Discover the Freedom and Convenience of Contact Lenses

  • Need bifocal or multifocal contacts?
  • Rigid gas permeable or soft lenses?
  • Disposables, dailies or colored contacts?

Contact lenses give wearers a full field of focused vision no matter where you look. Because they move with your eyes, contacts help allow you to track action with sharp and clear peripheral vision. Moreover, if you lead an active lifestyle, contacts provide more freedom and flexibility to enjoy your favorite sports.

A contact lens exam will help us determine the perfect contact lens fit for your eyes and lifestyle!

What to Expect From Your Contact Lens Exam

  • Regular eye exam

    During your comprehensive eye exam your optometrist will check that your eyes are healthy and will test your vision to determine your contact lens prescription.

  • Contact lens consultation

    During your contact lens exam your optometrist will check for dry eye symptoms and consult with you to determine what type of contact lenses are the best fit for your lifestyle and vision needs.

  • Contact lens fitting

    For ideal vision correction and comfort, contact lenses must fit well. Your optometrist will examine the size and shape of your cornea and pupil to ensure the right fit.

  • Contact lens trial and follow-up

    Your optometrist will insert trial lenses and ask you to keep them on for 15-20 minutes to be sure the fit is comfortable and vision is clear. After a few days, you'll come in for a follow-up evaluation.


Where Can I Get a Contact Lens Exam?

The right contact lenses, carefully fitted and prescribed by your optometrist, can provide many benefits and prevent discomfort and eye disease.

Once you have determined the right contact lens, you can start enjoying the benefits and freedom of daily or regular contact lens wear.

We offer contact lens exams at our eye clinic and will help determine the best contact lenses for your needs and eye shape. Simply schedule your appointment by contacting EyeTX - Culebra in Far West Side today.

The appointment was quick and efficient and the turnaround time to pick up my glasses was reasonable... . I appreciated that I wasn't pressured into buying new frames when I just wanted to update the lenses in my current frames.

I brought in glasses (from an online store) that had a screw missing. The screw in them was too smal... l and barely touched the threads so it was inevitable. ANGELA helped me right away. She not only fixed them but got a screw fully threaded through the whole piece. There's no chance I'm losing a screw again. Great service!!!

Speechless! All I can say is WOW. Never in my 46 years of wearing glasses have I ever had such an ou... tstanding eye exam/visit. From scheduling to insurance to eyewear/contacts AWESOME! The staff is very nice and customer service is top notch. Brenda helped me and was so professional and awesome. Micheal was the optometrist who saw me and he was phenomenal! He explained everything every step of the way. He asked me my needs and wants and gave me options. He went above and beyond for my vision needs. There was another male at the front desk (I didn’t catch his name) who was very friendly and professional. Brenda knew my insurance benefits so I didn’t have to hassle calling to re-confirm. Not one mistake was made. I will continue to bring all of my business here. EyeTX Culebra, if any of you are reading this, just know you made my day. The exam rooms were clean and well stocked. Lots of glasses to choose from but I ended up getting contacts. I will be back and my family too!

In the last three years I have been to at least three different eyeglass centers. EyeTX is by far th... e best. The eye exam was done perfectly to match my vision problems. The frames were neither fancy nor nerdy. They fit my face perfectly. The staff was very helpful with all the details. There was no pressure on their part to decide on which frames I chose. I would highly recommend EyeTX to my friends and family. You need to create a commercial to advertise your excellent services.

Contact Lens Exams FAQs

Can dry eye sufferers wear contact lenses?

Usually, yes. While some types of contact lenses can aggravate symptoms of dry eye syndrome, such as eye dryness, redness and irritation, other contacts are perfectly suitable for dry eyes. Speak with an eye doctor near you regarding your dry eye symptoms, and they'll prescribe the perfect contact lenses for ultimate comfort.

Can a child wear contact lenses?

It's a case-by-case basis. Typically, eye doctors don’t prescribe contacts to children under the age of 11 or 12, though there are exceptions. Wearing contact lenses requires responsible care, including cleaning and disinfecting routines. Most teenagers can handle contact lens care if they’re motivated to wear contacts.

Do I need an eye exam and prescription for tinted contact lenses?

Yes! Even if you’re just using contacts to change the color of your eyes, you still need an eye exam and a prescription. Contact lenses are a medical device and require fitting by an eye doctor.
