If you would like the convenience and other benefits that contact lenses can bring your lifestyle, discuss this with your doctor. If you are a candidate, your doctor will outline the different options that will suit your needs.
Contact lenses come in many forms—single vision, multifocal, astigmatism, RGP’s (rigid gas-permeable lenses). There are lenses you can wear for a day, a month, two weeks, or conventional lenses that last up to a year. Contact lenses are made from different products to accommodate for comfort.
The Doctor will review your wearing schedule to determine how long you can safely wear your contact lenses to allow the correct oxygen flow to your eyes.
Professional Assessment – Eye Recommend doctors are trained in optics, eye health and anatomy and understand the importance of educating patients about their contact lenses—which are considered a medical device—as well as fitting and dispensing contact lenses.
After a thorough eye health exam to determine if the eye is ready for contact lenses—which includes checking the back of the eye (retina), the visual acuity, the tear flow and the cornea (front surface of the eye) where the contact lens will rest—the optometrist will discuss the eye exam analysis and any vision disorders such as far sightedness, astigmatism or presbyopia.
The doctor will discuss case history, previous contact lens wearing experience, previous and current contact lens materials and types as well as new options available to offer extended wear, enhanced comfort, ultra violet protection, crisper, sharper vision and daily convenience. The eye doctor will recommend the contact lens best suited to your lifestyle, your visual needs and your eye health requirements.
Professional Fitting – Our doctors and trained optometric personnel will proceed to determine the exact size and style of contact lens that is right for your eyes by doing specific measurements of the front surface of the eye. These measurements done with the newest of technology and accuracy will then determine the base curve or back curve of the contact lens that will ensure a comfortable fit. Contact lenses that are not fitted properly can cause a multitude of problems including irritation, sore, itchy eyes, eye fatigue, redness, loss of oxygen to the eye causing dryness and reduced wearing times as well as corneal edema or swelling of the cornea.
Professional Training – Once selection of the type and modality of contact lens is selected then our certified Optometric Assistants will provide a complete training overview on the “EASY” insertion and removal of contact lens, the best way to clean and store lenses, wearing and replacement schedule as well as information on follow up appointments, warranties and exchanges which are also included in the price.
