Flexible Vision Correction with Contacts

If glasses aren’t for you, you may be a great candidate for contact lenses. Contacts are thin lenses that are curved to fit your eye and contain your prescription to correct any vision errors. Since contact lenses sit right on top of your tear film, the prescription can differ from those in a framed lens. 

Contacts can be a great option for those living an active lifestyle, working outdoors, or for those who prefer not to have glasses resting on their face.

Caring For Your Contacts

A key part of the success of your contact lenses is caring for them properly. Here are some tips for maintaining your contacts:

  • Make sure to disinfect your contacts with contact solution only.
  • Do not sleep in your contact lenses.
  • Wash your hands before putting in your contacts.
  • Attend regular eye exams.
  • Don’t use medicated eye drops while wearing contacts.

What to Expect During a Contact Lens Exam & Fitting

Since a contact lens is sitting right on top of the surface of your eye, specialty exams and fittings are needed to get a proper fit and determine your contact lens prescription. 

A contact lens exam and fitting is an important factor in determining which type of contact lens may be right for you, as there are many types of contact lenses, including specialty lenses.

A contact lens exam is similar to a comprehensive eye exam, where a doctor will evaluate your eyes for any refractive errors, such as presbyopia or myopia and determine your contact lens prescription. The health of your eyes will also be examined to see if you have any eye conditions or diseases that may interfere with contact lens wear, such as dry eye.

During this exam, your doctor may consult with you about your lifestyle and habits to determine if you may be a good candidate for contact lenses. Follow-up exams may be required in order to check on the fit, comfort, and effectiveness of your contacts.

Once the contact lens exam has been completed and you are determined to be a good candidate for contacts, you can go through a contact lens fitting to see what type of contact might be best suited for your eye. 

During this fitting, certain measurements, such as the overall eye, pupil, curvature, and tear chemistry, need to be taken in order to get a comfortable fit on your contacts.

Our Speciality Contacts

In addition to our single-vision lenses, we offer a variety of specialty contacts to suit your vision needs. Enjoy the freedom and comfort of contacts, even with conditions like astigmatism and myopia. 

Multifocal contact lenses are contacts that contain 2 different prescriptions to assist with seeing objects that are both close and far. Multifocals can be a great option as you age, as you often need different corrective lenses for activities like reading and driving.

Orthokeratology, also known as ortho-k, is the use of specific contact lenses that reshape the cornea over time in order to correct vision problems, most commonly myopia. These contacts can be implemented in childhood to correct myopia before it progresses into adulthood.

You’ve probably heard of transition lenses, but did you know there are transition contact lenses? Transitions contact lenses use special technology to adapt to the amount of light in your environment. This also includes blue light filtering and UV light filtering technology.

Rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses are made of a thicker material compared to softer lenses. RGP lenses are often used to correct astigmatism, presbyopia, and myopia. They can be a suitable option when soft lenses don’t provide optimal vision correction.

Scleral contact lenses are RPG lenses that rest in the sclera of the eye around the cornea. These types of lenses can be great for those with astigmatism, in which the cornea is slightly misshapen, causing blurriness in your vision. Scleral lenses also tend to be most comfortable for those with dry eye as there is space between the lens and the eye’s surface. 

MiSight 1 day soft contact lenses are used to slow the progression of myopia in children and come in a single-use form. It was found that MiSight contact lenses reduced the rate of myopia in children by between 52%-59%.
