A contact lens exam is exactly like a typical eye exam, except with the added details that are necessary to ensure that you are prepared to wear contacts comfortably and effectively, without any obvious problems. At Spare Pair Vision Center, we don’t rush you in and out. And we view our job as more than just being the place for you to purchase contact lenses. We are your partner when it comes to achieving outstanding vision and doing so with ease and simplicity.
There are obvious differences between the type of vision correction afforded by contacts versus what you get with eyeglasses. For one thing, the type of vision is more natural, because the contact touches your eye and seems almost an extension of it. This is a plus, of course, as it also gives you unhindered peripheral (side-to-side) vision. However, it is also true that there are parts of your eye that the lens will be rubbing up against. They are the cornea, conjunctiva, and eyelid. Our Tinton Falls optometry will check those parts during a contact lens exam, and take note of any concerns that may pose an obstacle to your comfort with contacts. When our eye doctor writes a prescription to address your nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or combination of those refractive difficulties, the job our optician is to translate that prescription into contact lenses that will give you sharp, clear vision. And just as our Tinton Falls optometry makes certain that you are in the best possible position to benefit from contact lenses, we also want you to get the most out of them in terms of vision improvement. This means ideal centering of the lenses in your eyes.
Call our Tinton Falls optometry and arrange an appointment to come in for a contact lens exam. Because the only thing better than seeing as well as you can, is doing so problem-free.
