    Yes. An contact exam is different from that of glasses exam. Apart from the regular eye exam, during an contact exam, the doctor will use a kerameter to measure the surface and curvature of your eyeball. The doctor will also ask some questions about your lifestyle and preferences so that he can determine which type of contact lenses will suit you best.
