What is the difference between contact lens exam and eye exam?
Two months ago I went to the eye doctor to get an eye exam. He gave me my presciption and I got my glasses. Well I just broke my new glasses and ive decided glasses were too much of a hassle. Now Im just wondering...What is the difference between contact lens exam and an eye exam. According to my knowledge...a contact lens exam is an eye exam PLUS contact fitting. Is this correct? So if I were to get contacts would I just have to get a contact fitting or would I have to get the whole contact lens exam? Any other suggestions/ or solutions?
