Contact Lens Fittings
Your Contact Lens Prescription
We get it, glasses aren’t for everyone. Everyone’s lifestyle is different, so if you’re in the market to see what life is like without glasses, or for old contact lens wearers looking to see new options available, we’re here to help. Contact lens prescriptions are very different than eyeglass prescriptions, which is why it is important to have a contact lens exam conducted. Based on the results of your examination, Dr. Ni will prescribe a contact lens prescription that is right for your eyes and will meet the demands of your day-to-day life. A wide variety of contact lenses are available to correct :
- Myopia or hyperopia – The most common or basic contact lens available. These contacts are used to correct your distance vision.
- Astigmatism – Commonly known as a Toric lens, these lenses correct astigmatism by accommodating for one’s corneal curvature.
- Presbyopia – Also known as a Multifocal contact lenses, these lenses help those who have difficulty seeing both distance and near.
Upon completion of the contact lens fitting, Dr. Ni will provide you with a trial pair of contact lenses for you to wear to find those that sit most comfortably on your eye and provide the clearest, most enjoyable vision experience.
For new contact lens wearers, Dr. Ni will ensure that you learn how to insert and remove your contact lenses, and if applicable, the proper way to store them. It is important to follow her instructions, particularly on the contact lens wear schedule, to ensure you enjoy comfortable, clear vision every day in your contact lenses, and to avoid developing an eye infection.
Contact Lens Follow-up Exam
Depending on your history with the contact lens prescribed to you, you may be asked to come back for a follow-up exam so that Dr. Ni can check how the contact lens fits on your eye, whether you are comfortable in your contact lenses, and if your vision is clear.
