Contact Lenses are NOT “one-size-fits-all.” Each contact lens fit
requires careful evaluation of the patient’s prescription, age,
corneal curvature, hobbies/lifestyle, and any other underlying
ocular conditions, such as dry eye or allergies.
Contacts are always being updated, modified, and improved, so
if you are wearing the same contact lens for the last 4 years our
optometrist will give you a free pair of newer, more healthy contacts to try.
Our optometrists look for three main goals in every contact lens fit:
Patients who have never worn contacts before are instructed carefully on everything there is to know about their custom lenses. Then, they demonstrate to our staff that they can successfully insert and remove the contact lenses by themselves before taking the lenses home. New wearers return in one week for the optometrist to evaluate the lens one more time before prescribing it.
