Optometry Exam for Contacts

When you need corrective lenses, our eye doctor will perform several tests to check if contacts suit your eyes and visual correction needs. The next step is to examine your eye structure, measurements, and any relevant conditions, such as allergies. Measuring your eyes' curvature and shape lets our optometrist fit your contacts properly. A proper fit ensures eye comfort and improved vision.

Types of Contacts for Vision Correction

We offer several contact lenses to improve your vision and quality of life. There are contacts specifically designed to address vision needs and conditions, allowing people to wear contact lenses who may not have been able to.

Silicone Hydrogel Lenses

These types of contacts allow more oxygen to enter your eye. These lenses are useful to help protect your vision if your eyes need more oxygen. This type of contact can help preserve ocular health and allow you to use soft lenses.

Scleral Lenses

These lenses are designed to be more stable and sit more securely on the eye. This stability reduces the chances of the lenses shifting or falling out. In some cases, these lenses can provide greater comfort. If you have trouble wearing contacts, these may help.

Bifocal Lenses

These contacts work like traditional bifocal glasses, allowing you to improve both your far and near sight. Contact lenses, such as trifocal and progressive lenses, can be multifocal for vision solutions.

Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Lenses

These are a type of hard contact lens. Notable for providing stronger vision correction. You may prefer this type if your previous contacts were too weak in comparison. Many users prefer RGP lenses over soft lenses.

Hybrid Lenses

Hybrid contact lenses are a specialized type of contact lens designed to provide both the clear vision correction of RGP lenses and the comfort of soft contact lenses. These lenses seek to combine the best features of soft and hard lenses, providing visual clarity and comfort when worn.
