Discover Crisp, Frame-Free Vision

Prescription eyeglasses are a fantastic way of correcting your visual errors while looking fabulous at the same time. However, we also understand that eyeglasses may not be the right choice for every occasion.

This is where contact lenses can help.

Through our comprehensive contact lens exam and fitting process, we can pair you with lenses suited to your needs and lifestyle. Book an appointment with See Eye Clinic to see if contact lenses are right for you.

Why Wear Contact Lenses?

Contact lenses can help bridge the gap between your vision quality and lifestyle, giving you more opportunities to enjoy clear eyesight without worrying about protecting or storing your glasses.

We may prescribe contact lenses to help correct common refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia, and astigmatism. However, we may recommend a specialty contact lens to help address concerns like keratoconus or dry eye.

If you’re interested in wearing contact lenses, the first thing you need to do is book a contact lens exam with See Eye Clinic. 

Getting Your Contacts

While most patients can wear contacts safely and comfortably, certain issues could affect your candidacy for wearing them.

We can determine your candidacy and which type of contact lens may suit your needs best during a contact lens exam and fitting. If contacts aren’t suitable for you, we may recommend alternative strategies for helping you achieve clear vision or look at various specialty contacts to see if they can serve you.

If you have any questions about our contact lens process, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Discussing Your Needs

During the first part of your contact lens exam appointment, we’ll discuss your eye health, health history, and lifestyle. This conversation will help us orient the exam to your needs and give insight into how contact lenses can support your lifestyle.

After our discussion, we’ll move forward with our eye exam. During the eye exam, we’ll update your lens prescription and look for potential issues that may affect your candidacy for wearing contact lenses. Some of these issues can include:

  • Dry eyes
  • Eye infections
  • Allergies
  • Dry, dusty environments

Once we complete the eye exam, we’ll start the fitting process. We take several eye measurements during the fitting process to help ensure your contacts fit properly and feel comfortable, like:

We may use a corneal topographer to examine your cornea and look for conditions that may affect the fitting process, like keratoconus.

After we complete your fitting, we’ll have you try on a pair of trial lenses to see how well you adjust to wearing contact lenses. If you’re happy with your trial lenses, we’ll provide you with a prescription and offer a supply of lenses for you to purchase.

How to Care For Your Contact Lenses

Proper lens care and storage are essential to keeping your eyes safe and healthy while wearing contacts. Some tips we recommend when we prescribe contacts include:

  • Changing your lenses according to your prescription (daily wear, extended wear, etc.).
  • Only using your lens solution to clean your contact lenses.
  • Storing your lenses in their case with fresh solution.
  • Washing your hands and drying them with a lint-free towel before inserting or removing your contacts.
  • Never rinsing your contact lenses in water.
  • Never using your own saliva to clean your contact lenses.
