The Importance of Contact Lens Exams and Fittings
Even if you've recently had a traditional eye and vision exam, contact lens fittings are a required step for anybody who wants to wear contact lenses. What many people don't realize is that different types of vision problems can make wearing "traditional" contact lenses difficult, uncomfortable, or downright impossible. For example, those with astigmatism (a very common vision problem) have a football shared curvature on the cornea that can prevent them from wearing regular contact lenses.
By having a contact lens exam done in our office, we can determine the specifics of any refractive errors, as well as the exact type of contact lenses that may be best suited for you. Our goal is to help you make the smoothest and most comfortable transition to contact lenses as possible. With a comprehensive contact lens exam, we can save you the time and hassle of trying to find the right contact lenses for you through trial and error.
Contact Lenses for Every Patient's Needs
In addition to offering contact lens exams to our patients looking to make the transition, we also offer any and all specialized contact lenses that you may need. From gas permeable lenses to extended wear and daily disposables, we have lenses to suit any patient's needs. We also strive to offer competitive pricing so you can rest assured you're not paying more than you need to for your contact lens supply. We truly have contact lens options for just about any eye condition or specific need right here in our office.
When you make the switch to contact lenses, our optometry team will also take the time to ensure you're comfortable with the process of inserting, removing, and caring for your new contacts. We understand that it can be difficult to get used to, but our experienced and helpful team has lots of advice and tips to share with you that will make the transition easier and prevent you from making some of the most common mistakes with your new lenses.
