Contact Lenses & Scleral Lenses
Explore Alternatives to Traditional Eyewear
Whether you want to be free from glasses for practical or aesthetic reasons, there are multiple alternative vision correction options. Contact lenses are more commonly known and used, while scleral lenses provide an enhanced experience and can be the preferred choice for certain corneal conditions.
Eye Exams for Contact Lenses
Contact lenses are a great alternative to wearing eyeglasses. An often unknown fact is that not all patients wear contact lenses as their primary source of vision correction. Each patient is different, with some patients wearing contact lenses only on weekends, special occasions or just for sports. That is the beauty of contact lens wear, the flexibility it gives each individual patient and their lifestyle.
If you decide to opt for contact lens wear, it is very important that the lenses fit properly and comfortably and that you understand contact lens safety and hygiene. A contact lens exam will include both a comprehensive eye exam to check your overall eye health, your general vision prescription and then a contact lens consultation and measurement to determine the proper lens fit.
