Why do I Need a Contact Lens Fitting – Trillium Eyecare

April 14th, 2018

Contact lenses are classified as a medical device by the FDA and thus are regulated differently than glasses. All medical devices provide benefits while posing certain risks, these risks are minimized if your optometrist dispenses your contact lenses based on your contact lens prescription.

Improperly fitting contact lenses may cause blurred vision, eye strain, eye pain, headaches or redness and swelling of the eye that can range from mild to severe.

The most serious complications include infection and corneal ulcer, which can develop quickly and can lead to irreversible vision loss if not treated appropriately.
