Sometimes, glasses just aren’t the right fit. Whatever your reason for wanting to wear contact lenses, we’ll help you find the right contacts for your eyes.
Contact lenses come in a variety of styles, shapes, and sizes. To find the right contacts for you, we follow a 3-step process.
A contact lens exam is somewhat similar to an eye exam. We ask you questions about your medical history, which helps us narrow down which contacts are right for you. In particular, we look for conditions like dry eye and astigmatism. We also determine your contact lens prescription, which is different from your standard glasses prescription.
A contact lens fitting helps us determine the right lens style and size for your eyes. We’ll measure your corneal topography, or curvature of your eyes. This allows us to identify any irregularities and select the ideal contact lens.
After the exam and fitting, we’ll have a good idea of which contacts are right for you. We’ll supply you with a trial pair to test. If they’re comfortable, great! We’ll give you a full supply. If not, we’ll work with you to find the right ones.
We’ll go over contact lens care in full detail at your appointment. But whether it’s your first time or you’re a contact lens verteran, it’s always good to stay on top of contact lens care.
When caring for contacts, make sure you:
