Before you schedule an eye exam with a family eye doctor on our optometry team, consider whether or not you will also require a contact lens fitting by an optometrist in Clarksville, TN, at our practice. At Sites Vision Clinic, we offer this service as part of our eye care services. Let us know when you call that you're also interested in getting contact lenses so we can allot enough time during your appointment to complete it. As you prepare for your visit, it may help know what to expect during your contact lens fitting.
Routine Eye Exam
We might go through your routine eye exam before completing a contact lens fitting. The parts of the eyes may be checked for overall health. Then, we might use our tools, equipment, and professional methods to check your vision.
After your exam is complete, an optometrist in Clarksville on our team, who might also be a pediatric eye doctor if you have little ones around, will take all the findings and ensure you're a good candidate for contacts. If you are, then you we will move to the next part of the exam.
Reviewing Options & Taking Measurements
Next, an eye doctor on our optometry team will review the types of contacts available and which would be best for your eyes. Different brands may be reviewed.
We may take measurements of the size of your pupil and the curve of your cornea so that the proper fitting lenses can be ordered.
Start with a Trial
We might give you one or more trial pairs of lenses to try out during your appointment. Our staff might also instruct you on how to correctly put them in, take them out, clean them, and store and care for them.
Follow-Up & Ordering
If everything goes smoothly, we may order your lenses and send you home with the trial pair. On your return visit, we can check to ensure your experience is going well and that the health of your eyes is where it should be. As long as everything checks out, you can be sent on your way with your new, properly fitting contact lenses.
