Establishing a Good Contact Lens Fit
Fitting lenses to your lifestyle
We will determine the best fitting lens based on your lifestyle needs and the shape and health of your eye. In most cases, you’ll have the opportunity to try lenses on the same day as your exam. You can even go home with a few samples before making a final decision.
Follow up fittings
We follow up the initial fitting and then make any necessary changes in fit or materials to get you the best possible fit. We teach all our patients proper contact lens care and also possible consequences if proper care is not taken. Then we continue with long-term follow-up to monitor the condition of the lenses and to ensure that proper hygiene is being maintained.
Q&A with Dr. Steinhauer
What are the benefits of dailies (daily contact lenses)?
-Daily contacts are very convenient where you are able to insert the contact directly from the package and throw away when done. There are great for travel and part-time contact lens wearers.
Daily lenses are becoming very popular with daily wear uses too who suffer from dry eye because the materials are so thin. These lenses are the thinnest materials we have to choose from which helps with making the lenses very comfortable.
Who might benefit from multifocal contact lenses? How do these lens work?
-Multifocal contacts are great for someone who wants to minimize reading glasses. Multifocal contacts have greatly improved over the years, where there are monthly replacement lenses to daily replacement options. Newer multifocal lenses even are able to correct astigmatism prescriptions.
The lenses work by having different zones built into the contact where you see better for distance and near. The great thing about multifocal contacts is that unlike progressive bifocal glasses, you don’t have to tilt your head up to read.
