Are you considering using contact lenses for your daily vision correction? Contact lenses are an excellent option for many patients for several reasons. Contact lenses do not obstruct your vision in any way, they are easy to maintain, they are easily replaced, they do not cover up or hide your face, and there are a variety of types and brands for you to choose from. Our New Rochelle optometrist helps patients with their contact lenses here at Optical Visit all the time, and would love to do the same for you.
The first step to getting contact lenses is to visit our New Rochelle optometrist for a comprehensive eye exam and contact lens fitting. During the exam portion of your visit, we will carefully administer a series of tests in order to evaluate your eye health and to determine an accurate optical prescription for your lenses. Then, prior to the contact lens fitting, our New Rochelle optometrist will ask you some questions to get a better idea of which lenses are best suited for you. It is important to consider your lifestyle, hygienic habits, and other similar aspects about yourself when coming to a decision about the type of contact lens you would like to use. For example: do you think you may forget to store and clean your lenses each night? If so, you may want to consider using disposable lenses that you change each day. Do you think you may want to change your eye color? Then you can discuss color-changing lenses with our New Rochelle optometrist.
Medical considerations also need to be made when choosing contact lenses, such as if soft contact lenses or gas permeable lenses are more ideal for your needs, and the experts at Optical Visit can help you with that. When it comes down to the actual contact lens fitting, our New Rochelle optometrist will need to take several measurements, including your corneal curvature and your pupil and iris size, in order to provide you with lenses that are comfortably and accurately fitted to your eyes. We may suggest using trial lenses before ordering a full package of lenses to make sure that you are satisfied with your new lenses throughout your daily life.
