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 Vision 1st Nashville in Lions Head Condos today.

I am very happy with Vision 1st. For some reason, my insurance network mainly covers big vision chai... ns with poor reviews. Then, I found this place. Dr. Hoover is extremely knowledgeable and a self-proclaimed eye nerd. All the staff were friendly and personable. They did not keep me waiting. I have never had vision problems, but I am looking forward to getting my first pair of glasses. The assistant helped me choose between about 10 options covered by my insurance. I know they will stand behind them and adjust them to my liking. My only complaint is that it's hard to get into the shopping plaza due to traffic.

I needed an emergency repair for eyeglasses another eyeglass store wouldn't and couldn't fix. These ... guys fixed them on the spot and didn't charge me even though I confessed I didn't buy the glasses there! These folks restored some of my faith in humanity. You should give them a chance!

Dr. Ferro is so friendly and kind, I felt very comfortable here and that my eye exam was very thorou... gh. I expressed my anxiety with some of the eye tests they perform and the nurse went slowly with me and made it quick and painless. After my visit Dr. Ferro even sent me a handwritten thank you card! I would recommend this place to anyone looking for an ophthalmologist in Nashville, actually looking forward to my next eye exam for the first time!

Highly recommend Vision 1st! This was my first eye exam since moving to TN and turns out I’ve had ... undiagnosed astigmatisms and I’ve been to the eye doctor every year since I was 8!! The new lenses to correct this have been life changing! I can now see at night driving and don’t feel myself squinting anymore which I began to think was normal!! Dr. Stinnett and the whole team were so thorough and accommodating throughout my whole visit! I can’t wait for my new glasses to come in!

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.
