As much as we’d all like to have the perfect pair of contact lenses show up on our doorstep, it’s not that simple. Your eyes are as beautifully unique as your fingerprints, so it takes a few steps to identify which contact lenses are “the ones” for you.
Even if you just had an eye exam or you know your glasses prescription, we’ll need to start with a contact lens exam. We’ll determine your contact lens prescription (which is different from your eyeglass prescription) and we’ll make sure you don’t have any eye health issues that would keep you from wearing contacts.
Assuming everything looks good, we’ll move on to the fitting.
An ill-fitting contact lens just doesn’t feel good. We’ll take ultra-precise measurements of your corneas, which help us find the most comfortable contacts for you. Don’t worry, we use a special non-invasive tool called a corneal topographer to measure your eyes without touching them.
We’ll use all the information we’ve gathered to choose the contacts that we think are right for you. You’ll take a trial pair of these lenses home with you to test out. If they feel good and work properly, awesome, we’ll write your prescription and order a supply of lenses for you! If not, no worries; we’ll try another type until we find the perfect fit.
Contact lens technology has come a long way. There are all sorts of contact lenses designed to work for “hard-to-fit” eyes, or even go beyond just standard daily wear. We’re happy to fit all sorts of specialty lenses, including scleral lenses for patients with keratoconus and Ortho-K lenses for patients with myopia.
