Another Way to See Clearly

Glasses aren’t the only way to correct your vision! Contact lenses help many people see clearly without having to wearing, caring for, and storing bulky frames.

If you miss showing your whole face to the world, or if you’re simply looking for a way to enjoy certain activities without the risk of breaking your glasses, then contact lenses might be for you! Either way, our eye doctors will be happy to match you with comfortable and effective options.

Are Contact Lens Exams Different from Regular Eye Exams?

A contact lens exam typically includes everything in our regular eye exam, but it also has a few additional steps to help us find the best lenses for your needs.

During your contact lens exam, we’ll try to determine:

We also look at the physical characteristics of your eyes, including:

The End of the Exam

Once we’ve collected enough information about your eyes, we’ll provide a pair of trial lenses for you to wear for a short period. 

If you adjust to the contacts well, we’ll order more for you and teach you how to properly care for your new lenses. You might need to come back for a follow-up appointment or 2 so we can check and see how the new lenses are working after your eyes adjust to them.

Contact Lens Varieties

Soft Contacts

Soft contacts are safe to use, budget-friendly, and comfortable. They’re made from silicone hydrogel, which lets oxygen pass through the lens so the cornea can absorb it.

Soft contacts come in both daily disposable and extended wear varieties and can be made for eyes of many shapes and sizes. Our eye doctors will be happy to show you suitable choices.

Rigid gas-permeable (RGP) lenses are less flexible and more durable than soft contacts. They sit in front of the cornea and can compensate for irregularities on the eye’s surface (including those that cause astigmatism).

The silicone compounds used to make RGP lenses help prevent them from damaging as easily as some other types, but they can still come loose and get lost. If RGP lenses seem like the best option for you, we’ll tell you after we’ve examined your eyes.

Several types of contact lenses have special characteristics, such as:

  • Aspheric lenses, which have a flatter and thinner profile than other types, and are often suggested for correcting mild astigmatism.
  • Toric lenses, which have distinct horizontal and vertical axes with separate prescriptions for each. The shape of a toric lens is intended to help correct refractive problems in different eye areas, making them potentially useful for more severe cases of astigmatism.
  • Multifocal lenses, which are designed with a gradient along the surface to correct multiple prescriptions at once. Wearing these contacts lets you adjust your focus by looking through different parts of your visual field and may help correct presbyopia.
