Your Contact Lens Exam

Our process for fitting contact lenses begins with your contact lens exam. It’s essential to establish your prescription for corrective lenses before fitting you with contact lenses, just as we would if you were getting glasses.

Our contact lens exam determines your prescription and checks for underlying eye health issues. We carefully evaluate your eyes to find the right lenses for your needs.

Your Contact Lens Fitting

During the fitting process, we take various measurements of your eyes to determine the correct size, shape, and prescription of your lenses. We also consider other factors, such as your lifestyle, eye health, and personal preferences, to suggest a lens type that may best fit your needs.

Our goal is to help you enjoy a comfortable and successful experience with your new contact lenses.

How Contact Lenses Help

Contact lenses can correct refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), presbyopia, and astigmatism. 

We can also help manage eye conditions like dry eye and keratoconus with the goal of helping you wear contact lenses comfortably. 

We understand that every individual’s visual needs are unique, and we’ll work closely with you to find contact lenses that support your vision, eye health, and daily lifestyle.

Trial Lenses & Follow-Up Appointments

During your contact lens fitting, we conduct a thorough evaluation that includes testing trial lenses and scheduling follow-up care. As part of this process, you’ll wear the lenses while we evaluate the position and movement of the lens on your eye. This test is meant to help you get a feel for the lenses while our team monitors your comfort.

We recommend follow-up visits after your initial fitting to confirm that your lenses continue to feel comfortable, fit you properly, and that your eyes can tolerate contact lens wear.

Our Specialty Contact Lens Options

Contact lenses can be categorized under 2 main categories, soft contact lenses and rigid gas-permeable (RGP). Under these main categories are different types of contacts, such as scleral lenses. 

Soft lenses are made of flexible plastics that allow oxygen to pass through to the cornea, which can provide comfort throughout the day. RGP lenses, on the other hand, are made of a harder, less flexible plastic, which can provide sharp vision and added durability.

We also offer specialty contact lens options to help correct various vision problems and eye issues.

Scleral Lenses

Scleral contact lenses are larger than traditional contacts and rest on the sclera, or white, of your eyes. These lenses allow for extra space over your cornea’s surface for extra breathability and contain a fluid reservoir between your lens and cornea, which can help relieve dry eyes.

Scleral lenses can be an excellent option if traditional contact lenses aren’t compatible with your eyes due to issues like dry eye and keratoconus.

We offer fittings and lens options for hard-to-fit corneas to help you find a comfortable, compatible lens type for your eyes.

Orthokeratology, or ortho-k, is a non-surgical procedure that uses specially designed contact lenses to gently reshape the curvature of the cornea. This temporary reshaping provides an alternative way of correcting vision without the need for glasses or traditional contact lenses during the day.

Ortho-k lenses can provide numerous benefits, including improved vision without the need for glasses or daytime contact lenses, reduced risk of eye infections, and slowed myopia progression.

MiSight 1 day lenses are soft contact lenses that can help manage myopia in children. MiSight lenses work by correcting nearsightedness while also slowing the progression of myopia. MiSight lenses incorporate correction zones that correct myopia in all gaze positions. 2 correction zones work in conjunction with the lenses’ treatment zones to slow axial elongation.

In addition to controlling myopia progression, MiSight lenses provide numerous benefits, including improved vision without the need for glasses or traditional contact lenses during the day, convenience, and comfort.
