exam and fitting while if you are coming in for eyeglasses or regular eye exam, you will want to have a comprehensive eye exam.
Both of these exams contain some similarities. During both of these exams our patients’ eyes are screened for a wide range of diseases and disorders. And, during both exams, patients will have their visual acuity determined to see if they have any astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness. However, when a patient is getting contact lenses Chico, additional things need to be done. When patients wear contact lenses they need to have measurements taken of the curvature of their cornea and the size of their iris. If contact lenses do not fit you perfectly, they could end up causing serious damage to your cornea due to constant irritation by ill-fitting lenses. In addition, our eye doctor will need to determine which type of contact lenses will work best for you. Today there are many different types of contact lenses which can correct many different vision problems. Even our patients with astigmatism or dry eye, are happy to learn that they can now accurately, comfortably, and safely, have their vision corrected with contact lenses. Our optometrist will also want to talk to you about the different lens options available to you, and determine which will work best with your lifestyle. Soft lenses are now worn by most patients because they are extremely comfortable and easy to get used to. They come in several different styles including daily wear lenses, disposable lenses, extended wear lenses, and color-changing lenses.
