At Shermin Lahijani OD, Hollywood Optometrist, we work diligently to meet all of our patient’s eye care needs. A contact lens eye exam helps us diagnose the condition of the patient’s eyes and determine the best contact lenses for each patient. During your visit to our eye center, we can discuss contact lens options to suit your needs, including hard-to-fit contacts. Our in-house laboratory means that you can get your prescription glasses or contact lenses quicker. We are here to help if you live in or around Echo Park, Westlake, Rampart, Silver Lake, or MacArthur Park and considering the switch from glasses to contact lenses.
What to Expect from a Contact Lens Exam
After determining your refractive errors during the comprehensive eye exam, our optometrists will work with you to see if contacts are ideal for your eye health. We will perform additional testing to determine the best prescription for you. We will also discuss some of the contact lens options we offer such as daily disposable, extended-wear, toric, and hard-to-fit contacts.
Hard to Fit Contacts
Finding contact lenses that both fit and feel comfortable is important. Patients with certain eye conditions can benefit from hard-to-fit contacts. Some of these conditions include:
- Dry eye syndrome
During your comprehensive eye exam, our optometrists will perform various tests to determine the proper contact lenses type and prescription. These are just some of the medical conditions that may require the need for hard-to-fit contacts.
After your visit to Shermin Lahijani OD, Hollywood Optometrist, we will help you decide which contacts will work best for you. This means that we will give you a trial fitting. You will go home and wear your new contact lenses for about a week. After trying them out, you will call our eye center to confirm your fitting. If you are not experiencing any problems with your contacts, we will be happy to order your annual supply of contacts. Our team will also show you how to use and care for your contacts properly. We have contact lens options for allergy sufferers, and for those who are interested in part-time or special occasion use.
