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 Envision EyeCare - West in Northwest El Paso today.

I’d like to thank Practice Manager Monica & Assistant Manager Mark. For helping me select the perf... ect set of Tom Ford sunglasses! As soon as I walked in, I was greeted by Mark. He was professional , friendly and was eager to answer any questions I had. Practice Manager Monica assisted me in selecting my frames. I must have tried on the entire stock! But she was patient, professional, and explained the lenses and coatings in detail. Thank you both for the five star experience!

Went in today for the first time, since my last eye doctor retired. Boy! What a great experience!!... ! The staff was courteous, knowledgeable, and extremely kind! I didn't even have to wait that long to be seen. I would say at best within 5 minutes of completing my new patient papers. The doctor was extremely sweet, knowledgeable, and kind as well!! Highly recommend this place! If I could give a higher rating than 5 stars, I would! Valerie Maros

I had my appointment late in the afternoon (4:20). I arrived early and since it was almost empty i ... went in almost right after i finished all my paperwork. The ladies that did the first part of the appointment were professional and courteous. And Dr. FAULKNER, was very nice, I've never had an eye exam where i felt the Dr. Was really paying attention and listening to my concerns. He was thorough and he explained everything. I had good experiences since i called to make the appointment.

I have recommended this place to many of my friends and family. Dr. Goff has been wonderful with my ... family. My mother was just seen and she explained everything to the fullest about what we needed to do. She was very detailed ! She had the office staff call the retina specialist and schedule for us and check to see if they accepted our insurance. Thank you for always making it a pleasant experience.

In eleven years of patronage of Envision Eyecare I have never had a negative experience, diagnosis o... r correction. Service has always been of the highest quality. My only negative experience was with Tricare for Life who changed their payment policy that increased my out of pocket expenses.

Everyone is so friendly! Dr. Faulkner is thorough and does an excellent job with examinations. The r... est of his staff is great too. They really treat you like a patient here, rather than just a number. Mariah is so patient and friendly. She enthusiastically helped us for over 45 minutes while we indecisively picked out our new glasses.

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.
