Your contacts should correct your vision without causing you any discomfort. That's why it's important to make sure that you wear contacts that fit your eyes perfectly. Edward Bancroft, OD in Anchorage, and Palmer Vision Clinic in Palmer, AK both offer contact lens fittings.
What to Expect During Contact Lens Fittings
To get the right fit for your lenses, your optometrist will carefully measure your eyes. Your cornea's curvature will help determine the base curve and diameter of your contact lenses. Having more information about the size and shape of your eyes will help to determine the best type of contacts for you.
In addition to taking these measurements, our eye doctor will check your tear film. It's important to make sure that your eyes produce enough tears to keep your cornea moist even when you're wearing contacts. If your eyes are on the drier side, you may need to wear contacts that are specifically designed for dry eyes.
Once we've measured your eyes, we'll have you try on a pair of contacts so that we can measure how they fit. This will also allow us to see how your eyes respond to contacts. We'll make sure that the contacts you're prescribed are a good fit for your eye's needs.
Choosing the Right Contact Lenses
In addition to finding contacts that fit your eyes, we'll ask you questions about your lifestyle so that we can help you find contacts that work for you. Some people prefer the convenience of daily disposable contacts, while others prefer to wear the same pair of contacts for a longer period. You can even choose contacts that change the color of your eyes! We can talk to you more about how to care for your contacts so that you'll be able to wear your new lenses without any issues. Whether you wear your new contacts every day or only wear them every once in a while, we'll help you to find comfortable contacts with a great fit.
