Whether you are 100% new to corrective lenses or a convert from glasses, you will leave our office with fresh confidence and fantastic vision.
What Happens During a Contact Lens Exam?
Unlike eyeglasses, which function at a distance from the eyes, contact lenses hug the cornea and must be an exact fit. The more accurate the lens size and shape, the better your vision will be. On an initial visit, our staff takes a variety of highly precise measurements of your eyes. These help us fit you with the best lenses possible for the best results, including improved peripheral vision when compared to glasses.
Can I wear contacts with other eye problems?
One component of the contact lens exam is an assessment of other conditions present in the eye. Special lenses exist to meet the needs of the vision-impaired with dry eyes, irregular corneal contours, astigmatism and other conditions that cause adverse reactions when subjected to certain lens materials. Some conditions may require a departure from standard soft contacts while others require choosing between long-term lenses or disposable, single-use options. Be sure to advise staff of any additional complications, such as medication use that impacts vision or eye health, to ensure the right lenses are provided.
