Contact Lenses For Added Comfort & Clarity

Contact lenses are small plastic discs worn to correct refractive errors by smoothing the corneal surface. Millions of people worldwide use contact lenses for vision correction for crisp, clear vision without the bulk of eyeglasses.

Contact lenses are medical devices that require proper care to ensure safe and successful long-term wear. Keeping contacts clean is the most critical aspect to avoid eye infections and other eye injuries. Some useful tips to follow are:

  • Always wash and dry your hands before touching your eyes and face.
  • Always clean and disinfect your contact lenses after removal and before insertion.
  • Store your contact lenses in a clean, disinfected contact lens case.
  • Replace your contact lens case every 3 months.
  • Only use doctor-recommended contact lens solution and disinfectant.
  • Always follow the recommended contact lens replacement schedule as prescribed by your eye doctor.
  • Remove your contact lenses before sleeping, showering, or swimming.

Types of Contact Lenses

The most common contact lenses are soft contact lenses made of a flexible material called silicone hydrogel. However, we also offer a variety of specialty contact lenses for different eye conditions and hard-to-fit eyes. Some of our specialty lenses include:

To evaluate your eyes properly for contact lenses, we’ll perform a few tests to ensure you source the best brand for your eyes. Ill-fitting contact lenses can cause permanent damage to your eyes and even vision loss.

Corneal topography is a diagnostic tool used to measure the curvature of your cornea. The scan works in a similar way to measuring a mountain on a topographic map by evaluating any irregular bumps on your cornea.

Optical coherence tomography is a noninvasive imaging technology used to obtain high-resolution images of the retina. The images are a cross-section view of the retina to show the retina’s different layers and their thickness.

Both technologies allow us to detect and diagnose certain corneal irregularities and other eye conditions that may require specific specialty contact lenses. Please give us a call if you have any questions!
