Whether you want to wear contact lenses daily or you simply want them to complement your daily eyewear, you will need to undergo an eye exam to determine the type of contact lenses that are right for you. The best way to make sure that you are wearing safe and effective lenses is to get a prescription for lenses from your optometrist. At World of Vision, we have shared the benefits of contact lenses with residents of Vero Beach for many years. Our optician can help you determine if contacts are a good addition to your eyeglasses prescription. Read on to learn more about the benefits of contact lenses and how we will help you select the right type.
Replace Your Contact Lens Prescription
If you already have contact lenses and eyeglasses but need to renew your prescription, our eye doctor will help you get another prescription. Even if you already wear contact lenses, you need to see a professional to ensure that your lenses still fit your eye. Our eye doctor will ask you about any discomfort you have experienced while wearing your contact lenses and modify your prescription accordingly.
Get Contact Lenses for the First Time
Your first contact lens appointment is similar to a regular eye exam. The main difference is that you will try on a pair of contact lenses and be instructed in caring for them. You may also discuss your habits with our eye doctor to make sure that contacts are the right option for you. Your first contact lens appointment may be a brief add-on to your regular eye health appointment. You will have your eyes assessed for overall health and function. The contact lens portion of the exam will require some additional measurements and tests to ensure that you can safely wear the lenses.
Make Sure Your Contact Lenses Fit
After you leave the eye doctor with your first set of contacts, you will be able to wear them at home for some length of time. You'll return to the eye doctor for another test to see how well the lenses fit and how well the prescription suits your eyes.
