Dilation & Eye Exams

Why do I have to have a contact lens evaluation if I already wear contact lenses?
All prescriptions have expiration dates because a prescription that may be right for you one year can be harmful to you the next. Our bodies and eyes are constantly in flux as we age. A contact lens evaluation for an established contact lens wearer is to evaluate the tissue’s response to contact lens wear and make appropriate recommendations to maintain the health and well-being of your eyes.
What is the difference between my glasses prescription and contact lens prescription?
Your glasses prescription power is designed to sit 12mm in front of your eyes. Your contact lens prescription power is designed to sit directly on the surface of the eyes. For many people, this can cause their glasses and contact lens prescription powers to be very different. Additionally, due to the different plastics and molds utilized to make each lens is unique, your contact lens prescription must indicate the brand of contact lens, the base curve, and diameter.
Why does a contact lens prescription expire after 1 year for some people and 2 years for other people?
Eye Health! Here at City of Vision Eye Care, we care a great deal about the health of your eyes. Contact lenses can be a wonderful part of life, but they carry with them hidden dangers that can lead to blindness both quickly and slowly at the same time. A 1-year prescription expiration helps ensure that your contact lenses are not starting early signs of eye damage that are not detected during your routine examination. While some states allow a contact lens prescription to go 2 years before expiring, we follow the guidelines of medical doctors who specialize in eye care who recommend a 1-year prescription to prevent long term eye damage before it’s too late.
