Contact lenses provide a wide range of benefits for people with vision disorders. Contact lenses make it possible to correct vision without the need for eyeglasses and are incredibly comfortable to wear. Unfortunately, not all contact lenses are made the same. Some people might need specialty contact lenses or might not be able to wear contact lenses at all. Only a trained optometrist will be able to determine if you need contact lenses or another treatment for your eye disorder. At Drizik Eye Care in Medford, MA, we can help determine the best eye care treatment through a comprehensive contact lens exam.
What are Contact Lenses?
Contact lenses are small, clear lenses that fit directly over the eye. Contact lenses can be worn by both children and adults. Contacts can correct vision disorders caused by refractive errors like astigmatism, myopia, hyperopia, and more. Contact lenses can fit over the eye, but people with physical deformities of the eye might not be able to wear contact lenses. Only an optometrist can determine if contact lenses are the proper treatment for your vision disorder or if you need additional eye care such as eye surgery or additional medications. Contact lenses come in various forms, shapes, and sizes, and we will help you find the type that works best for you.
How Our Contact Lens Exam Can Help
A contact lens exam can help determine the type of contact lenses you need, including the prescription and the proper size. A contact lens exam can also determine if you need specialty contact lenses such as scleral lenses. These types of lenses are useful for people with keratoconus, which is a physical deformity of the eye. After we determine the type of contact lenses that are best for you, we will instruct you in inserting and removing your contact lenses. You will be sent home with a trial pair and will return in a week to assess how the lenses worked for you.
