Contact lens exam with our Bellflower Optometrists

Published on
November 25, 2022

An estimated 45 million people in the United States wear contact lenses. It is recommended that those who wear contact lenses schedule an eye exam at least once a year. At our state of the art optometry clinic in Bellflower we can help you get great vision and comfort with the latest contact lenses. 

What is a contact lens exam?

Contact lenses are a popular alternative to prescription glasses for many people. They are a medical device and are placed directly onto your eyes With the advancement of modern optometry, you can now choose from a wide range of safe and comfortable options to meet your needs. These include soft and hard lenses, disposable lenses, extended wear lenses, and even custom styles. There are even contact lenses that you wear while sleeping that allow you to go without glasses or contact lenses during the day!! Many people want to use them occasionally, while others want to switch completely from standard glasses.

What is included in a contact lens exam? 

Contact lens exams at our state of the art Bellflower, CA optometry clinic include the following components:

  • One of the reasons you may need a contact lens exam is because your contact lens prescription needs to be updated.
  • It's also important to have a contact lens exam to make sure the lens fits, make sure the eye gets enough oxygen, and ensure that the surface of the lens functions properly.
  • We ensure that if you wear daily contact lenses, you actually throw them away at the end of the day, and if it's a monthly lens, it provides comfort and clarity for the entire month.
  • We will assess whether your eye produces enough tears to keep your lenses moist. We all have different tear films because we are all different. And contact lens solutions don't always work for everyone. This is also something we discuss with you.
  • You will receive instructions on how to use and care for your lenses, so that your health and the longevity of the lenses are ensured. You will learn how to safely insert and remove the contacts, as well as how to clean and store them (if they aren't disposable).
  • Additionally, we ensure that the vision is still good with contact lenses. Our goal is to ensure that you are comfortable and happy with your contact lenses.

I haven't actually used the optometrist side, so my review is limited to the vision therapy offered.  This office was recommended by my occupational therapist for the treatment of my double vision following a stroke.

Love this location. I had a brain injury accident from day one one. All the team make you feel you still important and hope in the horizon after when the medical system fell you miserably. Dr. Ikeda very professional and very understanding about your issue. Two tombs up.

My husband and I were immediately impressed with Dr Ikeda. I was hit by a car while cycling which caused broken bones and three brain injuries. The brain injuries caused double vision. Dr. Ikeda examined my eyes and got me started on vision therapy with his occupational therapist who specializes in vision therapy.  She (Chris) is absolutely great.  I am impressed with the array of tools used to help recover my binocular vision.  I am doing things I never thought were possible (balance boards etc).  Chris pushes me and keeps me motivated. I really enjoy my sessions with her.  The office staff is always friendly and they have a wonderful appointment reminder tool that makes it easy to keep my calendar up to date. I am happy the rehab center at Little Co. of Mary recommended them!!

The Vision Therapy is handled in a separate office through a different door from the shared waiting room. Chris, the vision therapist, has a wide and varied assortment of tools, equipment and resources to best evaluate and treat most vision issues. After just a few visits, my double vision became easier to control, using exercises developed during the therapy process. It was time well-spent.

I have been coming here since I can remember. I love it here. The staff is so amazing and nice. They explain everything they gonna do and never make you feel rushed. Dr. Ikeda has always been my doctor and I would never want another one. He is the doctor for my whole family and is always asking how everyone is doing. I am also so crazy about picking out my frames and have to try so many and each person who helps me take the time and lets me try them all on. I would never want to go anywhere else! I definitely would recommend this office to anyone looking for a great eye doctor.

This is not for the eye exam but for the frames selection portion. I brought my prescription from Kaiser here with my VSP insurance. The reception staff was very polite and professional.  Manny helped me to pick out frames and explain my coverage.  Very helpful and patient not like the individual at the other place I rated here on Yelp.  I was running late and he still helped me and was not bothered at all.  I am so glad I came here ..........very pleased.

Very professional staff and pleasant.
