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 Eyecare of Palatine in Palatine today.

My daughter's first ever eye exam went extremely well because of the patient and friendly staff at t... his location. They took their time and helped her through the eye tests and she really loved the experience. Thank you for being so kind and caring cannot wait to return next year.

Dr. Kubicki is very personable and knowledgeable. We've been coming here for a couple years now and... the staff has always been good with kids and adults alike. Bring a book for the small book library (take a book, leave a book) out front in case you see a good one.

This is the doctor to go to if you need someone experienced. Gerowitz helped me with my dry eyes aft... er visiting him I no longer feel uncomfortability and irritation in my eye. He was very supportive and professional. Gerowitz saw the issue in my eye that other eye doctors could not spot. Incredibly greatfull for his service!

We got recommended to Dr. Robert Gerowitz due to some special format on my son's cornea. My son is a... n active athetic boy (snowboarding, ice hockey, biking, etc). My son has been using CRT lenses since he is 8 years old, but with the change in the cornea the CRT was not working. Dr. Gerowitz took his case with all attention and care. He was calm in dealing with a challenge situation. it took around 2-3 months of exams until Dr Gerowitz ordered the molds for my son. In a matter of weeks using the new molds my son got 20/20 vision. I am so pleased with Dr. Gerowitz. I strongly recommend him and his staff. Everyone is great! They understand urgency when there is one and work the best way to accommodate our needs. Thank Dr. Gerowitz for everything.

My daughter is currently wearing ortho-k. Her eyes of progressively has gone better. During this fir... st week, she already has 20/20 vision which is very surprising. Before the procedure, she thought putting these lenses in your eyes would hurt and be really uncomfortable, but with the right technique it is super easy! Thank you Dr. Robert Gerowitz and the teams for what you do!

Dr. Kubicki and his team are phenomenal, very professional, and friendly.

Highly recommend this small business to support for your eye care needs!

Thank you Dr. Rob for taking great care of my eyes now for over 20 years! You are the very best.

Dr. Kubicki and his staff are professional and accommodating from start to finish. He’s a perfec... tionist who’s not happy unless you are. I’ve never had such sharp corrected vision. Very pleased and would highly recommend ! Jeff Velick

We are very happy and pleased to have known the doctor who is not only specialized in ortho-k but al... so pose a kind gesture with intrinsic knowledge. The staff and the place is very clean and I would recommend strongly him for any Ortho-K treatment for eyes. Initially we stepped back thinking of the fact that our kid had to wear lenses at night. Though it sounds terrifying, we could see drastic changes in the eye sight. Thanks ton to the doctor who is very professional.

Best doctor ever!! My daughter is finally able to play volleyball!

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.
