Whether your glasses get in the way of your active lifestyle or you want a new look, contact lenses might be for you. With the latest in contact lens technology, patients have more options than ever. Before you can pop a new pair in, you will need to schedule a contact lens fitting with an optometrist.
During a contact lens fitting, our optometrist first assesses the health of the patient’s eyes to ensure he or she is a good candidate for contact lenses, as certain eye conditions can make contact lens wear unsafe or uncomfortable.
When the patient is deemed a candidate for contacts, our optometrist will then perform a visual acuity test. This ensures your new contact lenses are ordered with an up-to-date corrective lens prescription. The optometrist will also take measurements of the patient’s eyes (recording the corneal curvature, pupil size and iris size) to determine the right type, size and fit of contact lenses.
Our optometrist will also discuss preferences for contact lens wear with the patient. This might include asking questions such as:
If you have presbyopia or an astigmatism, you may have had difficulty finding contact lenses which fit comfortably and also adequately correct your visual acuity. With multifocal contacts and hard (rigid gas permeable) lenses, we have plenty of options available for individuals in need of “hard to fit” contact lenses. Our optometrist will work with you to determine the best contact lens choice for you – depending on your visual acuity needs, activities and personal preferences.
If you’re ready for a new look and want to retire your spectacles for a set of contact lenses or simply would like to have an option other than glasses, we encourage you to schedule an appointment for a contact lens fitting at Innovision Family Eyecare in Katy, TX. Patients can schedule a contact lens fitting along with a comprehensive eye exam or as its own appointment.
We offer patients an array of contact lens options, including hard to fit contacts and daily wear choices. Our optometrist, Dr. Sanwari, looks forward to helping you find a convenient, comfortable way to see clearly and confidently.
