Contact lenses are a great alternative to glasses. They are an effective way to correct various visual needs and provide a convenient substitute to eyeglasses. There are contact lenses on the market for people that are nearsighted (myopia), farsighted (hyperopia), astigmatic, and for patients who need bifocals for reading. There are also specialty contact lenses for cosmetic use (colored lenses) and medical conditions such as keratoconus or post-surgical conditions.

 

A comprehensive examination of the eye is required for a contact lens fitting. This exam evaluates the internal and external health of the eye. In addition to the comprehensive exam, the contact lens fitting consists of special tests which are performed to determine the contact lens best suited for the patient. As part of the contact lens consultation, your doctor will discuss your lifestyle to assist in the selection of which contact lens will address your visual needs. The patients’ preferences will also be considered to determine what modality of contact lens would be best suited for the patient.

If a patient is new to contact lenses they will have the initial contact lens fitting, training and progress visits. At the initial fitting, the doctor will determine what type of correction the patient needs and what type of modality is best suited. A diagnostic or trial lens is selected and evaluated. Once the lens is dispensed, the patient will be trained on how to insert and remove the lens. In addition, they will get thorough instructions on how to care for the contact lenses. Progress visits are important in determining the final prescription. At these visits, the doctor will ensure that the contact lenses are performing optimally for every day use. Once the contact lenses are re-evaluated and the prescription is confirmed the contact lens prescription is dispensed. A routine contact lens evaluation is required on a yearly basis.
