With just a little bit of preparation, in the form of our contact lens exams and fittings, you can put the odds in your favor for having a smooth, comfortable, problem-free experience when you wear contacts.
A contact lens exam contains the elements of a regular checkup, but with the added aspects of paying attention to the parts of your eyes that are going to be touching our Elmont contact lenses. Those parts are the conjunctiva, corneas, and eyelids. Our goal is to detect any potential complications or issues beforehand. In some cases, the result may be that you may be better suited to eyeglasses. Or you could require some form of treatment in order to get the most out of our Elmont contact lenses. In the majority of cases, however, you will be able to proceed with peace of mind. Our eye doctor will also note the curvature of your corneas, which is a key part of writing the perfect prescription. The fitting is another feature, in which the ideal fit can be established. Your contacts should feel “right” and should also be properly centered so that your vision correction will be optimal. There are both soft contacts and hard one, which are sometimes referred to as rigid or gas-permeable. Our fittings will allow you to decide which is most to your liking. Not everyone feels at ease with hard lenses, even though they are best for addressing severe nearsightedness and astigmatism, and also provide the sharpest and clearest vision possible. There is no reason to worry, though. Soft lenses have many benefits, too, including being available in several types to meet your lifestyle preferences.
To get all of the advantages you can out of our Elmont contact lenses, call us right now and book a contact lens exam and fitting.
