Once the ocular health is assessed and the glasses prescription is determined from the comprehensive exam, we have the information to proceed with a contact lens fitting. The fitting is priced separately and varies depending on the patient's visual needs and type of contact lenses needed. The process includes in most cases a trial pair of lenses and any follow-up appointments needed to refine the fit.
There are many types of contact lenses available today. Our doctors will discuss whether or not you are a good candidate for contacts, and the options that may work best for your type of vision correction.
Contact lenses are available for a wide variety of prescriptions and conditions. We are experts in fitting the most challenging prescriptions and conditions, including:
- Myopia (Nearsightedness)
- Hyperopia (Farsightedness)
- Astigmatism ( Irregularly shaped cornea)
- Presbyopia (a condition in which near print becomes difficult to see)
- Aphakia ( no internal lens exists)
- Keratoconus ( a very irregular cornea that becomes progressively worse)
- Post Lasik/PRK, corneal transplant, and other corneal disorders
- Aniridia or other iris deformities (no iris exists, or damage to the iris makes it difficult to see)
- Cosmetic lenses for certain conditions (Aniridia, damage to iris, mis-matched irises)
