We often are one of the first to receive the latest in Contact Lenses. We have contacts available to target specific eye problems like dry eyes, astigmatism, difficulty reading, and eye diseases like keratoconus. We are focused on giving you the best comfort and vision, not just adequate comfort and vision. Contacts are constantly being improved for more comfort and better vision.
Contact lens exams, like all regular eye exams, allow your optometrist to take a thorough look at the health of your eyes and the quality of your vision. Doing this regularly, about once a year, also lets your optometrist keep a close eye on any changes to your vision before they become serious. Contact lenses are medical devices, so you need a contact lens prescription in order to buy them, and your optometrist is required to make sure that your vision examination for your contact lens prescription involves finding the right fit for your lenses.
If you’re a contact lens wearer, it’s important to make sure that your lenses fit both your eyes and your vision properly. In addition to a comprehensive eye exam, a contact lens exam will also involve a contact lens fitting. Your optometrist will need to gather several measurements. The most common is the curvature of your cornea, your eye’s clear front surface. In some cases, your pupil and iris size will also be measured. If you tend to have dry eyes, your optometrist may also perform a tear film evaluation to make sure you’re prescribed contact lenses that keep your eyes sufficiently moist.
Remember, your eye doctor is your ally in making sure your eyes
get what they need to stay healthy and perform at their best.
A thorough comprehensive eye exam will
determine the best lens, vision
and fit for you!
