Getting Contact Lenses
Contacts are a fantastic alternative for traditional glasses! However, they are not for everyone. We have a contact lens process for each patient to help determine if contact lenses will help our patients achieve their vision goals.
There are 3 steps in this process:
The eye exam is the first step we take with every patient interested in contact lenses.
Eye exams help us determine the prescription you need and can help spot any potential issues that may prevent you from wearing contact lenses comfortably. Contact lenses may not be right for you if:
The fitting process is to take detailed measurements of your eye’s corneal parameters, including its shape and size, to help make sure your contacts rest comfortably when you wear them.
Once we have determined your prescription and type of contact lenses you need, the next step will be trying them on! We will provide you with a trial pair of contact lenses you can wear for a few weeks to see how your eyes adapt and adjust.
We will also book follow up appointments to ensure your contacts are doing their job.
If we determine the contacts are a good match for you, we can order your next supply of contact lenses whenever you need them!
