Contact Lens Fittings
While contact lenses offer many advantages over eyeglasses, it's important to find lenses that fit you properly. If you need new contacts or are ready to start wearing contact lenses for the first time, contact Eyes & Optics in Las Vegas to schedule an appointment with Dr. Malik for a contact lens fitting.
What to Expect During a Contact Lens Fitting
If this is your first contact lens fitting, you may feel a bit overwhelmed. Thankfully, you don't have anything to worry about. Here's what you can expect during your appointment.
An Eye Exam
Eye exams are an important part of any contact lens fitting. During your fitting, our optometrist will check your vision and take measurements of your eye. Since your contact lens will rest right on your eye, it's important to have accurate measurements so that you know what size of contacts you need.
Assessing Your Eye Health
Not everyone is a good candidate for contacts. If you have an eye condition that affects the health of your eye, you may not be able to wear standard contacts. Thankfully, there are other options available, like specialty contact lenses.
If you have a condition like dry eye, the eye doctor may suggest treating your symptoms before you wear contacts. While certain issues can make it harder for you to wear contacts, we should be able to tell you more about different types of contact lenses. You may discover that there's an option that fits all your needs.
Choosing the Right Type of Contact Lenses
There are all kinds of contact lenses on the market today, which means you can compare different options. During your fitting, our optometrist will ask you questions about your habits and lifestyle. This will allow us to make recommendations and suggest contacts that you might like.
One popular solution is daily disposable lenses. When you wear these contacts, you won't have to clean and disinfect your contacts at the end of each day. Instead, you can throw out your contacts and put in new ones in the morning.
You will be able to try on contacts during your fitting, which means you can make sure the lenses you choose are comfortable before our eye doctor writes your prescription. If you need specialty lenses, you may have to come back at a later date.
