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 The Eyecare Center in Bellevue today.

The EyeCare Center Bellevue is absolutely amazing with a world class admin team. I had a complex cas... e with my special type of contact lenses and Annabelle Scott really went out of her way and persisted to resolve the issue, while also giving me a smooth customer experience. Her relentless pursuit and knowledge made the difference in getting my accurate scleral contact lenses. The doctors and admin staff are very knowledgeable and will do everything to support you, with an explanation every step of the way. This was my 2nd time doing my annual exam here, and I will be coming back!

Christian (hopefully I got his name right) was freaking amazing. His customer service is on another ... level. He was super patient and explained everything to us. If you visiting this place, i highly recommend asking for Christian if you want outstanding customer service.

Recently moved to Bellevue and had to start looking for a new place for my annual eye checkup. Found... this place and I have no complaints about them. Dr. Jones and her staff were very friendly and patient. Dr. Jones educated me the difference between the contact lens brands and helped me save a little more on the contacts. Lots of parking spots in front of the building.

Was worried about blurriness in my left eye. They got me in within a few days. Dr. Lindberg did va... rious procedures to determine a little progression of pre-cataracts but not glaucoma or macular degeneration. Very confident in Dr. Lindberg and he has a pleasant, reassuring manner. Thanks!

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.
