Vision impairment is not at all uncommon. Many people live with some form of it, whether it happens to be nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. All of these conditions exhibit symptoms of blurry vision which need to be rectified with the use of vision correction. Traditionally, glasses are used to help provide such patients with perfect vision, but contact lenses are another viable option. But, contact lenses are not right for everyone, requires a different prescription strength than glasses, and there are plenty of types and brands to choose from. Our team here at Somerset Hills Eye Care Center can help you figure this out if you are interested in contact lenses in Bernardsville.
When it comes to trying contact lenses, it is not as simple as ordering just any pair of contacts in your normal eyeglass prescription. In order to wear contacts correctly, you must see an eye doctor or an optician who can perform the necessary tests and exams. Here at Somerset Hills Eye Care Center, we can not only provide you with contact lenses in Bernardsville but we can also provide you with the vision exam and contact lens fitting that you need. First, your eyes will be examined alongside your eye health history. If you have any previous eye conditions, current eye infections or other complications, you may not be able to wear contacts safely and comfortably. A thorough exam can also help determine if you will be able to wear contacts as well. Once this is completed, you will be given a vision test that will determine what prescription strength your contact lenses would need to be. A contact lens prescription will require a different prescription than a pair of glasses because they rest directly over your eyes.
Once all of this is done, we can provide you with a contact lens fitting here at Somerset Hills Eye Care Center. This will help you figure out which brand and type of contacts you like best. Additionally, this fitting will teach you how to properly care for your contacts between uses while also learning how to insert and remove them safely.
