If you have a refractive error like nearsightedness or farsightedness, you’re probably no stranger to traditional frames and lenses to help you see clearly. Although eyeglasses can be great to give you clear vision, they can be bulky and may get in the way of living an active lifestyle.
Whether you’ve been experiencing troubles with eyeglasses or just want to switch up your style, contact lenses may be a great option! By visiting our incredible eye care team, we can help you find something that suits your eyes, lifestyle, and wallet.
Please, contact our office to book an appointment, and we’ll get you seeing clearly in no time!
If you’re interested in contact lenses and how they can improve your quality of life, you’ll first need a comprehensive eye exam to see if they’re right for you.
Although many types of contact lenses exist, contact lenses are suitable for everyone. The only way to determine your candidacy for contact lenses is to have your optometrist assess your ocular health.
Some conditions that may prevent you from comfortably wearing contacts include:
Once we’ve evaluated your eyes and determined contact lenses will work for you, we’ll move on to the fitting. We’ll take detailed measurements of your eyes to see which style and shape of lenses will suit you best during the fitting. If you need specialty lenses, we may need to perform some additional tests.
After we recommend a particular lens, we’ll give you a trial pair to test out. You should wear this pair for 7 days, at which point we’ll book you in for a follow-up appointment to see how they’ve felt. If they worked for you and you’re comfortable with them, you can order more and start wearing them regularly!If your contact lenses feel uncomfortable or painful at any point, remove them immediately and give us a call.
If you do not clean and care for your contact lenses properly, you are at the risk of developing a serious eye infection. Disinfecting your contact lenses regularly and making sure they’re stored correctly is a great way to prevent discomfort.
