Finding the Right Contact Lenses for You
The first step to finding the right contact lenses is getting the right fit. Your eyes are unique, from their shape to your particular vision needs. Getting professionally fit contact lenses ensures comfort, effectiveness, and proper function to suit your lifestyle and eye care goals.
Schedule an exam and let our team help you find the right contact lenses.
What to Expect During a Contact Lens Fitting
During a contact lens fitting at Burlington Optometry, your doctor will conduct multiple tests to ensure you get the right prescription and lenses to suit your vision needs. They’ll take detailed measurements, including:
- Determining the size and curvature of your eye
- Checking the size of your pupil and iris
- Evaluating your tear film to ensure proper lubrication
- Training in safe contact lens insertion and removal techniques
Book an appointment for a contact lens to ensure you get the the ideal fit.
Getting the Right Fit with Specialty Lenses
You may require specialty lenses to account for your eye shape and vision needs. We carry lenses to suit your specific needs to ensure comfort and reliability.
Rigid Gas Permeable Lenses
Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) lenses are made of hard plastic that allows oxygen to pass through the lens surface. These types of lenses hold their shape when you blink and are usually more durable than soft lenses. RGP lenses may be more comfortable for people who experience dry eyes.
Scleral lenses are larger than typical contact lenses because they sit on your sclera (the white part of your eye) as opposed to your cornea (the clear outer layer of your eye). Scleral lenses are used for people who have irregularly shaped corneas and conditions like keratoconus.
Multifocal contact lenses contain multiple prescriptions in one lens. They can be used to treat several eye conditions at the same time. Multifocal lenses are a good option for people with presbyopia and other conditions that affect vision at varying distances.
Astigmatism is an eye condition that causes irregularly shaped corneas. The irregular shape causes a refractive error and can lead to blurry vision and trouble seeing up close. Astigmatism lenses (also called toric lenses) help correct that error and ensure clear eyesight.
