Contact lenses are a medical device worn directly on the eye to provide compensating vision correction. Because of this, it is necessary to properly assess the contact lens fit and the effect of the lens on the health of the eye every year. We also analyze the shape of your eye, its tendency for dryness, the overall prescription, and lifestyle needs in order to select the ideal lens.

1. How old does my child need to be in order to be able to wear contact lenses?
There is no minimum age to wear contact lenses. There are situations where contacts are the best option for correction — even babies can be prescribed contacts! Typically young children need assistance by a parent or guardian in order to properly and safely insert and remove contacts, which we would help train them to do. If contacts are desired by the parent or child for cosmetic reasons or for sports, we recommend contacts when the child is mature enough to follow proper care and lens hygiene. We only fit younger children in daily disposable contact lenses in order to preserve excellent eye health.
2. Are contact lenses included in a routine eye exam?
No. Since contact lenses are a medical device worn directly on the eye, it involves a more complex evaluation and assessment of eye health and lens fit and prescription, which is not covered by a routine eye exam. Some vision plans give discounts on the contact lens exam, but none cover the contact lens exam in-full. Contact lens exam pricing depends on a variety of factors: new vs. established wearer, simple vs. complex (astigmatism/multifocal), soft vs. specialty lenses, no change vs. upgraded lenses, etc. Our doctor and staff will be able to explain which exam you will need after discussing your individual needs.
