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 Primary EyeCare Centers - Edgebrook in Rockford today.

During a routine exam I was greeted by friendly faces and rapid service. The tech ,Italiana, was fri... endly and very thorough ! She explained the testing and gave me her undivided attention with her care. Dr. Prayika Patel was prompt to ask for an additional test after noticing a troubling area in my right eye. She was comforting and clearly showed me what concerned her that day. She was professional but very caring. She discovered that I needed eye surgery and Italia followed up immediately by getting a date set for surgery before I left my appointment. I am so impressed with the level of care I experienced and I appreciate each of those who provided me with sight-saving care ! Thank you, Primary Eye Care !

Dr Kittle has been our family eye doctor for years. He is amazing. He is very kind and really cares ... about his patients. He is the most knowledgeable vision Doctor I have ever know. He always makes us feel comfortable during the exams and he has a fun sense of humor. He makes my sons comfortable by talking about Star Wars to help them relax during the exam. He is very patient. My son when younger had a vision condition that is uncommon and really was impacting his life. Other types of doctors were miss diagnosing him with other conditions but but Dr. Kittle found right away that his situation was due to his eyes. All my son needed was vision therapy and his condition he had is completely gone after the therapy. I have a neurological condition and I have had 2 brain surgeries and he understands how my condition effects my eyes. Plus I am very difficult to fit for contacts because of complex condition with my eyes but he had always been able to find contacts that work for me. Just this week I was having an issue with my eyes and he came in a half an hour earlier just to see me because he was double booked with patients that day. After the exam he did find my eyes did need treatment and I really appreciate him coming in to work early just to treat me before his day started. He is truly a great doctor. I highly recommend him. Technicians to do adjustments are awesome. I like them all and they are all very kind and professional. Victor is very kind and always greets me when I come in. I will always recommend anyone to go here. I would not go anywhere else.

Dr Anderson is always very kind, attentive and professional. Very detailed examination. When choosin... g frames/glasses lots of variety with brand name, style and sizes for all. Luke was an excellent optician to assist with selecting and ordering my new frames. He was even able to get my pair from last year that were broken covered under warranty. Great place for excellent care and customer service! Highly recommend!

The team at the Edgebrook Primary Eye Care center was no less than stupendous. I was taken care of b... y Dr. Hillmann and the young professional Chase. Dr. Hillmann is very clear and skips no detail when it comes to giving you the full information about your eyes. Any questions that you have about your eyes, Dr. Hillmann will answer with utmost confidence and intelligence. The center has a retina photo option - I highly recommend. I have not had access to such technology at my previous optometrists. This just shows how dedicated the team at Edgebrook is when it comes to getting the most out of your visit. The entire staff was friendly, professional, and confident when it came to running the tests on me. I recommend this place of business to anyone. To those who have poor vision (I have -8.5), those who are just getting glasses, and those who just don’t know where to go. You will walk out of there knowing that you were properly taken care of.

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.
