Go Glasses-Free

Contact lenses can provide a great alternative to glasses. Maybe you’re an avid outdoor adventurer and are tired of glasses fogging up or getting splashed if it’s rainy. Maybe you just want a glasses-free look some days. Or maybe, you habitually misplace your glasses and just want to make your mornings easier!

There are many reasons why you might be considering contact lenses and an almost overwhelming number of contact lens options to choose from. Some eye conditions might require specialty contact lenses, but we’ve got lenses to fit every lifestyle, budget, and eye condition.

Contact lenses are medical devices that sit directly on the eyes. You’ll need a comprehensive eye exam along with a few extra tests and measurements to wear them comfortably.

If you’ve always wanted to try contact lenses, please book an appointment with Los Angeles EyeCare Optometry Group.

Unique Eyes, Unique Fit

The Exam

A contact lens exam requires a few extra steps than a regular eye exam. We’ll begin by asking you some questions about your lifestyle and habits. Then, we’ll examine your eyes to determine your ocular health.

Some conditions may rule out contact lens wear. If you’re prone to eye infections or have chronic dry eyes, contact lenses might not be for you.

Your cornea is as unique as you are. We need to know its shape—and if there are any irregularities—so we can provide you with the perfect fit. We’ll also assess the quality of your tear film to make sure it can sustain contact lens wear.

During the lens fitting, we’ll use a keratometer to measure your corneal curvature. We might also use corneal topography to get a better look at the surface of your cornea.

We’ll also take pupil and iris measurements. This will help determine the size of contact lens you need. This step is especially important if you want colored contact lenses.

From here, we’ll be able to determine which contact lenses will be best for your eyes.

Caring for Your Contacts

Once you’ve been properly fitted for lenses and are happy with them, you’ll need to make sure you take care of them properly.

Follow all of your optometrist’s directions carefully. 1 in 500 contact lens wearers experiences a serious infection every year from contact lens wear.

Here are some tips to prevent infections:

  • Don’t sleep in your lenses (unless you have contacts specifically designed for this purpose).
  • Keep up with your annual eye exams to ensure the health of your eyes
  • Don’t shower or use a hot tub while wearing contact lenses.
  • Follow your optometrist’s recommendations for replacing your lenses.
  • Don’t rinse your lenses with water.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water and ensure they are dry before inserting or removing lenses.
