Contact Lens Exam
At Iconic Eyecare, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our Optometrists in Surrey. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, our Optometrists will discuss the variety of contact lens options with you to select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, the optometrist determines what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism depending on the error) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. Our optometrist will use a phoropter to take this measurement. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Surrey optometrist, call (604) 385-6396 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, the optometrist works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution. Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form. Contact lenses need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at (604) 385-6396 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.
What our patients say
Fantastic service! My teenage daughter and I both had eye exams and purchased new glasses. All the staff were friendly, knowledgable and helpful.
