Eye Exams with Our Optometrists in Richardson for Contact Lenses

While our eye exams can help detect common eye diseases like glaucoma, refractions are critical to measuring refractive errors such myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism or presbyopia. Contact lens type selection is then based on the shape of the eye, prescription, ocular health, and lifestyle. Recent advances in contact lens technology have made fitting hard-to-fit eyes easier.

Our refractions are performed using an automated phoropter system. An estimate of a patient’s prescription and corneal curvature is obtained by an autorefractor. Our doctors then fine tune this measurement along with the patient’s subjective opinion (which is better…1 or 2?) This makes the process of measuring a patient’s prescription much more accurate than with manual phoropters. All data measured by our doctors are then saved automatically and precisely into the patient chart.

Whether a patient is a candidate for soft lenses, rigid or specialty, a trial period begins for the patient to experiment with lenses prior to purchasing. This is to ensure that the doctor and patient are both satisfied with vision and fit!
