What is "Dilation": Do I have to do it?

No, dilation is not absolutely necessary with every eye exam, but it is highly recommendable. A dilated eye exam is an important part of a comprehensive evaluation of the health of the eye. During this portion of the exam, we'll measure your eye pressure and use drops that will allow the doctor to see posterior structures of the eye. This deeper examination will take 20-30 minutes extra. You will be blurry for an hour or two before the drops wear off so some patients may bring a driver.



Do I get a prescription for glasses if I get a contact lens exam?

Yes, all contact lenses eye exams come with a comprehensive exam that also includes a prescription for glasses.



What if the prescription is wrong?

During your eye exam we take extra time and care to ensure that the prescription you have on hand is the most comfortable and suitable for you and your needs. When a new prescription is received or an update is made, most patients typically take a few weeks to adjust to the change. Younger patients or fast learners can adapted to new glasses more quickly.
