Appointment For Visual Examination In Fort Collins, CO

Eye exams for contact lens wearers, as well as regular eye exams, allow the specialist to review in detail the health of your eyes and the quality of your vision. The regular exam, approximately once a year, also allows the specialist to detect any changes that occur in your vision before it becomes a serious problem.

Full Routine Eye Exam

Whether you have 20-20 vision or wear glasses or contact lenses, it is important to have a periodic eye exam to keep your eyes and vision in the best possible condition. Normally these exams consist of:

  • Eye tests to determine refractive error and graduation.
  • Performing "cover tests" to check how both eyes work together.

Contact lens adaptation

Contact lenses are medical devices, so you will need a prescription to buy them and your specialist should make sure that the test you have been done to prescribe the use of contact lenses includes the adaptation of the lenses. In order to adapt contact lenses, consultation and measurement are required.

The specialist will ask about your lifestyle and preferences. Some contact lenses may be better for athletes with active lifestyles, for example, while others are more suitable for people who travel frequently and may occasionally need to sleep with their glasses on. Your specialist will also ask if you prefer to use colored contact lenses or disposable lenses.

 It is important to check that the lenses are well adapted to the eyes

If you are a contact lens wearer, it is important to check that the lenses are well suited to your eyes and your vision. In addition to an eye exam, the exam in the case of contact lens wearers also includes the adaptation of the lenses. Below we explain what these exams consist of.

Remember, the specialist is your best ally and is the one who knows exactly what your eyes need to be healthy and in perfect condition. Never stop seeing a professional when you observe or make changes to your eyes and vision.

As of Tuesday evening, March 17th, the CDC has recommended that all routine eye care be deferred until further notice, in order to slow the transmission of COVID-19 through our community. We will follow their recommendations and close our office to regular eye exams until further notice.

Please be assured that we are still available to triage all urgent and emergent issues as well as help you with routine matters during this challenging time.

What does this mean?

1) If you are scheduled for an annual eye examination our office will contact you to reschedule
2) If you need to replace glasses or contact lenses and need an extension on your prescription, please contact us and we will assist you in obtaining some until you can come in for a visit.
3) If you are running out of medication please contact us and we can transmit a refill electronically to your pharmacy.
4) If you have an ocular emergency we are, as always, available to help you at any time. Call us at 970-221-4811.
5) If you have an issue that cannot wait for an office visit, contact us and we will schedule a FaceTime, Skype or telephone appointment with one of our doctors. Medicare has temporarily relaxed its telehealth rules to allow this type of communication during the pandemic crisis. Other insurers may follow suit and allow for reimbursement of virtual care costs. The consultation must be initiated at your request.
6) During this period of social distancing and quarantine, we must all do our part by restricting activities outside the home except for getting medical care. Do not go to work, school, or public areas. Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.
7) Please remember that 80% of COVID-19 cases are mild and resolve within a week. However, if you feel your symptoms are worsening, call ahead before visiting your doctor’s office or emergency department and tell them you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the office protect themselves and other patients.

The CDC has many wonderful resources. Arming yourself and your family with clear information will help you avoid undue stress.

We have asked our staff to stay home until further notice to protect them, our patients, our city, our nation, and our planet. Despite the financial and emotional hardships this will cause, we ask every one of you to do the same.

Together we will weather this storm.

With sincerest wishes for your continued good health, we remain at your service,
