Contact lenses are a great alternative to wearing eyeglasses. Every patient is different. Some individuals just wear their contact lenses on the weekends or during sports, while others wear them every day. The beauty of contact lenses is the flexibility they give to our patients for their active and busy lifestyles.
If you decide to opt for contact lenses, it is important that the lenses fit properly and comfortably; and that you understand contact lens safety and hygiene. That is why a contact lens exam at CEA will include both a comprehensive eye exam to check your overall eye health, your general vision prescription, and a contact lens consultation and measurement to determine the proper lens fit.
When it comes to contact lenses, one size does not fit all. Our Optometrists will take some measurements to ensure your lenses fit properly; thus, avoiding discomfort, blurry vision, or even damage to the eye that can result from an incorrect contact lens fitting. Some of the measurements taken are: corneal curvature, pupil or iris size, and tear film evaluation. In addition to these measurements, the doctor will ask questions to determine your needs, desires, and lifestyle habits. We are committed to make sure that you are in the best contact lenses for your comfort, sight, and eye health.
