How Does the Contact Lenses Fitting Process Work?
Each contact lens has a different fit therefore our optometrists will chose the right lens for you. Based off of your glasses prescription you will be given a “trial” contact lens in which we will modify the fit/power of the lens. You will be asked to wear the contact lenses for 1 week and then you will be scheduled for a 1 week follow-up. This time period will allow you to determine if the lens is comfortable and whether you are seeing clearly through the lens.
At the follow up the optometrist will evaluate the contact lens on the eye and adjust the power/fit of the lens or even change the brand of the contact lens. Once the contact lens prescription is finalized you are free to order. Your contact lens prescription will be good for one year following examination.
How long can I wear my Contact Lenses?
Each brand of Contact Lens is FDA approved for a different wear schedule. Whether the lenses be approved for daily wear, weekly wear, or monthly wear it is vital that you wear your lenses according to the lens wear schedule to reduce the risk of complications and infections to the eye.
