Get Clarity With Contact Lenses
There are many reasons you might consider contact lenses. Maybe you’re tired of searching for your glasses. Perhaps you prefer a glasses-free look. You might have a high prescription or some astigmatism and have heard that contact lenses can provide better vision correction.
If you’re considering making the switch, you’ll need a comprehensive eye exam and be properly fitted for contact lenses. Remember that contact lenses are a medical device. You need an eye care professional to help you determine if you can wear contacts and, if so, what type of lens works for you.
Can I Wear Contacts?
Contact lenses are widely tolerated, but they aren’t for everyone. Certain eye conditions might prevent you from wearing them comfortably. To get an idea if contacts will benefit you, we’ll discuss your lifestyle and eye health history during a comprehensive eye exam.
Some of the eye issues that might prevent you from heading home with contacts include:
What to Expect at a Contact Lens Fitting
Contact lenses have come a long way since they were first introduced. There are plenty of varieties and brands available on the market. We’ll help you decide which type are best for your eyes during a comprehensive eye exam and contact lens fitting.
During an exam, we check your overall eye health, determine your prescription, and take your eye measurements to get the right fit. We’ll also discuss your lifestyle and what you’re expecting from contact lens wear.
If you have a busy lifestyle and don’t want to clean and put away lenses every night, you might opt for daily wear contacts. If you have dry eyes, you might be better suited to rigid gas-permeable lenses.
If you’ve been told that you can’t wear contact lenses, contact our office and book an appointment.
