What to Expect at Your Contact Lens Exam
If wearing glasses every day is not your thing, contact lenses may be the solution you are looking for. Switching from eyeglasses to contact lenses can change not only your appearance but with the way you interact with others.
There are many types of contact lenses on the market today, including extended-wear disposables, planned replacement, daily-wear soft lenses, extended-wear lenses, and rigid gas permeable lenses to align with everyone’s needs and preferences. To determine which type of lens will work best for you, you will need to make an appointment with an eye doctor you trust who has plenty of experience with all types of contact lenses.
Eye Exam Comes First
Before your contact fitting, our optometrist will conduct an eye exam to ensure that your eyesight has not changed over time and that the right prescription is provided for you. Our eye doctor will also check your eyes for any health issues such as glaucoma and cataracts which can each lead to more serious issues including blindness. Our eye doctor will also be able to determine if there are any issues with your eyes that could prohibit you from wearing contact lenses or if a certain type will work best for you.
Your Contact Lens Fitting
At your contact lens fitting, our eye doctor will determine which type of contact lenses will work best for you depending on your lifestyle and preferences. For example, if you wear bifocal glasses, there are contacts created specifically for this purpose. You will be able to choose which type you want with the assistance and guidance of one of our trusted optometrists. If you are looking for a unique way to express yourself, consider cosmetic contact lenses. Cosmetic options available include colored contact lenses that can change the color of your eyes and the shape of your iris.
