A contact lens exam and fitting is similar to a comprehensive eye exam, except our optometrist will take measurements of your eyes to make sure that your contact lenses will fit your precisely. Our optometrist will also discuss the different types of contact lenses that are available to you, and which will work best with your particular vision situation. Finally, our optometrist will be able to review with you, ways for you to put contact lenses in your eyes, remove them, and clean them. This is particularly helpful if you are a first-time contact lens wearer. After you get your contact lens prescription from our optometrist, you will be able to purchase contacts in Jamaica Queens right here at our vision practice.
During our contact lens exam and fitting, our optometrist will test your eyes for many different eye diseases and disorders. Among the many eye problems that your eyes will be tested for are: cataracts; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; glaucoma; dry eye; retinal tears; and other problems of the cornea, retina, and macula. Your eyes will also be tested to see which type of refractive error you have. Whether you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, you will be able to comfortably wear contact lenses. Today, even patients who have dry eye are able to easily wear contact lenses; our optometrist will recommend which specific type of contact lenses will work best in your particular situation. When you are getting contacts, our optometrist will also take measurements of the curve of your cornea as well as the size of your iris to make sure that your new contacts in Jamaica Queens will fit you precisely. If your new contact lenses do not fit your eyes well, they can end up causing permanent vision damage to your cornea, so proper fit is critical.
