Discover the World of Contact Lenses

Contact lenses have advanced immensely since their introduction 100 years ago. Not only are they capable of correcting vision issues caused by myopia, presbyopia, and more, but they’re now designed to help address and adapt to the many needs of the wearer! The result is clear, comfortable, and glasses-free vision.

However, contact lenses aren’t for everyone. If you’re interested in what contact lenses can do for you, please book an appointment today!

Getting Your Contact Lenses

The Eye Exam

Before you’re considered a candidate for contact lenses, you’ll need to have an eye exam. A thorough exam will help your optometrist determine what prescription you may need, and if your eyes are healthy for contact lens use.

Following the eye exam, your optometrist will fit you with a pair of contact lenses that match your needs while still comfortable to wear. During the fitting process, your optometrist will take detailed measurements of your eye’s corneal parameters, including its shape and size.

After your optometrist has fitted a pair of contact lenses for you, the next step is to take home a trial pair to determine how well they work for you “in the field.” Your eye care team will also teach you how to properly insert, remove, use, and maintain your contact lenses to ensure they last and remain comfortable.

After a little bit of time, you’ll have a follow-up appointment to discuss how well your contacts performed during the trial period.

Who Can Wear Contacts?

Unfortunately, not everyone can wear contact lenses. Some common factors that could affect your ability to wear contacts include:

Specialty Lenses

Rigid Gas-Permeable Lenses

Rigid gas-permeable (RGP) contact lenses are a common choice for many contact lens wearers. RGP lenses are made with durable plastic that transmits oxygen. These contacts can last longer than traditional contact lenses and help resist bacteria build-up that could occur on soft contact lenses.

Colored contact lenses are a fantastic way to rejuvenate your style or add that little extra “oomph” to your costume! Don’t settle with uncomfortable costume products; let us help you find a pair of colored contacts that look and feel great!
