Contact lenses are some of the best eye care tools that you can use to help you see clearly and improve your quality of life. With the help of the right pair of contact lens, you can find it easier to complete simple tasks such as studying, watching tv, or a plethora of other activities that require good vision.

To do so, an optometrist on our optometry team can provide you with an eye exam so you can get set up with the right pair of contact lenses and see clearly.
Do I Need a Contact Lens Eye Exam?
When it comes to contact lenses, it's not one size fits all. In fact, contact lenses have their own set of challenges for some people, such as people that need contact lenses for different prescriptions, or people that have other types of eye diseases that contact lenses can do little to fix.
A contact lens exam can allow an optometrist on our optometry team to take a deep look at your eyes and determine the right prescription to help you see clearly. Contact lenses work by being fitted directly over the lens of an eye, therefore shifting the way light focuses into the eye and producing a clear picture.
However, the shape of the contact lens may be different for each person. An eye doctor on our optometry team can provide you a prescription for your contact lenses to help get you the best results.
How Can an Eye Doctor Help if I Can't Use Regular Contacts?
For some people, regular contacts won't be able to help them see clearly. This includes people with conditions such as keratoconus, which is a thinning of the cornea that causes irregularities.
Other conditions like cataracts and glaucoma might mimic refractive errors, but are actually quite serious and will require further treatment. An optometrist on our optometry team can help you find the best types of contact lenses, such as scleral lenses or hybrid lenses, to improve your comfort levels.
The right types of contacts from an eye doctor can make all the difference in helping you see clearly.
