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 EyeTx - Atascosa in Pleasanton today.

This was my first visit to this location I normally make the trip to San Antonio. After getting reco... mmended by a coworker I decided to try it out. I am glad I did, the staff at the front desk were friendly and professional. Dr. Vielma was very professional and helpful when testing my eyes. He showed me what my new lenses would look like and allowed me to see the chart with them and it definitely made a huge difference compared to my current script. Staff helped me try to find frames and also helped get me the best price. I was told my glasses would be arriving in 2 weeks and I actually got them within 6 days. They came with a hard case, a bottle of lens cleaner and a cloth wipe.

I had an eye emergency—I embedded a microscopic piece of glass in my eye—and was unable to see o... ut of that eye, in severe pain, and scared. Losing my vision is one of my greatest fears. I called EyeTx - Atascosa and despite being fully booked on a Friday, they worked me in. When I arrived, they took me right back and never made me feel like an inconvenience or a work-in. Everyone was knowledgable and efficient. Above and beyond that, they were caring and empathetic. I would strongly recommend letting them take care of your eyes and your vision. Well done, EyeTx, well done.

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.
