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 Olathe Family Vision in Olathe today.

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.

I can not say ENOUGH about Dr. Wayne. He is just first rate. We have used him for all our eye needs.... From the kids who just get annual visits with 20/20 Vision, to myself needing first time reading glasses in my 40’s, to all things Vision Therapy. We moved here from Colorado where Vision Therapy was quite common and many offices were licensed in it and a number of my friends availed themselves and their children to the unique training and quality Vision therapy brings to the learning table. Dr. Wayne was the first office (and one of the only offices) I found in the greater Kansas City area 7 years ago and we’ve never looked elsewhere. His rapport with Children is wonderful. He’s articulate and well educated. He makes a person feel quite at ease. Anxiety to new situations can be a thing in my home. I am super grateful for his expert care and his gentle attention to detail. Highly recommend him and his office!

We saw Dr. Hemphill and the Vision Therapist. The testing was extensive and utilized many modalities... to accurately access what was going on. Not only were they very kind to me and my son, they were exceedingly thorough and knowledgeable. They did a great job of working with my son who is struggling with focusing and tracking, as a result, reading is very challenging. Not only did they offer a lot of hope but they navigated the fact that he was nervous and a bit embarrassed by his inability to read well, very nicely. They helped him realize what his eyes and brain were doing were not in his control but there were exercises and techniques that could help him. He left very buoyed for the first time in years. I anticipate getting a detailed write up in the mail with suggestions on how to proceed. Can not recommend them enough!

Dr. Hemphill is a very friendly and knowledgeable optometrist. He really SEES the big picture. But s... eriously, great staff. Competent doctors. I don't always go to an eye doctor, but when I do, I go to Olathe Family Vision.
