Getting started with contact lenses is easy—book your fitting today!
Finding Your Fit
A contact lens prescription differs from your regular eyewear prescription. After all, contact lenses sit directly on the cornea. They are a medical device that requires careful fitting to support your eye comfort.
When you book a contact lens exam, we will evaluate your overall eye health to determine which lenses are best for your eyes. We’ll take some measurements to make sure we get the sizing right too. During the exam, we’ll discuss your lifestyle, vision needs, and your expectations from contact lens wear.
Maybe you’re someone who only wants to wear contact lenses on special occasions. Or perhaps you’re a busy parent with a jam-packed bedtime routine who doesn’t have the time to clean and put away the same pair of lenses every night.
No matter your situation, we’ll take the time to listen to your needs and find the right lens fit for you. Book your contact lens exam now.
Caring for Contacts
Contact lenses sit directly on the cornea, so you’ll need to follow your optometrist’s instructions carefully to help keep your eyes healthy. Serious infections can be associated with contact lens wear, so hygiene is of the utmost importance.
Kids and teens looking for easier lens care may prefer disposable soft contact lenses. These lenses are worn once, so there are no extra steps to disinfect or store the lenses.
Contact lens wearers of all ages can prevent infections by doing the following:
- Remove your lenses before you go to sleep.
- Book annual, comprehensive eye exams to check that your eyes are still tolerating lenses well.
- Don’t shower, use a hot tub, or go swimming while wearing contact lenses.
- Replace and care for your lenses by following your optometrist’s instructions.
- If you have lenses that need to be cleaned, only use the recommended contact lens solution—never tap water.
- Wash your hands with soap and water and dry them thoroughly before inserting or removing lenses.
Exams Are Essential
If you’re a regular contact lens wearer, it’s important to come for annual eye exams so we can monitor your eye health and comfort while wearing them. But if you experience discomfort while wearing your contacts, don’t wait until your exam time comes up on the calendar.
Many people who experience discomfort give up on wearing lenses without looking for an alternative option. Dry eye is a common reason for people to go back to glasses. But we can help you find another style of lens or a dry eye treatment to keep you wearing contacts comfortably.
Regular exams are also essential for keeping your prescription up-to-date and your vision sharp. If you have a current prescription and just need a refill, you can order your contact lenses online or come in and see us!
