Have you been thinking about getting contact lenses for the first time? Or, is your contact lens prescription soon expiring and you need to get a new one before you can purchase the contact lenses that you need? In either event you will want to make an appointment to come see our optometrist at our vision practice, Oneway Eyeglasses. If you are thinking about getting contact lenses in City View you will be able to get a new and accurate contact lens prescription at our vision practice.
During our contact lens exam and fitting, you will have many different tests performed on your eyes. They will be thoroughly screened to make sure that you are not developing any eye diseases or disorders, or have any vision conditions which will make it unwise or unsafe for you to wear contacts. Initially, your eyes will be tested for the type of refractive error that you have. If it is determined that you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, our optometrist will be able to provide you with a prescription for contact lenses. Today, even patients with astigmatism or dry eye are able to comfortably and accurately have their vision corrected the contact lenses. When you come to our practice to get contact lenses in City View , your eyes will also be screened for many different eye diseases and disorders including: glaucoma; cataracts; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; dry eyes; retinal tears; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina.
Finally, your eyes will be measured for the curve of the cornea, and the size of the iris. It is very important that contact lenses picture eyes correctly. If contact lenses do not fit eyes correctly, they can actually damage the cornea. This is why you never want to borrow contact lenses from a friend, even if you think your contact lens prescriptions may be similar. Our optometrist will finally let you know which type of contact lens will work best for you, and write a prescription for the exact product that you need. At our practice, our expert optometrists are Dr. Cynthia Yeager and Dr. Karen Mak. For an appointment to see one of our optometrists for prescription for contact lenses in City View, contact us today.
