Vision Testing for Contact Lens Wear
Our vision tests, performed by a licensed optician, help determine how well you see and what corrective lenses may be best for you.
Our thorough contact lens vision tests your visual acuity and refractive error to determine what contact lens prescription you may need. We will also assess the health of your eyes to determine if you can safely wear contact lenses.
From there, we begin our fitting process. We will recommend the best prescription contact lenses for your eyes and vision, and you can check to see if they feel comfortable. If your vision isn’t as clear as you’d like, or you’re not finding comfort in your lenses, we can try another type.
After you’ve tried out the contact lenses, you will return to our office for a checkup to ensure they are comfortable and working well for you.
We provide contact lens vision testing for adults from ages 19–64. For anyone younger, older, or requiring special examination, please see your doctor for a prescription. We welcome you back to Milano Optics with your valid prescription to shop our selection of glasses, sunglasses, and contact lenses!
Contact Lens Types
There are many different types of contact lenses available! Our experienced contact lens fitter can talk to you about your lifestyle, how long you plan to wear contacts each day, and your vision goals. All of these factors, along with an eye health assessment, can help determine what type of contact lenses may be best suited for you and your eyes.
We dispense daily, biweekly, and monthly contact lenses in single-vision, multifocal, spheric, or astigmatic varieties to help you achieve the clearest vision possible.
Daily & Extended-Wear Lenses
- Daily contact lenses are an excellent option for someone looking for the most comfort possible, with the ease of discarding the lenses at the end of each day. When you wake up, you open a new package of lenses to wear for the day. No rinsing or storing overnight is needed.
- Biweekly lenses last for 14 days. At night, you store them in a solution and container and use them again the next day. These lenses are considered a happy-medium for comfort and ease of use.
- Monthly contact lenses are similar to biweekly lenses, except you replace them after 30 days.
Soft & RGP Contacts
Contact lenses come in a variety of materials to choose from. The 2 most popular types are:
- Soft contacts—made of soft plastic polymers that are very flexible and form to the front of the eye. They are often easiest to adjust to.
- Rigid gas-permeable contacts—made of oxygen-permeable harder plastic. These contacts hold their shape and provide crisp, clear vision. They may take longer to adjust to than soft contact lenses.
