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 Mendota in Mendota Heights today.

Shawnette was amazing! Had all of my information ready to go, got me in right away after showing up ... early, and was patient while I picked out my glasses. During our conversation, she told me she was newer to the company. It seems like she's been there for years and this company is so lucky to have someone like her representing the brand! Hopefully you see this Shawnette- thank you for such a fantastic experience!

I am updating my last review after my most recent exam - they are still a great place and I recommen... d them again. I have gone to Eyes of Mendota for frames and lenses for 5 years. I have gone for exams for the past two years. The staff is professional and answers all questions. I recommend them without reservation.

Very friendly/helpful staff. Would recommend.

I went to Eyes of Mendota 2 years ago under the previous ownership and management and it was terribl... e. Truly. Had no intention of ever going back. Then I got a call from the new staff earlier this year informing me of new ownership and management. Decided to give it another try because the location was convenient to my workplace. LOVED IT. So glad I did! The optician was so personable and great and found something that 10 years of other opticians did not! The staff there was so sweet and helpful and made me feel valued which is a rare trait these days as customer service is a dying art. I am so glad I gave them another try! One of the best eye appointments I have had in years!

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.
