Contact Lenses & Exams
Whether you are new to contact lenses, or have been wearing them for years, our eye doctors will determine the right solution for you.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, your optometrist will determine what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as near sightedness, far sightedness, or astigmatism) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. Your optometrist will measure the curvature of the front of your eye to ensure contact lenses are fitted properly. Part of the consultation is to ensure safe, long term contact lenses are selected, and you are leaving with comfortable, clear vision.
After determining the level of refractive error, your optometrist works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution. Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form.
Contact lenses need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal & rigid gas permeable contact lenses are also available for patients with special eye conditions.
Yes, if you are a contact lens wearer, you should wear your contact lenses to your appointment. If you are a new patient, it is helpful to have information about your current contact lenses (packaging or labels). If your eyes are red or painful or both, do not wear your contact lenses and book an appointment right away to have your eyes examined.
