Contact lens fitting: - Hawaii News Now - KGMB and KHNL

Contact lens fitting:

Special testing is done to determine the best fitting contact lenses for your eyes.  A measurement is taken of the front curve of the cornea for a maximum fit. Because contact lenses are medical devices worn on the eye, it is important the health of the cornea and eyelids are evaluated to ensure complications do not occur with lens wear.  Usually, a trial lens is given at the time of fitting to be worn for a week.  A follow-up visit is scheduled a week later to check on how well your eyes can tolerate the contact lens and to check for any problems that are experienced during the trial period.
