Beyond the Frame
Contact lenses are great options for many people, but there are still some who think their conditions mean they’re stuck with glasses. However, modern contacts offer versatility that would have been considered unimaginable in the past. Some impairments modern contacts can correct include:
- Astigmatism, which occurs when part of the inner surface of the eye is curved in one direction differently than the other
- Keratoconus, caused by a thinning of the cornea that distorts vision
- Presbyopia (age-related farsightedness), caused by stiffening of the lens within the eye as one gets older
- Myopia (nearsightedness), which results from overly long eyes or a steeply curved cornea
- Hyperopia (farsightedness), occurring when the eye is too short
Finding the Right Contacts for You
When you are ready for contact lenses we will schedule a lens evaluation examination, which may resemble an ordinary eye exam in many ways. The surface shape of your cornea may be mapped and certain characteristics such as the overall moisture of your eyes may be determined. You may require specialty lenses if you have dry eyes or astigmatism. We specialize in fitting hard-to-fit or specialty contacts. Once a prescription has been determined, you will usually be given a sample to try out, which may need to be changed, depending on how well they work for you. More than one change may be necessary, but most lens wearers consider the process worth it, once they find their perfect contacts.
