Contact Lens Fitting
Our fitting begins with answering any question you may have about contact lenses. The doctors will inquire about your work, lifestyle, hobbies, etc. to determine the type of lenses best fitted for your visual demand. The next step is to provide you with a set of trial lenses to wear for 1-2 weeks to decide whether the contacts are suitable for your eyes and your visual needs. Based on your feedback after the trial period, we will produce either a final prescription or order more trials for you.
We have an extensive in-office set of trial lenses that will fit most prescriptions. If your eyes require more specialized lenses, we are able to order such trials directly from manufacturers. A final prescription is written only after you are satisfied with the contacts.
Currently, soft and rigid gas-permeable contact lenses are available in single-vision, bifocal, and multifocal powers. Both types have lenses that made with special materials that transmit more oxygen to the cornea. Also in the market are lenses made with materials that will minimize dehydration for better comfort and longer lens wear without redness or irritation.
Please feel free to ask our staff or doctors for more contact lens information.
