Contact lenses are some of the most useful pieces of equipment that you can place easily over your eyes. Contact lenses can immediately fix your vision and can allow you to see clearly with the help of a contact lens exam. If you need specialty contact lenses, have other existing eye diseases, or simply looking for help for your vision disorder, you should visit an optometrist to see how they can help.
Through a contact lens exam and comprehensive eyecare, you can improve your vision instantly. At Rice Family Vision in Duncan, OK, we make it our mission to help our patients see clearly, improve their overall quality of life, and find the right contacts through our contact lens exam. Our optometry specialists will help answer any questions you might have about your future contact lenses.
Do I Need a Contact Lens Exam?
If you've never worn contacts before or if you need an update to your prescription, you will need to get the help of an optometrist on our team for a contact lens exam. A contact lens exam is important to determine the right prescription needed for your eyes. Not all contact lenses are the same. Specialty contact lenses, for instance, can help with diseases such as keratoconus. Keratoconus is a condition where the cornea of the eye is shaped like a cone. Specialty contact lenses can help by covering the entirety of the eye, also known as scleral lenses.
This is just one example of specialty contacts that you might need in order to see clearly. Contact lenses should also have their own unique prescription, as they shape your lens and cornea to be able to focus light properly. Through a contact lens exam an optometrist on our team will be able to determine the right prescription.
How an Optometrist Helps
An optometrist at our practice will be able to help determine the right prescription needed in order to help you see clearly. He might also recommend specialty contacts if you have pre-existing eye conditions such as dry or are new to wearing contact lenses. In addition, he will help provide follow up care to ensure your contact lenses are working like they should be.
