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 Fulghum Optometry in Lakeshore today.

My first visit was awesome! I found the perfect, more personal, convenient optometry office. I final... l decided to opt out of the larger, chained optometry offices. The front staff were welcoming and friendly. Dr. Fulghum totally AWESOME!!! He made my day with his humorous and charming personality!

Dr. Fulghum and his staff have taken care of our family's vision needs for many, many years and has ... always provided us with the very best care. Always concerned about our vision needs as the years went by. His referrals have also been top notch whenever additional specialty treatments were needed. We have always felt that our care and treatments have been the very best available. Most medical appointments are not the friendliest experiences we have, but this is not the case here. Always greeted with a smile and pleasant atmosphere. Thanks for all your hard work!

He is a very good person and a caring man. He always makes the visits fun and he shows an interest i... n you and your family. Okay Paul I wrote what you asked me to now when do I get paid? I’m just kidding on the last part but I told him I was going to put that in when I wrote his review to keep him humble. All kidding aside he’s a great doctor and an even better man.

I've been seeing Dr. Fulghum for over 30 years, starting with my recovery from major eye trauma and ... surgery. For over 3 decades Dr. Fulghum and his office have been excellent in their service and friendly in every interaction with me. Dr. Fulghum genuinely cares about his patients and their vision. I cannot recommend him more highly to anyone who is looking for an optometrist. He is a great optometrist!

I have been very pleased. Dr. Fulghum listens to your concerns, asks about your vision needs, and ta... kes the time individually with each patient. Very small office, only the one doctor and a few staff, but very accommodating.

I needed to get a piece of metal removed from my eye. The Dr. did an excellent job. My normal ophtha... lmologist was not in on Friday and he took me in as a new patient. I had a very pleasant visit.

Lovely staff! Great relaxing place. Dr. Fulghum is awesome. Scheduled a visit in under 24 hours, had... little to no wait. Very comfortable place. Is now my go to for all eye care.

I liked the experience I had at this doctors office one to two years ago. I had purchased my first p... air of bi-focal lenses and boy were they much needed. I do not wear glasses often so I must say I've worn these maybe 20 times since I've owned them. The only problem I have is the left side of the frame broke loose at the hinge. I am very careful with my glasses and always keep them in a case when not in use. This should never have broken. I tried to solder the two parts together but no luck.

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.
