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 Omni Vision - Potranco in Far West Side today.

Very helpful and quick. The doctor was super knowledgeable and actually wanted to teach me what was ... going on with my eyes. that was a first for me. I will for sure come back. My only small complaint and its not the staff or doctors fault is i am still waiting on my glasses to come in. 2-3 weeks is a long time.

Great experience. Omni Vision had last minute appointment availability, even when I needed to resche... dule the night before. Their on-line scheduling is also very user-friendly. The best part is the staff. From the front office staff to the optometrist...they are professional, courteous, friendly and have outstanding customer service. They treat you with the upmost respect, explain everything in layman's terms amd make sure your needs are met. Thank you for the great service!

Omni Vision @ the 9218 Potranco location is my preferred location. All of the staff are friendly, ki... nd & informative, we never felt rushed, or uncomfortable. Too often you enter a facility for appointments & get the sense the employees are angry just by the sight of another human beings presence. So Bravo to Omni Vision for selecting great staff. We met Dr. Sundip Patel for the first time & again exceptional experience. Too often we leave reviews when the experience is unsatisfactory & forget to honor ppl when they do a great job. Dr. Patel was engaging, informative, explained the process & objective; he took his time throughout the examination without flipping the settings so fast you become confused what is what; too often I leave my eye appointments knowing I guessed my way through the exam, then your contacts & glasses are terrible bc you & your doctor wasn’t on the same page. So I appreciated the unorthodox explanations & suggestions in maintaining our vision. Great job!

The military sent me off-base for my annual exam and I’m so glad I found this place!! Dr. Garza wa... s amazing! She was all business at first, but she really took her time explaining why I was having certain vision issues and she gave me several options when choosing how to deal with them. I’ve been wearing glasses my whole life and this was a Top 3 exam because there was so much education. I have a lot of questions, if you just wanna get in and out, I’m sure she could do that too! When she finished with me, she handed me off to George who was also patient with me as I asked 1,001 questions. I didn’t get the technician’s name who helped me out at the beginning, but she was very kind too! Just be aware that there’s only a 5-minute grace period, so don’t be late!!

first time here and will be returning. Dr. Marquez is very thorough, and extremely patient. the staf... f is very nice. I'm very picky and chose like 6 different lenses to try on. but the staff grabbed one for me and i ended up with the one he selected. He just knew which one would work for me. i left there knowing i came to the right vision place. great selection on frame!
- Jan. 29, 2023
Dr.Marquez is worth the wait. He is professional, patient and kind. I never had an eye doctor explai... n eye health to me so well.

Excellent service and staff. Highly recommend it.

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.
