What To Expect During a Contact Lens Fitting

Now that the standard eye exam has been completed, your eye doctor will need additional information before you can be fitted for contact lenses. You may be asked general questions about your lifestyle and preferences regarding contact lenses, such as whether you might want to change your eye color with colored contacts or if you're interested in other  options such as daily disposables or extended wear contacts.

Your eye doctor may question you about how you might want to correct vision problems related to aging. At about age 40 or maybe older, you will develop a condition known as presbyopia that decreases your ability to focus  clearly at near. To correct presbyopia, your eye doctor may offer you the choice of monovision, bifocal or multifocal.  Usually, you will be required to see your eye doctor a few times before a final contact lens prescription can be determined.
