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 Innovative Eyecare in West Oak Hill 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.

My recent visit to Innovative Eyecare, where I had the pleasure of being treated by Dr. Joel Trinida... d, was truly exceptional. From the moment I stepped into the clinic, I was greeted with warmth and professionalism by the staff, setting a welcoming tone for my appointment. Dr. Trinidad's expertise and attentiveness were immediately apparent. He took the time to listen to my concerns and thoroughly explain each step of the examination process, ensuring I felt comfortable and informed throughout. His knowledge and passion for optometry were evident, and I felt confident in his recommendations for my eye health. Not only was Dr. Trinidad incredibly skilled, but he also possessed a genuine care for his patients' well-being.

Very professional staff and incredibly kind. Glasses are often thought of as an accessory that hinde... rs confidence and self esteem, but my optician helped me pick out frames that made me feel stylish and professional. Thank you, innovative eye care staff!

I enjoyed my visit at Innovative eye care. Every encounter was smooth from the check in process, the... tech, and finally Dr.Joel Trinidad. He was informative when explaining my Optos scans, patient, and had great bedside manner.

It’s been 15 years since I’ve had my eyes checked out so I was a bit apprehensive about going. T... hat being said I had a great visit with Dr. Trinidad! Appointment set up was easy. Very little wait time. And Dr. Trinidad was calming and thorough. Really made it easy, painless, and got all my questions answered to a great detail. Recommend!

Been a customer around 20 years, but this was the first time as a retiree w/o vision insurance. Cami... lle patiently and thoroughly educated me about my many options and found ways to bring down the cost of my glasses. Superb customer care and assistance! They are fortunate to have someone of her caliber on the team and I'm so grateful she helped me!!

I have long been a patient of Dr. Dan McQueen and have always experienced excellent care from Dr. Mc... Queen and Innovative Eyecare, but I wanted to commend his caring staff, especially Monique. I live outside of Austin and needed 2 prescriptions filled for an eye inflammation. Monique spent the better part of the morning assisting me in finding a pharmacy nearby that had both medicines in stock so I did not have to drive to multiple locations. Her initiative and thoughtfulness are so appreciated, I highly recommend Innovative Eyecare.

I have been a customer of Innovative Eyecare now for 2 years, and I have had nothing but GOOD experi... ences every time - from the front desk personnel, to the Optometrist, to the associates helping with picking out my frames. However, I must say that this last visit was TRULY an amazing experience of "good customer service" by Melissa Hernandez. Melissa went out of her way days later to double-check my insurance coverage for my purchase because something didn't seem right to her, and I am SO THANKFUL that she decided to investigate a little further - because it did help with cost for my purchase. To have someone call you days later because they took it upon themselves to ensure that their customer was getting the right price says a lot about the kind of customer service Melissa wants to give to those who come in to Innovative Eyecare! Thanks again to the entire team for always putting on a smile and making me feel welcomed and comfortable every time I visit. Blessings!

Very good dr and staff
- Nov. 16, 2021
It was so easy to get a timely appointment and fill out forms as a new patient, with helpful reminde... rs and resources and onsite team communication along the way. It was very safe (masks, freshly sanitized equipment), and fast BUT it was also very thorough. Dr. McQueen and the team were incredibly helpful explaining each step of the exam, what to keep in mind / look out for in general with eye health, and walking through options for contact lens types for my specific needs. It was very efficient but very individualized care!

Dr. Collins was the most attentive and diligent eye doctor I’ve seen. I was also helped by Camille... and she was equally as helpful, kind, and pleasant! Would definitely return for future eye exams.

Dr. Dan McQueen is an excellent and thorough optometrist. I've seen him for over 30 years and have a... lways felt cared for, never rushed, and information is conveyed clearly. Highly recommend Innovative Eyecare.

The Staff was very friendly and professional. The sign in went smoothly. My appointment was at ... 1:30 p.m. and I got there at 12:30 p.m. I used a Medical Transportation System and that's why I arrived so early. I was called back at 1:20...took all the eye tests...eye exam performed and at 2:00 p.m....I was looking at frames. So at 2:15 p.m., I was waiting for my ride back to my residence. I have been going to Innovative Eyecare for over seven years!!!
