Our optometrist will take the time to find the right fit of contacts so that you can see optimal vision.
Who Needs Hard-to-Fit Contact Lenses?
People with the following conditions are good candidates for hard-to-fit contacts:
- Astigmatism: Astigmatism is a common refractive error condition that causes blurry vision. It results from irregularities of the cornea.
- Dry Eyes: Most of us spend hours a day looking at the screen of our electronic devises. This can cause our eyes to blink less, resulting to fewer tears or poorer quality tears.
- Presbyopia: Most people experience this condition after the age of 40. Presbyopia diminishes your focusing ability, such as reading fine print.
- Keratoconus: A condition where the cornea is so thin that it bulges out, leading to distorted vision.
Contact Lens Exam
Our optometrist can conduct a contact lens exam to check the health of your eyes as well as diagnosing any other conditions you may have. The exam is similar to a regular eye and vision exam, but includes additional vision tests and a contact lens fitting. After your assessment, our eye doctor can fit you with the right hard-to-fit contact lenses for your eye condition. Measurements of the eye surface are taken so that the lenses fit well in your eyes. A sample pair are given to you to ensure your eyes can adjust to the lenses.
