What Are Contact Lenses?

Contact lenses are little plastic medical devices that sit on the eyes and float on the tear film. Along with correcting common refractive errors, they also provide several benefits over traditional glasses:

  • Contact lenses move with the eye and offer more natural vision correction.
  • Contact lenses don’t fog up like glasses do.
  • Well-fitting contact lenses stay in place on the eyes and improve peripheral (side) vision during sports and activities.
  • Contact lens wearers can wear non-prescription sunglasses and can get extra UV protection.
  • Some specialty contact lenses slow myopia progression in children.

The Exam

A contact lens exam is very similar to a regular eye exam, but includes a few extra tests. These tests are intended to determine your vision prescription and assess your overall eye health for long-term contact lens wear.

Some eye conditions can make contact lenses uncomfortable. But, specialty contact lenses can actually help alleviate some eye problems.

Contact lenses may not be ideal for those who:

  • Have chronic eye infections
  • Suffer from eye allergies and allergic reactions
  • Have problems with dry eyes
  • Work or live in dusty, dirty, smoky environments
  • Have a specific vision problem

There’s no one-size-fits-all contact lens. So we’ll also perform a thorough contact lens fitting to find you the best size and shape for your unique eyes.

We take measurements of your pupils and irises and use corneal topography to create a detailed map of the surface of your eyes.

The fitting also includes a discussion of your lifestyle, habits, and preferences. With this information and your measurements, we can recommend a style and brand of contact lens we believe will be just right for you.

Contact Lens Use & Care

Although every lens is different, they all require regular, thorough cleaning and proper storage. We’ll teach you how to care for your lenses properly and show you how to insert, remove, and store them. 

Proper care and maintenance of your new lenses will extend their life and help prevent eye infections and other complications.

Finding Your Contact Lenses

It can take a bit of trial and error to find the right contact lens. We’re happy to make any adjustments if the lenses we suggested aren’t working. Our primary goals are to ensure you’re happy with your contacts and that your eyes remain healthy and comfortable. 

Give us a call any time to book a contact lens exam or ask any questions.

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, happens when your eyes have trouble focusing on far-away objects. Typically, light enters your eye, goes through your cornea, iris, and lens, and then lands on your retina, sending signals to your brain through the optic nerve.  With myopia, light lands in front of your retina instead of directly on […]
