Contact Lenses & You
Everyone’s eyes are unique, with different vision needs. As such, not every style of contact lens is suitable for everyone. Comprehensive eye exams and contact lens fittings both play integral roles in choosing the correct contact lenses for you.
With the advancements in contact lens technology, our team can provide contact lenses that address various vision problems. Securing the right fit is just as important as finding the right type of contact lenses you need.
Improperly fitted contact lenses are a safety hazard and can compromise the clarity of your vision and the health of your corneas.
The Exam Process
Finding the right contact lenses involves 3 crucial steps: the exam, the fitting, and the trial period.
Contact Lens Exam
We will examine your eyes during your contact lens exam to ensure that you don’t have any eye conditions that could interfere with and prevent you from wearing contact lenses.
If contact lenses are a suitable choice for you, we will also determine your contact lens prescription and conduct a visual acuity test. Your contact lens prescription is not the same as your eyeglasses prescription.
Contact Lens Fitting
Once we know that you are a good candidate for contact lenses, we will measure your eyes. Your eye measurements allow us to ensure that the contact lenses we give you are suitable based on the size and shape of your eyes.
Contact lenses come in many curvatures and diameters, so finding the right match is an essential part of ensuring your vision is clear and your eyes remain healthy and comfortable.
Corneal topography allows us to map the curvature, thickness, and shape of your corneas. This process is important so that we can determine if you have any corneal irregularities that may impact the type of contact lenses for you.
Contact Lens Trials
Our dedicated team will determine what style of contact lens is best suited for your unique vision needs. We will then send you home with a trial pair in your specific contact lens prescription. The trial pair of lenses allows you to determine whether or not your contacts are clear and comfortable.
Once you have had the time to test out your trial pair of lenses, we will meet with you again to find out if you are satisfied with the fit and if your eyes are adapting to the lenses. Our team will also give you a copy of your contact lens prescription.
If you are satisfied with your trial lenses, we can then begin ordering a supply of contact lenses for you. If the trial pair does not meet our high standards, we will continue trying different types of contact lenses until we find a style and brand that is clear, comfortable, and meets your needs.
Our Speciality Contact Lenses
Some patients may require specialized contact lenses that address various vision problems. At The Village Eye Care, we offer several different types of speciality lenses.
Toric lenses are specifically designed for patients with astigmatism. Unlike standard spherical contact lenses, toric lenses correct a variation in the prescription along the vertical and horizontal axes of the lenses.
Toric lenses need to maintain a specific orientation in order to work correctly, so they are specially designed to ensure they don’t rotate while you are wearing them.
Some patients require different prescriptions to correct their vision at different distances. Multifocal contact lenses contain multiple prescriptions in one lens and work similarly to multifocal eyeglasses.
Multifocal lenses are commonly prescribed for presbyopia, which is a condition that occurs as we age and affects our ability to focus on nearby objects.
Specialized Theatrical Lenses
Are you looking for spooky contact lenses to complete your Halloween costume? The Village Eye Care has you covered! Stop by our office to check out our wide selection of theatrical contact lenses.
Only order your contact lenses from a trusted source. Contact lenses that have not been properly prescribed, cared for, and purchased from a legitimate source, may cause serious medical problems.
Never share your contact lenses.
