Are Contact Lenses are Right for Me?
If you think aren't a candidate for contact lenses, recent advances in technology assure that virtually anyone can now wear them. Today, patients who have been diagnosed with presbyopia can wear one of the new types of bifocal contact lenses that include soft, rigid or hybrid versions. These contacts correct astigmatism. They can also opt for custom contacts to correct the most difficult vision problems.
Each person's eyes have unique characteristics. The vision specialists at La Bleu Optique, New York's luxury eyewear boutique assists you in making the best decision about which contact lenses are the best choice specifically for you. When present for your contact lens exam in New York, NY, we consider such factors such as your age, your particular situation, your needs, and your budget.
The Difference between a Regular Eye Exam and an Exam for Contact Lenses
When one receives an eyeglass prescription, the doctor takes precise measurements intended for lenses positioned somewhat away from the eyes. During a contact lens examination, the doctor measures specifically for lenses that sit directly on the eye's surface. This entails the use of state-of-the-art optical equipment, which can render more precise measurements. Improper contact lens fittings or an incorrect prescription can damage the health of the eyes.
However, if you do properly get fitted for contact lenses, here are some of the benefits of wearing contact lenses:
- Cosmetic advantages
- Reflection-free vision
- Clearer vision
- No rubbing or slipping
