Finding the Right Contacts for Your Eyes

Not every style of contact lens works well for every person. That’s why we do a contact lens exam, fitting, and trial period. We find the ideal fit to help your eye’s see as clearly and comfortably as possible.

If you’re interested in contact lenses, the first thing we do is start with a comprehensive exam. We evaluate your eyes and discuss your lifestyle to get an idea of what contacts will or won’t work well for you. The exam includes determining or contact lens prescription, as well as checking your eyes for health concerns like dry eye.

Your eye’s health could prevent certain brands of contacts of providing you comfortable vision, so we take an in-depth look to find the brand perfect for your eyes.

Once we’ve completed your contact lens exam, we will move onto the fitting. The fitting involves taking detailed measurements of your eyes, including corneal curvature and pupil/iris size.

With this information, we will know what contacts will fit your eyes and provide you with comfortable and clear vision.

Now that we have a thorough understanding of what contact lenses will work for you, we will move onto the contact lens trial, . We will provide you with a trial set of lenses and help you insert them if it is your first time wearing contacts.

Once you are familiar with how to wear and care for your contact lenses, we’ll have you wear the lenses for a trial period. We will schedule a follow-up appointment, so we can discuss if you are experiencing discomfort or vision problems. We can adjust your lens type or prescription if needed.

Specialty Lenses at the Eye & Vision Care Center

We carry a variety of specialty lenses to fit almost every eye. Even if you have astigmatism or dry eye, we can recommend contact lenses to suit your needs. Our specialty lenses include:

  • Ortho-K Contact Lenses
  • Scleral Contact Lenses
  • Toric Contact Lenses
  • Multifocal Contact Lenses
  • Gas Permeable Contact Lenses
  • Transition Contact Lenses

If you’ve been told that you can’t wear contacts in the past, scleral contact lenses may be a good choice for you. Unlike traditional contact lenses that rest on the cornea, scleral contact lenses rest on the sclera (the white of your eye). The unique fit can work well for patients with keratoconus, which causes irregular corneas. Scleral contacts can also work for patients with severely dry eyes.

Toric contact lenses can work for patients with moderate astigmatism, as they are designed to help prevent the contact from moving. There are a few different types; some contain different lens weights or thickness around the edges. Some feature lens truncation, where the bottom portion of the lens is cut off. Both help to prevent the lens from shifting when you blink, providing more comfort and clearer vision.

Like multifocal glasses lenses, multifocal contact lenses contain multiple prescriptions. The multiple prescriptions allow the lenses to correct both your near and distance vision, helping with conditions like presbyopia. One portion of the lens contains your near vision prescription, while another contains your distance vision prescription. Typically, the near vision correction is located in the bottom or around the edge of the lens to help you with tasks like reading.

Also known as rigid gas permeable contact lenses, these lenses are made from a hard material that still allows oxygen to easily pass through, allowing your eyes to breathe and increasing your comfort. Compared to soft contact lenses, gas permeables contact lenses are longer lasting, easier to clean, and may be better for certain patients, including those with astigmatism.

Transition contact lenses work similarly to transition glasses lenses. They adapt to changing light conditions, allowing you to see well both indoors and outdoors. The lenses become slightly darker in bright light or direct sunlight, helping to reduce exposure to harmful UV rays.
