People with vision problems have numerous options for improving their eyesight. One of the most popular options is contact lenses. Contacts offer both vision correction and convenience, as you don't have to worry about them falling off or getting damaged when playing sports or engaging in outdoor activities. Like glasses, however, contacts require an eye exam to obtain the right prescription. If you live in the greater Boston area, you can schedule your contact lens exam and contact lens fitting at Eyes Over Copley.
About Contact Lenses
Contact lenses are just one of the many optical services offered by your eye care specialists at Eyes Over Copley. Contacts help correct problems with blurry vision to improve the quality of your eyesight. Contacts aren't "one size fits all" because people have unique vision correction needs. At Eyes Over Copley, we carry different types of contacts to provide our customers with optimal eyesight. This includes traditional soft lenses, RGP lenses, daily and extended wear contacts, disposable contacts, and hard-to-fit specialty contacts.
Before prescribing contacts, your Boston eye doctor will perform a comprehensive eye exam to check your eye health and visual clarity to determine if you have problems with your eyesight. Blurry vision can be caused by myopia, farsightedness, astigmatism, or other eye conditions. Knowing the cause of your visual impairment will help us determine what kind of contacts you need. After your eye exam, we'll schedule a contact lens exam and contact lens fitting to choose the type and size of contacts best suited for your visual needs.
What to Expect from a Contact Lens Exam
During a contact lens exam, your eye doctor will explain your options for contacts, taking into consideration your prescription and lifestyle. We'll also explain how to care for your contacts and what to expect from their use. Then we'll take measurements of the iris, pupil, and cornea of your eye to get contacts that fit properly and comfortably over your eyes. We'll also test your eyes for tear production to ensure your eyes have enough moisture to wear contacts.
Most people can wear traditional soft contacts, which are the most popular type. Others require specialty contacts due to having eye conditions that make soft lenses unsuitable for improving their eyesight. If you have dry eyes, astigmatism, presbyopia, or keratoconus, your eye doctor will guide you to specialty contacts that can meet your unique visual needs. The right contacts will ensure you're enjoying optimal eyesight.
