Contact Lens Exam

In addition to traditional prescription eyeglasses, many patients enjoy the benefits and convenience of contact lenses.

Because contact lenses work differently than regular eyeglasses and are inserted directly into the eye, your optometrist must evaluate and measure additional elements of the eye prior to recommending and prescribing a specific type of contact lenses.

At Shamrock Family Eye Care, our optometrists prescribe all major brands of soft and rigid (hard) contact lenses. Within these brands there are many different types of lenses, and your prescription will be written for a specific lens that matches your eyes, vision needs, and overall lifestyle.


What to Expect During Your Contact Lens Exam

Routine eye exams do not include the evaluation, diagnosis and fitting of contact lenses and a separate fee will apply for all Contact Lens Exams.

Shamrock is committed to the highest level of contact lens care and service. Following is a list of benefits included with each exam:

Diagnostic Lens Fitting– Contact lens eye health evaluation, contact lens design and calculations, additional discussion and education, trial contact lenses and all follow-up visits during the trial period.

Vision Guarantee – – Any additional contact lens vision related visits within 3 months of the initial comprehensive exam are included (if a medical problem caused the vision change, this will be discussed and a medical charge will apply).

Contact Lens Prescription Guarantee – – If your prescription changes for any reason, we will exchange ALL contact lenses purchased from Shamrock for the new prescription (yes, even if the boxes are open). We will also provide free replacements for any damaged or lost contact lenses.

We work with most Vision insurance plans and the fees vary, depending on the type of Contact Lens Exam. Insurances may offer co-pays or discounts for contact lens exams. Contact lens prescriptions are valid for up to 1 year from the date of your contact lens examination.

For contact lens wearers, the proper care, cleaning and storage of lenses is extremely important. Prior to putting your contact lenses in your eyes or removing them, be sure to wash and dry your hands before touching the contacts or your eyes. Contact lenses need to be cleaned regularly and carefully and soaked overnight in a multi-purpose solution to keep the lenses from drying out.

Always use a clean contact lens case for storing contacts when not in use, and replace the lens case quarterly or more often. Be sure to clean the case after each use and always use fresh lens solution when returning your contact lenses to storage. To ensure proper eye health and the lifespan of your contact lenses, follow your optometrist’s recommendations for handling, cleaning and disposing of contact lenses (as directed based on the type of lenses you wear).
