At Lone Star Vision, we are proud to offer our patients a wide range of services, including contact lens exams.

In this post, we will answer some of the frequently asked questions about contact lens exams to help put your mind at ease. We offer same-day appointments and have a walk-ins welcome policy at our eye care clinic in Beaumont, so feel free to come by.
Do I Need a Special Type of Eye Exam for Contact Lenses?
If you want to wear contacts, you will need to have a contact lens exam in addition to a regular eye exam. This is because our optometrist needs to take special measurements to prescribe the right type and size of contact lenses for your eyes.
What Is a Contact Lens Exam?
During a contact lens exam, Dr. Johnson will take measurements of your eyes to determine the right type and size of contact lens for you. We will also assess your tear film quality and make sure that your eyes are healthy enough to wear contacts. Once we have all of the necessary information, we will prescribe the right type of contact lenses for you and show you how to insert, remove, and care for them.
How Often Do I Need a Contact Lens Exam?
We recommend that patients have a contact lens exam at least once per year, even if they feel like their lenses are still fitting well. This is because your eyes will change over time, which may require you to switch to a different type or size of lenses.
