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 Orgain Family Vision in Hendersonville today.

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.

I agree with all the positive reviews below and would like to add one more reason to go there. They... are honest. Before I moved to the area, I was told by my provider that I needed cataract surgery. Dr Logan took one look and said I did not. He could have made some more money off of this and chose to be honest instead. All the staff there are great to work with, professional and pleasant. The glasses I get there are always good-looking and work perfectly for whatever I do, whether it's reading, computer or driving. I would highly refer them.

Dr. Smith is world-class, very patient, knowledgeable, and undoubtably has his patients well being a... s priority one. Even though my insurance company recently decided that Dr. Smith was not in network, I chose to stay with his practice. I get a very reasonable cash discount. Most importantly, I trust my eye health to be managed by Dr. Smith and not an insurance that dictates my vision based on the greed of shareholders.

After past visits to Sams Optical and what should be "America's Worst" instead of best, my family wa... s referred to Orgain Family Vision. Here we felt like actual patients and that our concerns were addressed appropriately instead of being rushed. The customer service provide was above excellent. Plus, we received rebates on our contacts which we had never received in the past at any other location!

I have been going to Dr Orgain since the early 80’s and each visit is always exceptional. I have h... is cell number and he has phoned in prescriptions even once as he was hiking the Grand Canyon. I now live south of Nashville but will continue to use Orgain because of the personal care and professionalism.
