Glasses: Not the Only Way to Correct Vision

Glasses might not be your only choice for vision correction. Contact lenses allow many people to correct vision problems—no bulky frames required.

Whether you want a brief break from glasses or an everyday lifestyle change, our eye doctors will help you find contacts that suit your needs.

What Is a Contact Lens Exam?

A contact lens exam is your first step toward getting contact lenses. It’s like an eye exam with some additional questions and measurements to help us match you with the right products.

During a contact lens exam, we’ll determine:

We’ll also use the measurements we take to help you find options that fit comfortably. We might gather information about your pupils, irises, corneas, and tear film.

The Trial Lens Period

Near the end of your contact lens exam, we provide you with trial lenses to test at home. If you’re happy with how they fit and function, we’ll order you a longer supply and teach you how to care for them properly. 

We’ll also schedule you for a follow-up exam so we can make sure your eyes are adjusting properly to the new lenses.

Types of Contact Lenses

Soft Contact Lenses

Soft contacts are popular with many people due to their affordability and ease of use. These lenses are made from silicone hydrogel, which lets oxygen through to the eye. Many different soft contact lenses exist, including daily disposable and extended wear options.

Rigid gas-permeable (RGP) lenses are more durable than soft contacts due to the silicone compounds used in their construction. However, these lenses can also take some getting used to because of how they sit in the eye. The firm shape of RGP lenses helps them correct vision problems caused by corneal irregularities.

Some contact lenses are specially designed for specific purposes. Some examples include:

  • Aspheric: Often used to correct cases of low astigmatism, these lenses are designed to have a thinner and flatter shape.
  • Toric: Commonly recommended for cases of moderate astigmatism, these lenses have 2 different prescriptions along the horizontal and vertical axes.
  • Multifocal: Frequently used to correct presbyopia, these lenses contain a gradient with many different prescriptions along their surface.
