Let’s Find the Perfect Lens For You

Things have come a long way since modern contact lenses came about in the 1970s. Today, contacts can be used to correct many refractive errors that were previously fixed with eyeglasses. Advancements in the industry make it possible to help a variety of refractive errors with specialized lenses. 

Contact lenses should only be worn after a proper exam and fitting. This way, you get lenses that fit your eye exactly, optimized to correct your vision. The better the fit, the more comfortable the lenses will be!

What is a Contact Lens Fitting?

It all starts with a comprehensive eye exam. Our optometrists evaluate how well you see (through various tests) and determine the correction required for each eye. The exam will also look for tell-tale signs of any developing eye disease and ensure you are a good candidate for regular contact lens use.

The Eye Care Team doctors will train you on inserting and removing your lenses – and we know it takes a little practice if it’s your first time! Then we’ll send you home with a trial pair to see how they feel after a few days’ use. That’s all there is to it!

Questions About Contact Lenses?

Once you get used to adding and removing them from your eyes every day, lenses offer a convenient and practical way to see clearly. Many people find that their lifestyle demands contact lenses, especially those who work outdoors or compete in athletics.

Specific individuals may not be valid candidates for contact lenses. For everyone else, contact lenses offer a set of benefits that appeals to many different lifestyles.

Many lenses are daily disposables, which means they are designed to last a single day. Other replacement schedules, including weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly contacts are options as well. We will determine the best replacement schedule for your lifestyle.

Nowadays, there are contact lenses designed to treat virtually all refractive errors. Following your exam with one of our optometrists, they will provide you with relevant information about the available options to you personally. From there, you can make your own decision and leave with the perfect lenses for your eyes!

Types of Contact Lenses

The Eye Care Team offers a variety of contact lenses for different vision needs. Remember that contact lenses are considered a medical device and require a prescription. Respecting your vision with a contact lens exam and fitting before selecting a lens type will help prevent complications related to improper lens use.

The science behind contact lenses is continually advancing, making soft contact lenses an option for more people every day. These lenses are typically available in various disposable formats, including daily, bi-weekly, or monthly, to best suit your vision needs and lifestyle.

RGP contact lenses are typically used by patients with high prescriptions or strong astigmatism and offer excellent acuity. This style of contact lens is prescribed less frequently and is meticulously designed to suit individual corneas. RGP contact lenses are made from durable materials, which means they only need to be replaced annually.

Aspheric contact lenses are lenses designed for individuals with mild astigmatism. Astigmatism occurs when a patient’s cornea or lens is irregularly shaped. To compensate for the unique curvature caused by astigmatism, specially shaped contact lenses are needed.

Although individuals with high astigmatism are often prescribed toric contact lenses, aspheric lenses are another way for individuals with low astigmatism to achieve crisper, clearer vision.

Toric lenses are also used to correct astigmatism. Toric lenses contain different prescriptions along the horizontals and verticals of the lens. This gives them the ability to counteract astigmatism and provide patients with clear, crisp vision. 

Toric lenses are weighted at the bottom to orientate themselves properly when you blink, ensuring the different powers sit in the correct positions.

Multifocal contact lenses work to help control myopia or can be used as a corrective solution for those who have presbyopia. Presbyopia occurs as we age and affects the lenses in our eyes, making it difficult to focus on objects that are up close. 

Multifocal contact lenses offer multiple prescriptions in a single lens. These specially designed contact lenses can ensure your vision is clear at all distances. They often work for those who do not need distance correction, as well as those who are nearsighted or farsighted.

Safe, Comfortable Contact Lenses

The Eye Care Team believes in a responsible contact lens approach. This means completing a comprehensive eye exam, determining your contact lens prescription (which is often different from a spectacle prescription), and fitting your eyes for a lens that will meet all of your needs.

Your eyes will be happy when you’ve taken the steps to make sure your new contact lenses are safe and comfortable. It’s time to see clearly without eyeglasses, so book a contact lens exam and fitting today.
