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 Eyes Of The World - City Park West in City Park West today.

I really appreciate the comfortable environment Eyes of the World provides. They also don't pressure... you into buying contacts or glasses from them. But I recommend you do. They do a great job. There is a good selection of frames and had options that didn't break the bank. They did recommend a higher end contact, but also gave me options to lower cost ones.

My husband and I had the best experience at "Eyes of The World". Being a Denverite I used to walk do... wn your streets from school and I was raised in City Park West. My husband 's roots are in Denver, and he loved the comfortable feel of a historic building and the motif. We will highly recommend Eyes of The World, you have the best professionals, kind staff, and knowledgeable staff as well. Thank you "Eyes of The World".

I always have very friendly experiences at Eyes of the World and feel that they take good care of me... and my eyes. (My only suggestion is that you take a minute or two to answer your reviewers individually, not just cutting and pasting the same message.)

The entire staff here are amazing. Great attitude and most importantly very transparent about what m... y vision insurance could cover. It's very helpful when the staff are honest because it helps me make informed decisions about my exams and my eye materials.

Great team here! My husband and son see Dr L and I saw Dr K, both of the ladies are excellent at wha... t they do. The exam process was painless and I was relieved they quickly pin pointed my needs. The frame fit staff did a great job getting me through the selection process with glasses that fit me and my needs. Personalized Adjustments when I picked them up to make sure they are the perfect.

Athena was great- she helped me select frames I am very pleased with. I was not looking forward to s... hopping for frames because I can be so picky. She made it a pleasure with her buoyant spirit and great personality... I got a cool pair of Ray Ban frames. She also got me the best price with my benefits, in house benefits and even a rebate from the manufacturer. So for me , it was a highly beneficial experience!

I’ve been going to Eyes of the World ever since living in Denver. Really excellent care team here!... Dr. Lachenman is a fantastic optometrist: very thorough, considerate, and clear. I have referred several people to her because she provides such comprehensive care, and she understands the insurance side as well; not all optometrists make sure their patients know about medically necessary contacts if their prescriptions qualify, but Dr. Lachenman is great about this. The rest of the staff are very efficient and friendly people. Optician Jesse Vega is extremely knowledgeable about glasses hardware and lenses, and also great with navigating vision insurance benefits. Overall a very positive care experience.

The whole process, through eye testing to the provision of new product was efficient and helpful.

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.
