Why Do I Need a Contact Lens Exam?
During a regular eye exam, your optometrist will assess the health of your eyes, test your vision, and, if needed, provide a prescription for glasses. But, if you want to wear contacts, you’ll need a proper contact lens fitting.
Because contacts sit directly on the eyes, it’s essential that your optometrist performs additional tests to keep your eyes healthy. During a contact lens exam at Compass Eye Care, we’ll ask you questions about your lifestyle, take additional measurements, and check the health of your eyes to decide whether contacts are right for you.
Types of Contact Lenses
No matter your vision needs, we’ve got you covered with a range of contact lens options. Learn more about the types of contact lenses.
Bifocal contacts are advanced soft contacts that can correct both presbyopia and astigmatism, so you can avoid wearing glasses after age 40. Our bifocal contacts for astigmatism are comfortable and made from quality materials, so you won’t even notice they’re there.
Contacts for Dry Eyes
If you have dry eye disease your eyes may feel uncomfortable when wearing other types of contacts. We carry contact lenses that can help reduce the risk of contact lens-related dry eye symptoms.
Many contact lenses come in colors that can enhance the natural hue of your eye or completely change the color of your eyes. Try our colored lenses today and see the difference they can make for you.
The sun’s ultraviolet rays can cause a number of eye conditions. UV-inhibiting lenses can protect your eyes from these UV rays. In addition to your UV-inhibiting lenses, make sure to still wear sunglasses when outdoors.
Our hybrid lenses provide the best of both worlds: the crisp optics of a rigid lens and the comfort of a larger, soft lens. If you’re looking for a mix of benefits, hybrid lenses could be the contacts for you.
Scleral lenses are large-diameter, gas-permeable lenses specially designed to treat keratoconus, other corneal irregularities, and presbyopia.
Myopia Control Lenses
Myopia control contacts are designed to slow the progression of nearsightedness in children. If your child has myopia, you might consider myopia control contacts.
