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.

I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Rouse and his amazing staff! I scheduled an appointment ... here because I had been having issues with my eyes for a couple of weeks. My Vision in my right eye was especially bad. I originally went to a different doctor who told me I had dry eye. However, I had a feeling there was more to it than just dry eye, so I made an appointment with Dr. Rouse to have him give me an exam and see if he thought the previous doctors diagnosis was accurate. Dr. Rouse took such good care of me from start to finish! He really cared about what I was going through and listened to all of my concerns. After completing a very thorough exam he determined that I had a lot more going on then just dry eye. It was serious and he knew I was scared. He told me to trust him and to know that “he’s got me”. I do trust him. I’ve never had a doctor tell me something like that before and it felt so reassuring to know that I was in such great hands and that I was finally going to get the answers I was looking for. He explained everything to me in detail about what was happening with my eyes and then immediately referred me to Sound Retina so I could be seen right away to start treatment. I was so scared and couldn’t stop crying but him and all of his staff were so kind and showed me a tremendous amount of empathy for what I was now faced with. For that, I will always be grateful and as long as Dr. Rouse is practicing, he will always be my eye doctor. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

As a former Dispensing Optician for Dr. Rouse, I was enabled to learn and grow more at this practice... than any other practice I worked for before or since. His passion for knowledge is infectious. His commitment to health and wellness is unparalleled. If you need a true comprehensive eye health exam, this is the ONLY place you should be going. You will NOT be disappointed.

Dr. Rouse is very good and takes his time with you during the eye exam. He has a great personality t... hat makes you feel comfortable. To be honest, if you are on a fixed income, their prices for glasses are too high and you may find you want to take your prescription some place else but this is a good eye Doctor!

Want to highly recommend Dr Craig Rouse, optometric physician in Lacey. Here's why: We had an eye em... ergency-of course, on a Sunday morning. A poke in the eye, resulting in Intense pain. Urgent care visit, confirming that part of the cornea was scraped out, received antibiotic scrip and told to contact ophthalmologist on Monday. Also received list of "eye care resources." After an hour back home, with pain increasing, started calling eye drs on list who provided "off-hours emergency care." Kept getting office closed message with "hit this # for emergency care," we did, and they all all returned to initial office closed, hit this # for emergency" message. Even the "big" local eye dr office. Until we called Rouse Eye Care Center. He answered himself, met us at his office within 20 minutes, examined eye, provided pain treatment, drops to keep eye lubricated, and a stronger antibiotic, and scheduled a Wed am follow up visit. Wow! Pain stopped immediately, used antibiotic and lubrication eye drops, and eye was healed by Wed am visit. Woohoo!

My daughter and her bf were on town visiting from Virginia and he had an eye emergency. They were se... en within 15 minutes and given his antibiotic eye drop. And we were on our way. Thank you!
- Jan. 05, 2023
Best experience ever. Everyone is so welcoming and nice! I wish I would have got her name but she ev... en remembered me from my phone call when I was making an appointment. If I could give 100 stars I would!

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.
