In order to get the best fit and vision correction, the optometrists at InFocus Vision require anyone who wants to get contact lenses to undergo a special examination. This exam not only tests your vision but also measures your eye surface to determine the size and type of contact that’s best for you.
Additionally, your optometrist may also do a tear film evaluation to make sure your eyes produce enough tears so you can comfortably wear contact lenses.
Before prescribing your contact lenses, you and your optometrist will determine the type of contact lens that best suits you based on your eye health, vision, and lifestyle.
Daily wear contact lenses must be removed before you go to bed.
Extended wear lenses can be left in for extended periods of time, even while you’re sleeping. These types of lenses can generally be worn for up to seven days before you need to take them out.
Disposable lenses are worn for a specified period of time and then thrown away. You can get lenses that are designed to be discarded after one use or after they’ve been worn for a month.
The optometrists at InFocus Vision know that contact lenses can be a difficult transition for some people. To help ease you into your contact lenses, your optometrist first provides you with a trial pair of lenses and then has you come back to the office in a week to see how you’re adjusting. Your optometrist will work closely with you to make sure you’re comfortable and your vision is clear before you get your prescription.
Multifocal lenses are special contact lenses that help improve vision for people with presbyopia, which is a vision issue that usually develops in your 40s and makes it harder for you to focus on objects that are near.
Instead of getting a pair of reading glasses, you may prefer multifocal lenses, especially if you lead an active lifestyle that makes wearing glasses difficult.
