If you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, you will need correction to see clearly. Many people who require correction wear glasses. If you are tired of relying on eyeglasses to see clearly, you should consider getting contacts. Contacts provide a more natural appearance than eyeglasses. Also, you won't need to worry about your vision being obstructed by an eyeglass frame or dirty eyeglass lenses. Many athletes people who work out frequently prefer contacts because they are safer and more convenient than eyeglasses.
If you are thinking about getting contacts, they can be prescribed by the eye doctors at Today's Vision Conroe. If you have an appointment for a contact lens fitting scheduled, you should know what to expect.
Determine Your Prescription
Your contact lens prescription won't be the same as your eyeglass prescription. Because your eyeglass lenses sit an inch or two away from your eyes and the contacts sit directly on the cornea, the two prescriptions will be different. Your eye doctor will also need to measure your cornea to determine the best contacts for your eyes.
Discuss Your Lifestyle
There are several types of contact lenses available. Our eye doctor can fit you with contacts that need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly and monthly. We can also fit you with extended wear contacts that can be worn for a month straight without needing to remove them. Our eye doctor will want to know a bit about your lifestyle so they can determine the type of contacts that would be the most convenient for you.
Contact Lens Teaching
Our optometrist will give you a pair of trial contacts to wear for a week or two to make sure that you can see clearly and that they are comfortable. Before you can leave the office with your trial contacts, you will need to know how to insert and remove them and properly care for your contacts. During your contact lens fitting, you will sit down with a tech who will teach you what you need to know.
Before you leave our office, you will schedule a follow-up appointment in a week or two to let our optometrist know how the contacts are working. If you are having any issues, our optometrist will make the necessary adjustments. If everything is fine, your supply will be ordered.
