SPECIALTY CONTACT LENS FITTING
There are many different eye conditions that require specific kinds of contact lenses, so finding the right kind isn’t always easy. There are lenses designed for certain eye conditions, such as astigmatism, dry eyes, keratoconus, and more. However, we believe that comfort is also very important when it comes to giving you good vision.
The field of optometry changes quickly, and now many more patients can enjoy the flexibility of wearing contact lenses to correct their vision. Contact lens exams include tests that are not always performed in regular eye exams, so if you are considering contact lenses, be sure to let us know when you schedule your exam. This allows us to schedule the extra time required for contact lens fitting or prescription updates.
Scheduling your general eye exam and your contact lens exam for the same visit will save you time and money. Performing these exams at different locations or with different optometrists can lead to repeated tests and additional fees.
Our contact lens exams include questions about your lifestyle and the various options available to you. There are a variety of contact lenses on the market that can be changed at different frequencies: daily, weekly, monthly. Rigid gas permeable (RGP or GP) contact lenses are an option that often provide sharper vision than traditional soft lenses. Bifocal contact lenses are an option to correct vision issues that develop with age (presbyopia). So is monovision, which is a special technique where one eye corrects for distance vision and the other eye corrects for near vision. Some contacts even allow you to change eye color.

Contact Lens Tips
Wearing contact lenses will increase your risk of eye infections. All types of contact lenses reduce the amount of oxygen that reaches your eyes, which can promote infection. Proper cleaning and disinfection of your contact lenses is very important. Here are some tips:
- Always wash, rinse and dry your hands thoroughly before handling your contacts
- Use multipurpose contact lens solutions with caution. If a solution has become discolored, do not use it. Discoloration might mean that the product is out-of-date or contaminated. To enhance the cleaning performance of the solution, gently rub the lenses for a few seconds.
- If you have daily wear contacts, make sure to take them out before you go to sleep. Infections are more common if you extend the wear of your contacts.
- Follow your eyecare professional’s instructions for taking care of your lenses. Use only sterile products that are commercially prepared specifically for contact lens care, and make sure you use lens care products formulated for the type of lenses you wear.
- Replace your contact lenses as recommended. If one or both lenses bother you before you’re due to replace them, get them checked or try a new set — if you have a supply.
- Replace your contact lens case every three to six months.
- Rinse your contact lens case every time the lenses are disinfected. Don’t “top off” old solution that’s already in the case.
