Contact Lens Fitting & Consultation
When you schedule an eye examination at Eastlake, please specify if you’d also like a contact lens fitting. You can combine your contact lens consultation with the primary eye examination or schedule the two appointments separately.
During your contact lens fitting and consultation, your eye doctor will administer a range of specialized tests to provide an accurate prescription. After determining the contact lens prescription, the eye doctor will discuss your existing vision problems, lifestyle, and goals to recommend the ideal type of contact lenses for your specific needs.
Your Contact Lenses Options
Contact lenses are used to correct refractive errors, i.e., vision problems that arise when your eyes don’t bend light correctly, resulting in nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia (loss of near vision with age). Depending on your specific condition, you can choose between various types of contact lenses, including soft, rigid, toric, multifocal, and color lenses.
Soft Contact Lenses
Soft contact lenses are suitable for patients with myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (farsightedness). Silicone hydrogel is currently the most popular and comfortable material for soft contact lenses. You can choose disposable soft contact lenses that last for 24 hours or extended soft contact lenses that last up to 30 days.
Rigid Contact Lenses
Rigid contact lenses are suitable for patients with myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism (vision problems due to incorrect cornea shape). Rigid contact lenses provide crisper vision and last longer than soft contact lenses, but they also cause mild discomfort for the first few days or weeks.
Toric Contact Lenses
Toric contact lenses are specifically designed to treat astigmatism, i.e., blurry vision caused due to an unusual cornea shape. Toric contact lenses are also available in two types — soft toric lenses or rigid toric lenses. They share the same differences highlighted earlier.
Multifocal Contact Lenses
Multifocal contact lenses are suitable for those with multiple prescriptions for those suffering from nearsightedness and farsightedness. They contain prescriptions for objects viewed from close, intermediate, and far distances.
Color Contact Lenses
Color contact lenses are cosmetic lenses that modify your eye color, suitable for those who want to change the perceived color of their eyes. You can get color contact lenses in soft or rigid styles.
