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 Memorial Eye Center - Eldridge in Energy Corridor 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.

My mother-in-law doesn’t wear glasses nor have an optometrist. She scratched her eye and they imme... diately agreed to see her. She got exactly the help she needed as opposed to waiting in an ER to likely still not see the right specialist. Thank you! She definitely will be a return customer for regular care and we really appreciate the help.

I needed new eye glasses, but I wanted to try some place new that was close to my home. I located Me... morial Eye Center on Eldridge near the I-10. From the time we walked in to the time we walked out the service was great. No sale pressure, friendly atmosphere and treated with respect. The eye examine went well, and they checked for everything, which I needed them to do. The price for glasses were reasonable, but the lens and a few other added things could be expensive. Overall, I would recommend Memorial Eye Center. Ask for Vanessa. Spider webs need to be clean up in the exam room behind the door and in the corners.

I would highly recommend Dr John Tavares. I have been visiting him for the last 3 years. He is highl... y professional and take time to examine and explain each step in simple terms. I did have some issues with my prescription specs which led to delays. However the new Manager Ms Alicia has improved the response with auto updates for pick up by text and email. Overall a very good experience at Memorial eye centre.

I missed my yearly eye appointment at the Eldridge location due to the Harvey flooding. I was able t... o go to another location for my reading glasses that Dr. Tavares (in previous yearly eye exams said would come with age). I returned to the Eldridge location and the service I received from reception to Dr. Porter (my first time seeing her) to opting for a 2nd pair of readers and selecting frames was impressive. The level of service I received was a definite reminder of why I choose to go the Memorial Eye at Eldridge. Outstanding service that will have you referring family and friends for great eye care.

I have been coming here over 20 years. Eye exam is always efficient and thorough . I love the per... sonnel especially Dr. Porier and Vanessa. Just picked up my new glasses and love them. Great fit. I recommend them to friends always.

I was leaving town on business with very little notice and was almost out of daily wear contacts. I... was afraid I wasn't going to be able to get in for an exam to renew my prescription of contacts in time. Thankfully, Memorial Eye found me an opening at a different branch than the one I normally go to. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Everyone seemed very professional and the appointment was quick and easy. I am very grateful and would have no qualms recommending either branch to friends or family. My only gripe is the price of contacts; although, as bad as my vision is, I guess it’s a small price to pay for clear sight.
