Are Contact Lenses a Good Option For You?
While we love the convenience and aesthetic value of contact lenses, they aren’t for everyone. During your eye exam we will go over your options for corrective lenses – including contacts – and determine which options make the most sense for you.
After your eye exam and measuring, we will likely present you with trials from leading manufacturers that fit your prescription. These trials will give you an opportunity to try a few different styles of contacts to determine which you are happiest with.
We Will Run You Through Contact Lens “Do’s and Don’ts”
From how to put them in to how often you should have your prescription updated, we will provide you with the information you need to enjoy wearing contact lenses.
- Always put your contact lenses in solution – Water, saliva, soda water, and anything else that is not a specifically-prepared contact lens solution can cause damage to both your contacts and your eyes.
- Do not wear your contacts overnight – Unless otherwise specified, contact lenses should not be worn overnight. Doing so may cause irritation, redness, and potentially significant discomfort.
- Do not wear contacts if you have an eye injury – You may not think that small scratch on your eye is that bad until you cover it with a contact lens- ouch! Let your eye breathe and heal after an injury and wear glasses instead.
