The field of optometry is evolving rapidly, and an increasing number of patients now have the option to enjoy the flexibility of using contact lenses for vision correction. Contact lens examinations encompass tests that may not be part of regular eye exams. Therefore, if you are considering contact lenses, please inform us when scheduling your exam. This ensures that we allocate the additional time needed for contact lens fitting or prescription updates.
Our contact lens exams involve inquiries about your lifestyle and discussions about the various options available to you. The market offers a range of contact lenses with different replacement frequencies, including daily, weekly, and monthly options. Rigid gas permeable (RGP or GP) contact lenses are an alternative that often provides sharper vision compared to traditional soft lenses. For those dealing with age-related vision issues (presbyopia), bifocal contact lenses are available. Another option is monovision, a special technique where one eye corrects for distance vision while the other corrects for near vision. Some contact lenses even allow you to change your eye color.
Feel free to contact us today to schedule a comprehensive contact lens exam tailored to your individual needs.
