Contact Lens Fittings: What You Can Expect

contact lensesWhen you first start to wear contact lenses, it can feel like you have something that is constantly in your eyes. And even worse, getting used to your new prescription can make you feel light-headed, nauseous, or just have a headache. Sometimes, however, when patients receive their new contact lenses, they feel these symptoms for longer than normal simply because they were fitted correctly. Luckily, here at Wilkinson Eye Center, we like to guarantee that all of our patients leave the office feeling comfortable and confident in their new glasses. Read on to learn more about what you can expect from your contact lens fitting from Wilkinson Eye Center.

The Right Prescription
Although all of our optometrists at Wilkinson Eye Center have the expertise needed to fit you with the right contact lenses, sometimes prescriptions end out either not being strong enough or too strong. Before you take your contact lenses home, we like you to try them on in-office in order to make sure that they are actually helping your vision and not harming it.

Pick and Choose
One of the main purposes of a contact lens fitting is to fit you not only with the correct prescription but also with the right type of contact lens as well. Depending on your lifestyle and how sensitive your eyes are, you may want to use daily contact lenses, or you may even just stick with disposables. Although not as common anymore, hard contact lenses are available to patients who request them.

Place Them In and Take Them Out
Another thing that you will do during your contact lens fitting is to make sure that you know how to both put in your contact lenses and take them out— that way when you go home, you aren’t struggling with them.

Wearing the right contact lenses will help drastically change the way in which you see the world. If you would like to learn more about contact lenses or contact lens fittings, contact Wilkinson Eye Center today!
