If you need prescription eyewear but you don’t want to wear eye glasses, you might want to consider contact lenses as an alternative. To get contact lenses, you’ll need to see a professional optometrist like ours at The Eye Works Optometry for a comprehensive eye exam as well as a contact lens fitting in Napa Valley.
There are certain qualifications that need to be met in order to be a candidate for contact lenses. Since contact lenses are placed and worn inside the eye, you need to have good eye health and you also need to be able to be comfortable enough to place them in and take them out of your eyes independently. You also need to be willing to properly clean and maintain them. This is important for your eye health. A professional optometrist like ours at The Eye Works Optometry will need to assess the overall health of your eyes by doing a comprehensive eye examination to determine if you’re a good candidate for contacts. If our eye doctor determines that you’re a contact lens candidate, you’ll talk about the different types of contact lens options, so you can determine what the best type would be for you based on many important factors. In order to meet your needs, the contact lenses you choose must meet certain requirements. They have to fit on the eye properly, be comfortable, provide you with clear vision and match your lifestyle and personal preference. Your eye doctor will try different types of contacts until you find the right contacts. He or she will do a contact lens fitting in Napa Valley to ensure that the contacts you get fit properly and are also comfortable and meet all the necessary criteria. There are many contact lens options available to select from such as hard contacts, soft contacts, daily wear, extended wear, disposable and color changing contact lenses.
If you’re considering contact lenses, you should consult with our eye doctor. Contact our office to schedule your contact lens fitting in Napa Valley today.
