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 Alvernon Optical - Casas Adobes in Tucson today.

This last Saturday was my 1st time coming to Alvernon Optical. I came here because I followed Dr. C... arol Schulte who I used to see at a different organization. Dr. Schulte Is a wonderful physician who is consistently very thorough and personable. She took time to go over the involved anatomy with my problem, and make great recommendations. Dina, the Optician, was the highlight of my visit there. She also is very personable, has a wonderful warm personality, and was very professional and thorough. Dina helped guide me to make the right choices for my lenses and frames. She was an absolute joy. I highly recommend Alvernon Optical on North Oracle for your vision and eye wear needs. Please go see Dr. Schulte and Dina. Your eyes will love you.

Dr Carol was warm hearted, thorough and a great educator. I have some complex issues which she addre... ssed in an empathetic manner. Definitely plan on seeing her again next year.

Carol Schulte is amazing! She explained everything very thoroughly and took the time out to show me ... diagrams and models of the eye to explain my eye health. She also asked if I had any questions and waited patiently while I thought of some and I felt very heard. Never have I had that at an exam, usually I'm rushed out right away. The staff were very nice and gentle as well. Best practice I've been to in years!

Just had another great annual eye exam with Dr. Carol Schulte. I appreciate that she asks questions ... about how my eyes have been over the past year and doesn’t assume that the computer predicted prescription is correct. She is compassionate about the frustrations of aging eyes and how they can change annually and offers cost-effective solutions.

Level of service and frames inventory was great

I've been a long time patient at the Oracle location and I love that the staff makes me feel welcome... and they are excited to help me shop for frames. It's much more personal experience than the corporate and warehouse locations.

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.
