Are you using the best contact lens for your needs at this time?
Do you know about what is coming up in contact lens technology?
Interested in using contact lenses for the first time?
Are you having difficulty using your old contacts as you mature into adulthood?
These are the questions our office can answer for you.
If you are interested in wearing contact lenses or you are due to have your current pair of contacts checked, our office will perform a specialized evaluation to measure and assess your eyes.
Different from a routine eye exam, an evaluation for contact lenses not only ensures your contact lenses will fit properly but also makes certain they provide the required vision improvements and that your eyes will be able to tolerate wearing lenses without any harmful consequences. It is important to keep in mind that a contact lens exam does not replace having a comprehensive or routine eye exam to assess the health of your eyes.
The reason different measurements are required for contact lenses is that unlike an eyeglass lens, which is positioned approximately 12mm away from your eye; a contact lens sits directly on the surface of your eye. Once your eyes have been measured and evaluated, we will discuss the types of contact lenses and wear schedules that are available to you. Depending upon your vision requirements and your lifestyle, we'll guide you in choosing the most suitable and effective contact lenses to give you comfort, clarity and health.
Our goal is to keep you in contact lenses that provide good comfort, great clarity and excellent eye health! We look forward to keeping you in contacts for the long run, not just the next year, but the next 20 to 40 years.
