Contact Lens Evaluations And Fittings

Yearly contact lens evaluations are required to ensure your contacts are providing the ideal vision, comfort and health. Contact lens related complications can be subtle and a careful exam is necessary to determine whether your lenses are still suitable.

For new contact lens fits, your optometrist will select the best contacts and solution on an individual basis. This will be based on prescription, desired frequency of wear, hobbies, etc.

Types Of Contact Lenses Include:

Soft Contact Lenses
Exciting advancements in contacts are always developing, and now more people than ever can be fit with soft contact lenses. They are available in spherical, astigmatic and bifocals designs with various replacement frequencies such as daily, biweekly, or monthly. Your optometrist will determine which contacts are the best fit for you and your lifestyle.

Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Contact Lenses
RGP’s are most frequently used for high prescriptions, especially high amounts of astigmatism. Less frequently used, these contacts are more specific to the individual and are replaced on an annual basis.

Specialty Contact Lens Fits
Patients with keratoconus and irregular corneas require specialty contact lenses to provide the best vision. They are a more complicated fit, and require a skilled optometrist.
