Contact Lens Eye Exams
Opticians in Toronto, Ontario
Comprehensive eye examinations are extremely important for contact lenses wearers. This exam will help ensure that corneas are healthy and to allow you to wear contact lenses for as long as possible.
Even if you do not experience any discomfort with your contact lenses and you feel that your vision hasn't changed, your doctor will check for signs of contact lens related changes to the cornea and inner surface of the eyelid. Some of the more serious yet asymptomatic changes which result from prolonged contact lens wear include blood vessel growth into the cornea, clouding of the cornea, changes to the internal surface of the eyelid to name a few. If not detected early, these conditions can permanently alter the tissue, the vision, and one's ability to wear contact lenses. These conditions can be caused by poor fitting lenses, over-wear, poor compliance with disposal schedules and or cleaning regimens.
