The Contact Lens Process
Contacts are a fantastic solution for wearers looking for an alternative for glasses but still want the same clear, comfortable vision their traditional lenses provide. If you live an active lifestyle, play sports, or constantly have to switch between different eyeglasses to find comfortable vision, you may want to look into contact lenses.
The Eye Exam
An eye exam is the first step towards determining if contact lenses are right for you. Even if you’re interested in contacts, eye exams are needed to determine if your eyes are healthy enough to wear them.
Contact lenses might not be right for you if:
- You live or work in a dry, dusty, or dirty environment
- You experience regular or severe allergic reactions
- You have a history of eye infections, conditions, and diseases
- Have an unbalanced or compromised tear film
Our technologies, including corneal topography, allows us to take a comprehensive look at the health of your cornea to ensure your eyes can handle extended contact lens use safely and comfortably.
During the fitting process, we will take detailed measurements of your eye’s corneal parameters, including its size and shape, before fitting them with contact lenses right for your needs.
Trial periods may vary between patients, but this time allows you to try out your new contacts to ensure they’re providing the clear, comfortable vision you’re looking for.
Once we’ve helped you find contact lenses that suit your needs, you can order new lenses conveniently online whenever you need them!
