If you are new to wearing contact lenses you will need to get a complete contact lens exam and fitting. During this exam your eye health will be examined and measurements of your eye will be taken. After the exam is completed our dentist will be able to provide you with a prescription for contact lenses in Fairview NJ.
However, at this point there will be some discussion as to which are the best types of contact lenses for you. Today there are many different types of contact lenses. Our optometrist at Sunrise Optical, Dr. David Iosebashvili, will be able to advise you as to which specific brand of contact lenses you should wear. He will also advise you as to what specific type of contact you should wear. Different manufacturers make different types of contacts with some offering specific benefits. However, there are also questions he will ask you regarding your preference for contact lenses in Fairview NJ. Our optometrist may give you the option of wearing hard lenses or soft lenses. Today most patients do wear soft lenses. However, there are rare instances these days when hard lenses still provide the patient with crisper vision. On the downside, hard lenses can be very difficult to get used to, and for some patients are even difficult to wear. However, even patients with astigmatism can now get soft lenses.
When it comes to ordering your contact lenses in Fairview NJ you will learn that there are also different categories of soft lenses. There are daily where lenses which are worn during the day and are removed at night for cleaning. There are also extended wear lenses which can be slept in and worn for many days in a row. Finally there are disposable lenses which are worn once and then thrown away. Some patients find that these provide the most comfortable wearing experience. We are also able to offer color-changing lenses. These are contact lenses that make it appear as though the color of your iris has changed. They can be purchased either with or without vision correction, but you will still need a prescription in either case. This is because contact lens prescriptions also contain important information about how the lens is to fit your eye. If the lens is improperly fitted to your eyes, it could cause damage to your cornea. For an appointment to see our eye doctor to get a contact lens prescription, contact us today.
