Contact Lens Fittings Edina

Contact lenses are an excellent alternative if you’re tired of wearing glasses or just looking for more versatility in your everyday eyewear. Contacts can be used as a primary source of vision correction instead of glasses. But some patients utilize them only as a secondary option, for special occasions, sports, or even weekends. Our Edina doctors want you to be comfortable and flexible to accommodate your busy schedule. We encourage you to schedule an appointment at our Edina Clinic if you’re interested in wearing contact lenses. One of our doctors would be happy to help you get started with the process.

At Art of Optiks Edina, we prioritize providing our clients with the best possible contact lens consultations and fitting services. Our doctors will take the time to get to know you and your eye care needs, to ensure that contacts are the best choice for your lifestyle. Thanks to our combined years of experience, we will be able to provide you with an informative visit that will meet all of your contact lens needs.

Edina Contact Lens Consultation

Our Edina doctors are committed to keeping up with new developments in the contact lens industry. There are continually innovations that improve comfort, convenience, and accessibility for contact wearers. First, our doctors will need to determine whether you’re a good candidate for contact lenses, which involves consideration of a few different factors. We will inquire about your lifestyle and health habits that could impact which kind of contacts are best for you. Certain eye conditions, such as astigmatism and dry eye syndrome, make wearing contacts hard. Our doctors will thoroughly evaluate your vision needs to make sure contacts are right for you. Some of the lenses offered at our practice include:

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

Along with our contact lens consultation is a one-on-one class at our Edina clinic to help you feel comfortable with contacts. We know the transition from glasses to contacts can be difficult and intimidating, and if contacts are entirely new to you, it can be uncomfortable. Our skilled technicians will show you proper insertion and removal procedures to ease any hesitations you may have and build your confidence.

Dry Eye

Dry eye is a condition that is actually more common than you may think. This condition occurs when your eyes aren’t getting adequate lubrication from your tears. Common symptoms of dry eye include:

 

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

 

Some people may feel that their dryness limits their success in contacts. But we are here at our Edina clinic with solutions tailored just for you! Not only do we use the very best technology to combat your dryness, but our doctors actually have contacts to treat dry eye disease!

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is very common and refers to the irregular shape of the front surface of the eye. This irregular curvature causes blending of light rays or improper refraction. Common symptoms of astigmatism include:

 

  • Blurry or Distorted Vision
  • Eyestrain
  • Headaches
  • Squinting or Discomfort

 

Individuals experiencing mild to moderate astigmatism can usually find relief with eyeglasses or contact lenses as the correction compensates for uneven curves in your cornea and lens. If you’re noticing any of these symptoms, our Edina eye doctors can conduct a comprehensive eye exam to determine further if you have astigmatism.

Contact Lens Fitting

It is the goal of our doctors at the Edina clinic to pair you with comfortable contact lenses. Your eyes are unique to you, and everyone will require a different lens. Before a patient can be fitted with contact lenses, it’s suggested to schedule a comprehensive eye exam to verify your eyes are healthy for contact lens wear. Our doctors will also ensure that no underlying conditions exist that could prevent you from contact lens use. During the appointment, we will help you learn how to put your contacts in, let you try them out to make sure they’re comfortable, and decide if the type chosen is the right fit for your lifestyle. Our doctors will take various eye measurements to ensure the lenses fit properly and have all the right angles and curvature to fit the shape of your eyes.

  • Corneal Curvature
  • Pupil Size
  • Tear Film Evaluation

Our goal at the Edina clinic is to make sure you have an excellent contact lens experience, ensuring your contact lenses fit comfortably and correctly. We offer various materials, types, sizes, and colors of contact lenses for all patients. Please bring up any questions you may have or contact brands you are interested in trying during your contact fitting appointment.

Learning to Use Contacts

We recommend that first-time contact wearers go through a contact lens fitting process, so you and our doctors feel comfortable with your prescription. Many patients require one fitting session, but there are situations when multiple appointments are necessary. Our doctors will provide you with personalized care instructions crafted to your unique needs regarding your contact lenses. Throughout your appointment, the following contact lens care guidelines and tips will be discussed:

 

  • Lens Cleaning
  • Correct Insertion and Removal Procedures
  • General Instructions
  • Possible Abnormal Symptoms
  • Cleaning Solutions
  • Rewetting Drops

 

Deciding to wear contact lenses can be a big transition from glasses, and our doctors want to make sure you have all the necessary information to aid your utmost comfort. We’re available to answer any additional questions or concerns you may have while you’re getting used to your new contact lenses.

Follow-Up Exams

Once we determine the correct prescription for you, you will be on your way to getting comfortable in your contact lenses! Our Edina clinic doctors might recommend a follow-up appointment to ensure your lenses fit properly and that your eyes have adjusted to the change. We want to make sure the contact lenses chosen for you are comfortable and help you see correctly. By scheduling a follow-up appointment, and an annual contact lens exam, you will be able to stay up to date with your eye health. If you do find yourself experiencing dryness or discomfort, contact one of our eye doctors as soon as possible. These signs usually tell us that our doctors need to choose a different lens or disinfecting solution. Regardless, we are here for you and all of your eye care needs.
