They can be made to fit your lifestyle.

Eyes Are Your Assets

Your eyes are one of your most important physical assets. You use them to read, recognize what to eat or drink, and help you go to places. From the moment you wake up to the time you go to sleep, your eyes are in constant use. When you can't see properly, you bump into things, misplace items you need, or unable to go about your daily tasks. The beauty about contact lenses is that they can help improve your vision to prevent these common issues. Our optometrist can help make sure that the contacts fit properly, are comfortable, and that you understand contact lens safety and hygiene.

Contact Lens Consultation

Even if you don’t have vision problems, it is vital to have your eyes checked regularly to make sure that they are healthy. There are lifestyle and health conditions like astigmatism and dry eye syndrome that can impact the type of contacts that will work for you. Our eye doctor will examine your eyes to determine if you are suffering from a condition that prevents you from wearing contacts. After the exam, our optometrist will discuss a few contact lens options with you. Based on your needs and lifestyle, our doctor may suggest the following contacts:

  • Daily disposables lenses
  • Monthly disposable lenses  
  • Multifocal or bifocal contact lenses
  • Monovision

Measuring Your Eyes

Contacts seem like they’d fit any eye, but they don’t. Our optometrist will need to take certain measurements of your eye to make sure that your contacts fit comfortably and are not blurring or impairing your vision. An instrument called a keratometer measures the curvature of the cornea and analyzes light reflections from the cornea. The size of your pupil is measured with a pupil gauge. A tear film evaluation evaluates your ability to produce tears by inserting a small strip of paper underneath your lower eyelid.
