If you are thinking about wearing contact lenses for the first time, or if your contact lens prescription has expired, visit us at Spare Pair Vision Center for a contact lens exam and fitting. At our vision center, our optometrist can provide you with a new prescription for your Middletown contact lenses.
When you want to purchase Middletown contact lenses, you will need to have a contact lens prescription. This prescription will not only state the vision correction needed, but it will also contain important information about how the contact lenses should fit your eye. If contact lenses do not fit precisely right, they can end up causing permanent damage to the cornea. For this reason, it is very important that you have the right contact lens prescription. During our contact lens exam and fitting, our eye doctor will check your visual acuity. Patients with astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness can all have their vision corrected with contact lenses. Today, even patients with dry eye are able to comfortably and safely wear contact lenses for vision correction. Our eye doctor will also check your eyes for eye diseases and disorders which include: cataracts; glaucoma; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; retinal tears; dry eyes; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. Our optometrist will then take measurements of the curvature of your cornea, and of the size of your iris to ensure proper fit. Once the exam is complete, our eye doctor will talk to you about which contact lenses will work best for you. Today there are many different types of contact lenses available including toric lenses for patients with astigmatism, and special lenses for patients who have dry eye. Our optometrist can also write a prescription for multifocal lenses which contain two different distance prescriptions in them. This can mean that you will no longer need to carry around reading glasses for near vision correction.
