Contact Lens Evaluation
Before prescribing contact lenses, Greer eye doctor Dr. Johnson will conduct a full eye exam to determine what level of correction is required. The doctor will measure how well the eyes focus. This determines nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. Tools such as a phoropter and other automated instruments are used to take measurements and determine the level of contact lens assistance required. Also, we can figure out if you would need hard to fit contacts or any other special assistance.
Choosing Contact Lenses or Glasses
While many people do well with contact lenses, certain conditions make glasses a better corrective solution. If you do choose lenses, there are many variations today. Soft or rigid contact lenses may work better for some patients than others. Depending on what type of lens is chosen, they may be changed daily, weekly or monthly. There are specialized contact lenses, such as multifocal contact lenses for patients that have specific needs.
There are many reasons why lenses are used. Some patients choose contact lenses for cosmetic reasons. Custom lenses can be created to camouflage certain eye colors or irregularities. In addition, it is possible to create a natural appearance using a contact lens. For some patients, lenses can correct vision AND make cosmetic changes. Your eye doctor in Greer, Dr. Johnson, can help you determine if cosmetic lenses would be a smart choice for your lifestyle.
As you can see, there are many things to think about when considering contact lenses. The first step is to make an appointment for a contact lens exam and evaluation. We encourage you to contact us at Blue Ridge Vision in Greer for more information.
