Contact Lens Exams, Fittings, & Brands

Everyone has different visual needs, so there is no one size fits all when it comes to contact lenses. To make sure you have the right type of contact for your eyes we recommend a comprehensive eye exam, followed by a contact lens exam, before selecting a style or brand of lenses.

Improperly fitted contact lenses will not only compromise the clarity of your vision, they also pose a health and safety hazard for your eyes.

Let our expert team help you find the perfect pair of contact lenses for your eyes. Schedule your contact lens exam and fitting today.

Finding the Right Contacts For Your Eyes

Finding the right contact lenses to suit your needs is a multi-step process.

Contact Lens Exam

Before we can help you select the right brand and style of contact lenses, we need to examine your eyes. During your exam, we will review your medical and ocular history and ensure it is up to date, as well as assess your eyes for any conditions that may prevent you from wearing contact lenses. . We will also determine your contact lens prescription, which is different from your eyeglass prescription.

Once we have determined that your eyes are suitable for contact lenses, we will take accurate measurements of your eyes. These measurements are important because we use them to ensure that the contact lenses we recommend are best suited to your ocular parameters. Contact lenses are available in a variety of shapes, styles, and sizes. Finding the right match is important so that we can ensure your vision is clear and stable, and your eyes are comfortable.

To help us get accurate corneal measurements, we use corneal topography. This extremely precise instrument measures the shape and thickness of your corneas and allow us to detect any irregularities that may affect which type of contact lenses you require.

Once we have selected the right style and brand of contact lenses for your visual needs, we will send you home with a trial pair. This will allow you to determine if the chosen lenses are clear, comfortable, and are able to meet your visual needs.

Once you have had a chance to test out the trial pair, we will meet with you again to ensure you are satisfied with the brand and style we recommended, and make sure your eyes are adapting well to the lenses. If you are satisfied, we will provide you with a copy of your contact lens prescription and order a supply of contact lenses for you. If your trial lenses are uncomfortable, are not offering you clear vision, or are not working as well as you expected, we will adjust accordingly by trying other powers, brands, or styles of lenses until you are satisfied.

Contact Lens Care

It is essential to properly care for your contact lenses. Depending on what type of contact lenses you are prescribed, your care instructions may differ, but all contact lens wearers should wash their hands thoroughly before inserting or removing their contact lenses to avoid corneal infections. You should only clean your contact lenses with an approved contact lens solution, and you should always use fresh solution when storing your contact lenses. Replace your contact lens case every 3 months, or more frequently, depending on your cleaning system.

Specialty Contact Lenses

To ensure that we are able to meet your visual needs OPMT Vision Centers offer a wide variety of specialty contact lenses. These include:

Scleral lenses

Scleral lenses are made using specialized gas-permeable materials and are designed to cover the entire cornea as well as the white of your eye (the sclera). These lenses are typically prescribed to patients with irregular corneas, including those with conditions such as keratoconus, or astigmatism. Scleral lenses can also be used by patients who suffer from severe dry eye disease.

Orthokeratology (ortho-k) lenses are specialized gas-permeable contact lenses designed for overnight wear only. While you sleep these lenses gently reshape your cornea (the front surface of your eye), allowing you to see clearly the following day without the use of eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Toric lenses are specifically designed to correct astigmatism. Most toric lenses prescribed today are made from soft highly breathable silicone hydrogel. However, rigid gas-permeable lenses may also be used to correct astigmatism and can be spherical or toric.

Like multifocal eyeglasses, multifocal contact lenses offer several different levels of visual correction on one lens. They are typically used to treat presbyopia, a condition that affects our near vision as we age.

Aspheric multifocal lenses provide enhanced visual quality by providing an increased depth of focus. They are structured so that the center of the lens provides distance vision and the outer portion of the lens provides near vision.

Hybrid contact lenses consist of a rigid, gas-permeable central section, paired with a soft peripheral zone made of silicone hydrogel material. This design pairs the visual clarity of rigid, gas-permeable lenses with the comfort of soft lenses.
