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 Owens Optometrics in New Holland today.

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.

I went in to Owens today for a comprehensive eye exam and I can easily say that this is one of the b... est Optometrist offices I have ever been to. The staff was friendly and courteous, the wait time was minimal, and it’s clear that they try to keep the latest and highest tech equipment available for their use. Dr Kauffman did my exam and was polite, personable, and incredibly thorough. He answered all of the questions I had and made sure I understood exactly what was going on inside my eyes and what each test was for. 10/10 experience, and I will continue to visit them for years to come.

Excellent service provided here! I came to establish myself as a new patient, and I am severely myop... ic needing a high prescription for both glasses and contacts. I received a thorough eye exam including screening for glaucoma and macular degeneration, had my options presented to me clearly, and had all of my questions answered, about my eye health and about cost of services. I was seen by Dr. Strybos, an intern, and another learning practitioner, all three of whom contributed positively to my care. 10/10 would recommend this practice.

I highly recommend Dr. Strybos and the team at Owens Optometrics! The photos they take of the blood... vessels/nerves of the eyes are very fascinating, and Dr. Strybos takes time to review and explain them in detail, as well as compare to previous and discuss changes and risks (the vessels show a lot, such as stress from high blood pressure or indication of high blood sugar, etc.). I have learned a great deal from our conversations and refer my friends and family to him!

The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had my exam at a different place of business. Due to pr... oblems with my glasses/lenses not being correct twice at the other place of business I called their office and was helped by Kara who was so helpful in all aspects of getting me into a pair of glasses that I love.
