Learn About Contact Lens Exams
During a standard, or comprehensive, eye exam, the eye doctor looks at your eyes to see how they work together and what your prescription needs are. Some specialized equipment is used to check pressure levels of the eyes, but the overall procedure for a comprehensive eye exam is fairly simple.
During an exam for contact lenses, your eye will also be measured to determine what size and type of contact lenses will work for you. Every person wears unique contact lenses because every person's eyes are uniquely shaped. Contact lenses are made to fit the curvature of your eyeballs and to provide vision correction, so they need to be custom created for every wearer. You'll also have a conversation with your eye doctor to determine what kind of contacts you want. Some people like using extended-wear contacts that are replaced every 30 days, while others prefer single-use lenses that are replaced every day.
Discover Useful Bifocal Lenses
For the last few decades, people with both near and far vision problems had only one option: bifocal glasses. Recently, however, bifocal contact lenses have become common. Bifocal contact lenses work similarly to bifocal glasses. Different parts of the lens are different thicknesses so that you can see things both near and far away. Bifocal lenses are also available in both extended-wear and single-use varieties, so ask your eye doctor which will work best for you.
