Contact lenses have become quite popular over the last decade. Thanks to the latest technology advancements, just about everyone who wears glasses can replace them for contact lenses. Contact lenses are not only safe, they are also very comfortable and safe for use on children (when properly put in and removed by an adult or with adult supervision).
If you’re interested in wearing contact lenses, or already wear contact lenses, please make sure you let us know when you call to schedule your appointment with us. While undergoing your eye exam you’ll need to go through some additional tests, including a contact lens fitting, to ensure you are prescribed the right contact lens for you.
First, you’ll undergo a routine eye exam where the optometrist will use a drop, magnification lens, and a special light to assess your eye’s health and structure. You’ll also be given a standard visual acuity test to determine whether or not you’ll need vision correction. This will help your optometrist determine which corrective lens prescription will work best for you.
Once your eye exam is completed your optometrist will ask some questions about your lifestyle and contact lens preference. During this time, you’ll be able to specify if you would like color-changing contacts or whether you prefer disposable to extended wear contacts. Your optometrist will prescribe you the correct type of contact lens from the following:
Sports Contacts – There are contact lens that are specifically formulated for people who enjoy sports. It provides improved peripherals and may even block up to 90% of UV rays.
Daily Disposable Lenses – These type of contacts are meant to be worn for one day and then disposed of.
Monthly Disposable Lenses – These contacts can be work every day for up to a month. Wearers must remove them every night and clean them with the recommended contact solution.
Extended Wear Lenses – These contact lenses are made out of a special material containing fluoro-silicone hydrogel that allows your eyes to get oxygen while you wear them. They can be worn for up to 30 nights without having to be removed and cleaned daily.
