Contact Lens Exams
At Kennedy Vision Health Center, we personalize every aspect of your care to provide complete vision clarity tailored to your lifestyle and eye health. As part of this mission, our friendly doctors offer comprehensive contact lens eye exams to ensure you reap all the benefits of your contact lenses.
The Value of a Contact Lens Exam
If you want the option to wear contacts so you can still see clearly without the use of glasses, contact lens eye exams are imperative. These exams allow us to create a unique prescription for you, even if you have hard to fit eyes. Our contact lens exams also help us make sure your contacts are comfortable and fit just right, because ill-fitting lenses can lead to eye strain, blurry vision, and other issues.
How Are Contact Lens Exams Different?
Contact lens exams help us generate a completely different prescription for you than an eyeglasses prescription, because the corrective lenses sit directly on your eye. These exams also put a greater emphasis on your frontal eye health because that part of your eye is always touching your contacts. Before suggesting lenses for you, we’ll look for signs of conditions like dry eye and keratoconus, and ask if you’ve had previous ocular surgeries to inform our recommendations.
What to Expect from Your Contact Lens Exam

“I always have a great experience during my annual eye exam. The staff here is so friendly and makes you feel very welcome. I have been seeing Dr Traverse for many years and although thorough explains things in layman terms. It never feels like he is rushing to get you out the door.”

“I made an appointment here because it was in my VSP network and ended up LOVING it. The staff, from when you walk in the door to when you get to the exam room, are friendly, welcoming and kind. Dr. B is great, and I am happy to say I have new glasses & contacts with the RIGHT prescription for the first time in my 15+ years of wearing them! I actually helped one of my patients get an appointment after he broke his glasses on accident and he loved them as well.. Highly recommend!!”
