Innovative at-home contact eye exams for contact wearers.

You may not have known about contact eye exams, but if you wear contact lenses, you should be scheduling one in addition to your routine, comprehensive eye exam. At WebEyeCare, we have an innovative new vision exam you can take at home for a quick, painless Rx renewal, and all contact lenses dispensed by WebEyeCare are the exact same lenses as prescribed by your doctor. Best of all, they’re delivered to you in sealed containers direct from the manufacturer.

What’s the difference between a contact eye exam and a routine eye exam?

A routine eye exam and a contact lens eye exam are two different exams. If you choose contact lenses for your vision correction, a contact lens exam is necessary to ensure the lenses are fitting both eyes properly and that the eye health is not at risk.

Comprehensive Eye Exam

A comprehensive eye exam is a crucial step in caring for your overall health, and is important for everyone, whether you need vision correction or not. Your comprehensive eye exam is an opportunity for your doctor to review and check for signs of serious health conditions like hypertension and diabetes (yes, your doctor can see signs of diabetes from an eye exam). During a comprehensive eye exam, your doctor will look for signs of glaucoma, perform tests to check your vision sharpness, determine your prescription strength, examine how your eyes work together, and check the fluid pressure in your eyes. He or she may also dilate your eyes to see if you have any eye conditions or signs of other serious health conditions. This is how you can determine whether vision correction is necessary for you personally.

Contact Lens Eye Exam

A contact lenses eye exam, however, is different. If you wear or want to start wearing contacts, you need a contact lens exam as well as a comprehensive eye exam. During this exam, your doctor or optician will perform special tests to evaluate your vision with contacts; the first test will measure your eye surface to determine what size and type of contacts fit you best. Your doctor may also do a tear film evaluation to make sure you have enough tears to comfortably wear contacts, as eye moisture plays a large part in the comfort and safety of contact lenses.

What happens after getting your eye exam results?

With the results of those tests, your eye doctor can provide a contact lens prescription that is the right fit for your eyes. An eyeglass prescription is no substitute for a contact lens exam: an eyeglass prescription measures for lenses that are positioned approximately 12 millimeters from your eyes, while a contact lens prescription measures for lenses that sit directly on the surface the eye. An improper fitting or prescription of contacts can seriously damage the health of the eyes.

Once you have the correct fit and prescription for contacts, you can decide whether you want disposable contacts or extended wear, and if you want your contacts to be colored, giving you an opportunity to find the right style for your life. After testing out a trial pair of contacts for a few days, you'll need a follow-up exam to make sure you have adjusted to your new lenses.

Whether you wear glasses or contacts, it's good to get a yearly eye exam to see if you have new or existing vision problems, and if you need vision correction in addition to your contact eye exam.
