Our Optometrist’s Answer Your Eyecare Questions:
Am I able to wear contact lenses?
Most patients are able to wear contact lenses as long as they are evaluated and fit properly by one of our doctors. Contacts are a medical device and a proper fit and evaluation is critical to ensure your eye health is not affected by contact lens wear.
A doctor of optometry is the best source for this type of evaluation. Contacts can now correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and can even come in a bifocal/multifocal prescription!
For success with contact lenses the patient needs to be motivated to wear contacts. At our office, we offer an extensive training and fitting program with contact lenses to ensure the patient is given all the tools needed to succeed!
