At First Eye Care, contact lens fitting is one of the many comprehensive eye and vision care services offered by our Hurst eye doctor. If you've been thinking about switching to contact lenses or are experiencing discomfort with your current contact lenses, there's a good chance that you could benefit from a personalized contact lens fitting session with our eye care team.
The Importance of Contact Lens Fitting
Specifically, contact lens fitting refers to a customized level of care that allows us to precisely fit contacts to your eyes. After all, no two eye sizes or shapes are exactly the same; your eyes are about as unique as your own fingerprints. With that in mind, it only makes sense that some people will experience discomfort with "one-size-fits-all" contacts that are not custom-fitted to their eyes.
With contact lens fitting, we can take detailed measurements of all aspects of your eyes to ensure that the custom contact lenses you end up with are going to fit exactly as they should. This results in a more comfortable experience for you, a reduced risk of complications (such as eye infection), and better vision correction overall!
What to Expect From Your Appointment
If you're thinking about scheduling a contact lens fitting appointment, you might be wondering what to expect. We'll begin with an assessment of your eye and vision health to make sure you're a good candidate for contacts. From there, we can take special measurements to essentially create a topographical map of each eye that allows us to then order a pair of custom-fitted contact lenses.
During your appointment, we'll also take some time to sit down with you and make sure you feel comfortable wearing and caring for contact lenses. From showing you how to insert and remove lenses to making sure you know how to properly clean and care for your new lenses, our goal is to instill as much confidence in you as we can while also answering any questions you may have.
