Not Just a Contact Lens Exam

A contact lens exam at Hoff Optometry is a truly comprehensive eye exam. You'll receive the same in-depth assessment of your visual acuity as you would for our eye exams for eyeglasses. There's no need to have one eye exam appointment for glasses and another for a contact lens exam. Our careful assessment of your eyes will make it easier to find the perfect contact lens for your individual needs. It will also make it easy to choose spectacles to complement your contact lenses if you wish.

If your vision isn't as clear as you'd like, a comprehensive contact lens exam will measure the exact amount of refractive error that requires correction. Contact lenses can correct common visual errors like astigmatism, farsightedness, or nearsightedness. Dr. Hoff will evaluate your eyesight by measuring the amount of improvement you see while a series of test lenses are placed in your line of sight. It's an easy and painless procedure, made even easier by the friendly and competent staff at Hoff Optometry.

Choosing Between Contact Lenses and Eye Glasses

Dr. Hoff can help you decide if contact lenses are right for you. If you have problems with dry eyes or allergies, you may find that eyeglasses are a better solution to your vision correction problem. Dr. Hoff can also recommend different types of contact lenses to accommodate different users. Not all contact lenses are identical, and with the improvements in the eye care industry, we can help you find a suitable lens even if you have sensitive eyes.

During your contact lens exam, Dr. Hoff will be able to recommend lenses that are designed to be changed every day, once a week, once every two weeks, or even once a month. Bifocal contact lenses are now available as well, making them a great alternative to glasses for people who need help seeing close up and far away.

Expert Fitting

Contact lenses must fit perfectly in order to work well and feel comfortable. There are many different types of lenses on the market, including soft contacts and rigid gas-permeable contacts. Dr. Hoff will use his many years of experience and training to make sure your new contact lenses are the best possible type for your eyes, and that they fit you perfectly.

Cosmetic Lenses

Picking out contact lenses can be as fun as choosing designer eyewear. Advances in contact lens design have produced variations that can change your eye color if you'd like to try out a fresh, new look. Cosmetic lenses are also great at equalizing variations in eye color to produce a more natural look.
