Our Optometrists Drs. Farrah, Tran and Wong Recommendations
In order to determine what type of contact lens best suits you, it is essential to start with a comprehensive eye exam to determine your prescription for glasses and check the overall health of the eye to ensure there are not health conditions that may interfere with successful contact lens wear. Our Optometrists will determine if you are a good candidate and proceed with the consultation and fitting process. In determining what lenses would be best suited for you, we take into consideration your lifestyle and your preferences regarding contact lenses, such as whether you might want to change your eye color with color contact lenses or if you’re interested in options such as daily disposables or overnight wear. Daily disposable or frequent replacement lenses are the best options due to a reduction in the rate of infection, improved comfort and less dryness experienced with the lenses as they are thrown out frequently.
Specialty Contact Lens Fittings
If you have high astigmatism, Keratoconus, corneal damage from injury/trauma, and glasses are unable to correct your vision or you would like to supplement glasses, there are numerous contact lens options available to provide significant vision improvement. Our Optometrists fit the following lenses:
Rigid gas permeable contact lenses (RGP) are made of an oxygen permeable rigid material that is smaller than the size of the corneal diameter. Their rigid property helps to mask corneal irregularity and provide clearer vision.
Hybrid contact lenses are designed with a rigid gas permeable lens center and a soft lens skirt to help lens centration and provide added comfort when wearing the lens.
Scleral lenses are a larger diameter rigid gas permeable lenses that vault over the entire cornea without touching the corneal surface.
Your contact lens fitting will involve follow-up visits so our doctor can confirm the lenses are fitting your eyes properly and that your eyes are able to tolerate contact lens wear.
Routine Contact Lens Exams
If you are a contact lens wearer, your eyes should be examined at least once a year to make sure your eyes are continuing to tolerate contact lens wear and show no signs of damage or over wear from the lenses. If you are interested in being fit with contact lenses or need to be trained, give our office a call and book an appointment with our Optometrists.
