Did you know that an eyeglass prescription is no substitute for a contact lens prescription? In fact, the two are very different. An eyeglass prescription measures for lenses that are positioned in a frame in front of your eyes. A contact lens prescription measures for lenses that sit directly on the surface the eye. Furthermore, an improperly fitting contact lens can damage the health of your eyes.

Contact Lens Fitting
Contact lenses come in different shapes and sizes. This is why it is important to have an optometrist properly fit contact lenses. Whether you want contact lenses for everyday wear, occasional wear for special events or sports, or even if you want to enhance the colour of your eyes, your optometrist can help you determine the best option!
During contact lens fittings, optometrists perform special tests to select the healthiest and best contact lens for your eyes. The first test step is to determine what size and type of contacts are best for you. Optometrists may also do a tear film evaluation to make sure you have enough tears to comfortably wear contacts. With the results of those tests, optometrists can provide a contact lens prescription that is the right fit for your eyes.
