Contact Lenses and Eye Care Professionals at Vision World

Contact Lenses and Eye Care Professionals at Vision World

For millions, contact lenses provide a safe and effective alternative to eyeglasses. Like the proper fit of shoes, contacts must be expertly fitted for cornea health and comfort with a Contact Lens and Eye Examination at Vision World. One contact lens size doesn’t fit all. If the curvature of a contact lens is too flat or too steep for your eye’s shape, you could experience corneal discomfort or even eye damage. Here’s what to expect during a comprehensive Contact Lens Exam at Vision World Garden City:

Lifestyle and vision goals: You will be asked general questions about your lifestyle and preferences regarding contact lenses, such as whether you’re involved in sports or if you’re interested in options such as daily disposable lenses or overnight (extended) wear. Your eye doctor may also discuss the option of rigid gas permeable (RGP or GP) contact lenses. Although most people today are fitted with soft lenses, some patients with high amounts of astigmatism or other irregular corneal conditions benefit from the high degree of vision correction offered by GP lenses.

Over 40+ Vision: Your eye doctor may ask you about how you might want to correct vision problems related to aging. At about age 40 or maybe older, you may develop a condition known as presbyopia that decreases your ability to see clearly at close distances. To correct presbyopia, your eye doctor at Garden City Vision World may offer you the choice of multifocal or bifocal contact lenses or monovision. With monovision one contact lens corrects for near vision and the other contact lens corrects for distance vision.

Eye Measurement and Curvature: The doctor or contact lens technician will use an instrument called a keratometer to measure the curvature of your eye’s clear front surface called the cornea. These measurements or K-readings help your eye professional determine the proper curve and size for your contact lenses.

Pupil and Iris Measurements: Some types of contact lens fitting require that your doctor knows the size of your pupils in different lighting conditions as well as the diameter of your cornea. Pupil and iris measurements help achieve a proper sizing and orientation of your contact lens.

Eye Surface Examination and Contact Lens Fit: The health of your cornea will be evaluated using a biomicroscope or slit lamp. This information is critical for determining the type of contact lens & wear schedule, as well as establish a baseline for your doctor to evaluate any future changes to your eyes related to contact lens wear.

Follow-up Visits and Eye Health Exams: Maintaining your eye health with contacts. Your eye doctor may place a special dye (fluorescein staining) on your eye to check for defects and make sure your contact lenses are not damaging your eye’s surface. Once you are successfully fitted for contact lenses, keep in mind that your eyes will need to be examined once annually so that your eye doctor can monitor the health of your eyes. Some patients may need contact lens progress evaluations prior to the annual visit.
