Contact Lens Fittings can be added on to your comprehensive eye examination. A contact lens fitting requires additional tests and measurements to ensure that the lenses fit well, the lenses provide optimum vision, and your eyes are as healthy as possible while wearing the contact lenses. This testing involves procedures which are not required by patients that only wear eyeglasses. The contact lens professional fees are for the extra time and expertise utilized by the doctor to make sure you have the best possible contact lens prescription. Please ask us about the contact lens fitting fees for your particular prescription.

Comprehensive Eye Care for Various Visual Needs
You might like to wear contacts but find them uncomfortable to wear or discover that they cause more problems with your vision than they resolve. If you’re in this category, you could be a good candidate for custom contact lenses. Your options for custom contact lenses include:
- Rigid gas permeable, which are known to provide better vision than soft contacts and are great alternatives for individuals with oddly-shaped corneas. Gas permeable contact lenses are also a viable option for those with unusual corneal curvature or keratoconus.
- Soft custom lenses, which are one go-to choice for those with hard-to-fit eyes and can be designed to allow for the eye to receive more oxygen. Soft custom lenses are also used for kids eight and older who are experiencing nearsightedness.
Caring for Custom Lenses
In regards to taking care of rigid gas permeable and soft custom lenses, the requirements are no different from those for regular contact lenses. Something to consider with custom lenses is the fact that they are made to be worn longer than regular lenses, which means that users should take steps to take extra great care of them between lens replacements.
