How do I get contact lenses?
Contact lenses are prescribed by an eye care professional. This includes either an ophthalmologist (an M.D.), an optometrist (an O.D.), or a dispensing optician with special training in contact lens prescribing. Often, these professionals work together under one roof. Before prescribing contact lenses for you, your eye care professional will conduct a thorough examination. This exam will evaluate your eye health and assess your vision correction needs and then determine a host of factors: the type of lens, size and lens material, and the wear and replacement schedules that are best for you.
