WHY A CONTACT LENS FITTING IS BENEFICIAL
Many people are unaware that contact lenses are considered as medical devices which can correct your vision and should always be fitted by a professional. Although contact lenses are increasing in popularity, many contact lens wearers subject themselves to higher risks for complications because of not properly wearing and caring for their contacts.
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 40.9 million U.S. adults wear contact lenses, and many could be at risk for serious eye infections because of poor contact lens wear and care behaviors. Therefore, it is important to have a professional contact lens fitting with a doctor of optometry to avoid your risk of developing any of these issues!
Our optometrists and professionals can ensure the perfect fit for your contact lenses. Not all brands are created the same, and certain contact lenses can offer advantages specific to each patient. During a contact lens fitting, our eye doctor will measure your corneal curvature to ensure the best fit.
Caution: We highly advise against purchasing online without a proper contact lens fitting. Glasses prescription only provides certain parameters of your requirements and does not address the actual fit of the lenses. Contact lenses are a medical device and should only be fitted by professionals. Without a proper fitting, contact lenses can cause permanent damage to the cornea.
