Come on in to see our more helpful hints, Dr. Glenn Roter, for a contact lens exam and fitting. Your contacts are a vital part of your daily life. Our staff is dedicated to making sure that you leave with the ones that are right for you, with the proper prescription and a comfortable fit. Contact lenses are not necessarily better than eyeglasses, but they do have advantages such as allowing you to keep your full range of peripheral vision- side to side- and giving you a more natural vision overall. Participating in athletics or other physical activities is easier with contacts. And of course, your appearance is not altered when you choose contact lenses.
A comprehensive eye exam is recommended for everyone, but a contact lens exam adds more detail so that our more helpful hints can ensure that your prescription will provide you with the maximum benefit and cause you no fuss, trouble, or difficulty. That is why Dr. Roter will check your eyelids, conjunctiva, and your corneas, including the curve of them. Once your exam has been completed, the next step will be up to our highly skilled optician to craft your new contacts to precision.
No matter how well your contact lenses improve your eyesight, they are worthless if you do not wear them. Obvious, right? Well, that is why the fitting is so important. Our more helpful hints knows that comfortable contact lenses mean that you will put them in your eyes and enjoy the vision correction that you are in need of. Furthermore, improperly fit contact lenses may not afford you improved eyesight to the greatest degree possible if they do not sit in your eyes properly. So your contact lenses will be tested in your eyes in various positions to achieve optimal alignment.
Whether soft or hard lenses are best for you is something that will be determined as part of your exam and fitting. This depends on personal preference as well as which type of lens is most suitable for your particular vision need. With soft lenses, choose among daily wear, extended wear, disposable, and color changing- for that sense of added style you may be craving.
