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 Tanglewood Family Eyecare in Chagrin Falls today.

Great experience! Dr. Mackanos always does an incredible job explaining her process. I’ve been wea... ring glasses since before grade school and have NEVER had a doctor even attempt to explain my eye exam to me. She does it in a succinct and thoughtful manner, showing her knowledge of the eye and her respect for her patients.

I wish I knew the name of the technician who fits the glasses because I would love to give her a sho... ut out. She helped me to find the first pair of glasses I have ever liked. She was thoughtful, patient, knowledgeable and gave excellent feedback. She really helped me to find comfortable frames and was so great to inform me as to why certain ones might pinch or bother me. I took my 7 yr old daughter there to get her first pair and she got that same fantastic experience. They have so many really pretty frames too! The whole office staff was incredibly kind and welcoming and they all came out to tell my DTR how cute she looked in her glasses. They gave her stickers and let her pick a toy. It was such a positive experience for a kid who was not happy about getting glasses. She left on cloud nine and was so excited to come back and pick up her new glasses. Tanglewood Family Eye Care is awesome! ❤️

Erin is an exceptional eye Doctor. I just changed from a doctor near my older home, and I am beyond ... happy I did. She is very sweet, caring, and very informative. She found an issue in my one eye, due to sun damage. I've already ordered my new sunglasses. She has very up to date machines that really help with seeing your eyes as a whole. Will not go anywhere else, nor should you.

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.
