Our ophthalmologist conducts comprehensive exams to detect any potential eye problems early on. We highly recommend scheduling regular eye check-up appointments with an ophthalmologist.

What Are Contact Lenses?

Contact lenses are worn to correct vision problems. These thin lenses are placed on the outer layer of your eye. Similar to eyeglasses, contact lenses aid in correcting vision issues caused by refractive errors. Refractive errors such as distorted vision, farsightedness, nearsightedness, and age-related farsightedness occur when the eye fails to bend or focus light properly, resulting in blurriness.

Corrective lenses come in either hard or soft varieties. Depending on your needs, you can choose between daily disposable or extended wear options. Advancements in technology have introduced cosmetic or prosthetic contact lenses. While these lenses can alter the appearance of your eye, they do not correct vision. Cosmetic lenses can also be used to conceal certain eye irregularities or abnormalities.

Obtaining Your Contact Lenses

Our ophthalmologist first determines the ideal level of vision correction for you. This process begins with a contact lens exam, during which we measure how your eye focuses with various lenses. Once we identify your eye’s refractive error, our ophthalmologist assists you in deciding whether contact lenses or eyeglasses would be more suitable. Conditions like dry eyes, allergies, and specific eye conditions may be better addressed with eyeglasses.

Additionally, our ophthalmologist can provide guidance on selecting the best cosmetic or prosthetic lens. It’s essential to consult an eye care professional to prevent potential eye damage, as cosmetic lenses may lead to infections or other issues.
