fitting session during which a doctor will ensure that your new lenses fit correctly and your vision is optimized.

If you need contact fitting in Baton Rouge, the Eye Specialists of Louisiana can help. Our advanced eye exams include diagnostic trial lens fitting sessions so that you can achieve and maintain clear vision for years to come.

What to Expect During Your Contact Fitting Appointment

During your appointment, we’ll provide you with a set of trial contact lenses so that you can practice wearing them for safety, comfort, and optimal vision. We’ll also discuss a trial period, after which we will follow-up to check the performance of your lenses and make sure that your eyes are adjusting properly.

What type of contact lenses are best for you? There are many types on the market, from paragon CRT lenses to soft lenses and multifocal lenses. We encourage you to talk about your lens preferences and options. It’s also an excellent time to talk about your lifestyle, so our doctors can help determine the best type of contact lenses for your home and work life.

Along with discussing your lifestyle and preferences, the doctor will take measurements of your eyes. We use advanced diagnostic technology to take measurements, including the curve and diameter you’ll need for lenses. In addition, the doctor will conduct a tear film evaluation to ensure that your eyes produce enough moisture to handle the contacts.

Instructions and Trial Period

Your eye health is important to us. We want you to learn how to live life comfortably with your new contact lenses. During the fitting appointment, the doctor or tech will also provide you with clear instructions on how to wear and clean your new contacts.

Once the doctor determines the best type of contacts for your needs and takes proper measurements, he or she will order your contacts for you. In the meantime, you’ll be provided with a pair of test contacts so that you can wear them for about a week as a trial run.
