Contact lenses are unique for every person, and it takes a trained optometrist to be able to determine which ones are right for each person. When it comes to choosing the best contact lenses, there's no better way to prepare than to get a contact lens exam done. A contact lens exam can help an optometrist on our optometry team provide the best contact lenses for a patient, as well as determine the prescription for a person, or if they need any other treatment for other eye diseases and vision disorders.
At Manufacturer Direct Eyewear in Deerfield Beach, FL, we're here to help our clients find the best contact lenses to fit their lifestyle with the help from our optometry staff! If you want to find the right contact lenses to improve your vision, get a full picture on your eye health, and get started on your road to better vision, read on below to find out more about how our contact lens exam can help.
Do I Need a Contact Lens Exam?
Anyone that wants to wear contact lenses should get a contact lens exam beforehand. A contact lens exam will help determine the right prescription needed for your vision disorder. Different prescriptions are needed for different vision disorders, such as:
- Astigmatism, which is a misshapen cornea or lens
- Myopia, also known as nearsightedness
- Presbyopia, also known as farsightedness
These are all conditions that can be corrected with the help of contact lenses. In addition, people with certain eye diseases might not be suitable to wear contact lenses without an exam first.
How Can an Optometrist Help with Contact Lenses?
If you are not a good candidate for regular contact lenses, an eye doctor on our optometry team will help determine other suitable replacements. For instance, there are specialty contact lenses that can fit your needs if you have other conditions, such as keratoconus or dry eyes.
Through their contact lens exam, an optometrist on our optometry team can determine which specialty contact lenses are right for you, or if you'd be better suited for eyeglasses. For smaller children or people that cannot handle the routine maintenance of contact lenses, eyeglasses might be a better choice. An eye doctor on our optometry team can make that determination after an eye exam.
Finally, if you want to use colored contact lenses, there are certain choices an optometrist at our practice can help you choose from.
