If you’ve made the decision to wear contact lenses, we are excited for you because today’s contacts are more comfortable and the level of vision correction they offer is unprecedented. As with anything, being properly prepared is key to having the best experience. And that is why at the office of Rana Iman, OD, we do contact lens exams and fittings.
If you’re thinking that a contact lens exam is the same as a standard eye exam, let us tell you more about it. The point is to check those parts of your eyes that touch the contacts when you wear them. Specifically, we refer to your corneas, conjunctiva, and eyelids. The best case scenario is that there are no issues found as part of the exam, and you’ll be ready to move on to our contact lens fitting in Burke. If the exam reveals a problem with your eyes that might interfere with your ability to wear lenses, options will be discussed, which typically include either treatment or switching to eyeglasses as a viable alternative. Our contact lens fitting in Burke is also important. There are different types of contacts, among which are soft and gas-permeable varieties. You will feel much more confident once you know that the lenses you’ve chosen are going to feel good when you put them in. Furthermore, ideal centering provides you with the most you can get out of the prescription as written by our eye doctor.
Whether you favor daily wear, extended wear, disposable, color-changing, or any of the other contact lenses we offer, you will most certainly find that our contact lens exam and our contact lens fitting in Burke are simple and wise strategies for giving you a positive attitude about them. Please reach out to our office to schedule an appointment.
