Even though many people can comfortably wear contact lenses, certain eye conditions like dry eyes or keratoconus can affect the type of contact lens you need.
Here is how we help determine if you’re a candidate for contact lenses:
The Eye Exam
Eye exams are the first step towards finding the right contact lenses for you. During an eye exam, we assess your visual acuity, screen for eye diseases, and perform various other tests to determine if contact lenses are right for you.
In some cases, we may need to refer you to our other clinic for corneal topography tests. Corneal topography analyzes the surface of your cornea for issues like keratoconus, which could affect the type of lenses you may need.
The Contact Lens Fitting
The fitting process helps us determine the type of contact lens you need to enjoy comfortable, clear vision. We take detailed measurements of your eye’s shape and size, including your corneas, to ensure your contact lenses meet your expectations.
We will also provide you with in-depth training on using and maintaining your contact lenses and then providing you with a trial pair for you to use for a short period.
The Trial Period
The trial period helps us determine if we need to make any adjustments to your contact lenses. We will also book a follow-up appointment to ensure your new contacts are performing as expected. Please contact us immediately if your trial lenses are causing discomfort or irritation.
Once we’ve found the right lenses for you, we will order you a supply for you to wear whenever you wish!
