Contact Lens Assessment
Are you considering switching to contact lenses? We love glasses for being a stylish accessory but we can’t deny that contact lenses bring ease and convenience to everyday life. You can learn more about contact lenses here.
Your eyes and contact lenses
Thanks to advances in technology, there are contact lenses that cater to a variety of lifestyle, prescription, and visual needs. This means that even if you’ve had a bad experience with contacts in the past or been told they aren’t suitable for you, our contact lens specialists may be able to help you find a brand or type that works for your eyes.
Why wear contact lenses?
Contact lenses offer several benefits to the wearer including:
- an unobstructed field of vision
- enhanced sports performance
- they don’t fog up like glasses do
- boosted self-esteem.
Types of contact lenses
We offer a range of contact lenses from major brands like Acuvue, Cooper Vision, Bausch and Lomb, and we also offer rigid gas permeable lenses (hard contacts).
At our Fort Wayne branch, you can expect more brands like Alcon – plus even custom-made contacts.
Some popular types of contact lenses include:
- daily disposables
- 2-weekly or monthly lenses
- toric lenses
- multifocal or varifocal lenses
- hard, gas-permeable lenses.
During your contact lens fitting
A contact lens fitting at our Fort Wayne location is approximately 30 minutes long. If we need to dilate your eyes, your fitting will last approximately 45 mins. We’ll begin by discussing your lifestyle and visual needs to determine which contact lenses are best for you. A technician will then teach you how to safely insert and remove the contacts. Once you’re comfortable, you can take them home and test them out for 1-2 weeks. If you’re happy with your contacts, we’ll finalize the prescription and you can order a supply. Please note that our contact lens fit is charged separately from the comprehensive eye exam.
At our Warsaw location, your contact lens fitting will take between 10-20 minutes. We’ll complete your glasses examination and then discuss contact lens options with you. You can decide on the type of contacts you like based on what would best fit your visual needs and lifestyle.
