Contact Lens Evaluation
At Eye & Vision Care, many of the patients we see prefer contacts for their vision correction needs. Wearing contact lenses offers you a different style, hassle-free vision correction, and the freedom to wear non-prescription sunglasses and goggles.
If you are a patient with severe astigmatism or high prescription, we may recommend contact lenses for more enhanced vision correction. Today’s technology can even allow you to replace your bifocal glasses with bifocal contact lenses.
When you visit us to get fitted for contacts, we will begin with a consultation about your medical history and vision needs. We will then conduct a comprehensive eye exam so that we can be sure to prescribe the right kind of contact lenses for your unique eye care needs.
What about a Contact Lens Exam?
A comprehensive eye exam typically does not include a contact lens fitting. So you may need to schedule a separate contact lens exam. Just let us know when you schedule your appointment, and we'll make sure you are taken care of.
Depending on which type you choose, soft lenses must be replaced daily, weekly, or monthly. This type of contact is often recommended for physical activity because it sits close to the eye and is difficult to dislodge. Advanced technology, like silicone hydrogels, has made it easier than ever for patients to feel comfortable wearing soft lenses.
Just like a pair of bifocals, multifocal lenses offer vision correction at both near and far distances. Multifocal lenses come in both soft and rigid gas-permeable materials.
