Contact Lens Consultation

Our doctors stay well-informed about the ongoing advancements in the contact lens industry, always striving to enhance comfort, convenience, and accessibility for wearers. When determining if contact lenses are the right choice for you, several key factors are taken into account.

 

Our doctors invest time in understanding your lifestyle and overall health, carefully assessing how these factors influence the optimal contact lens options for your unique needs. Specific eye conditions, such as astigmatism and dry eye syndrome, can present unique challenges, and our doctors conduct thorough evaluations to ensure that contact lenses are a suitable fit for you. Our diverse range of lens options includes:

  • Daily Disposables
  • Monthly Disposables
  • Toric Lenses for Astigmatism
  • Multifocals
  • Monovision
  • Toric Multifocals
  • Scleral Lenses
  • Ortho-Keratology
  • RGPs
  • Hybrid Lenses

In conjunction with our contact lens consultation, you’ll receive a personalized one-on-one session designed to help you become comfortable with contact lenses. Transitioning from glasses to contacts can be a bit daunting, particularly for newcomers. Our experienced technicians will provide step-by-step guidance on proper insertion and removal techniques, effectively addressing any uncertainties and bolstering your confidence.

Dry Eye

Dry eye is a more prevalent condition than you might think. It occurs when your eyes don’t have enough lubrication from tears, leading to symptoms such as:

 

  • Stinging and Burning
  • Blurred Vision
  • Scratchy or Gritty Feeling
  • Redness or Irritation

 

For some individuals, dryness can impact the comfort of wearing contact lenses. But don’t fret; we’re here with customized solutions specifically for you! We utilize cutting-edge technology to effectively address dryness. And here’s the exciting part – our doctors even offer contact lenses designed to treat dry eye disease!

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a highly prevalent condition characterized by an irregular shape of the eye’s front surface. This uneven curvature disrupts the proper bending of light rays, leading to symptoms such as:

 

  • Blurry or Distorted Vision
  • Eyestrain
  • Headaches
  • Discomfort or the Need to Squint

 

Individuals with mild to moderate astigmatism frequently discover relief through the use of eyeglasses or contact lenses. These corrections effectively counteract the irregular corneal and lens curves. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, our doctors are available to conduct a comprehensive eye examination to determine whether astigmatism is a factor.

Contact Lens Fitting

Your eyes are as distinct as you are, and our doctors are committed to finding the perfect, comfortable contact lenses for you. Before undergoing a contact lens fitting, it’s advisable to schedule a comprehensive eye examination to ensure your eyes are healthy for lens wear and to rule out any underlying issues that may impede their use. During this appointment, our doctors will walk you through the process of inserting and removing contacts, ensuring your comfort, and determining the most suitable type of contact lens for your lifestyle. They will also take precise measurements to ensure that the selected lens aligns perfectly with the unique contours of your eyes, considering factors like:

 

  • Corneal Curvature
  • Pupil Size
  • Tear Film Evaluation

 

Our primary goal is to provide you with an exceptional contact lens experience, guaranteeing a proper and comfortable fit. We offer a wide range of contact lens types, materials, sizes, and even colors. Feel free to ask any questions during your fitting, and if you have specific preferences regarding contact lens brands, please let us know. Your satisfaction and comfort remain our utmost priorities.
