The benefits of wearing contact lenses depend on your situation and goals. Contact lens do not require cleaning multiple times per day like glasses and many contact lens wearers notice a positive impact on their appearance.
When you visit our optometrist in Tupelo MS for a contact lens fitting, we will discuss your needs and goals. We will ask you questions about your lifestyle to ensure that we provide the correct type of lenses. We will review your visual health and the potential changes to expect when wearing contact lenses. After clarifying your needs, we will take measurements to check the size of your eyes and test your visual health.
The types of lenses we recommend depend on your vision. We may suggest specialized lenses if you have a specific vision concern. For example, if you have astigmatism in one eye, then we may suggest specialized toric lenses to address the situation. We also recommend specialized lenses for bi-focal vision concerns.
Hard to fit lenses differ from traditional lenses since they work when you have unusual complications with your vision. In our clinic, we help to find the right lenses based on your eyes and goals.
Contact lenses allow you to correct your vision without wearing the traditional glasses. They are a good choice when you do not want to wear glasses for any reason. To learn more about the contact lens exams in our clinic or for an appointment, call (662) 844-3436 today.
