Contact Lens Exam Ft. Myers
Maintaining Good Eye Health While Wearing Contacts!
During your contact lens exam, our contact lens specialist will analyze your refractive prescription and evaluate your corneal health, including your tears and lids structures. Once we gather all the necessary information, we will discuss your expectations with contact lenses and suggest the best lens and care system. We will teach you the insertion, removal, and care of your lenses with TLC. Insertion and removal are easy when you are taught properly. You can usually leave wearing your new contact lenses that same day. You may require a return visit included with the exam. Schedule your Contact Lens Exam Ft.

Custom-Made Soft Contact Lenses
Better Vision With Lenses Made Just For You!
Disposable contact lenses are great, but sometimes they do not provide the full correction, and we must think about custom-made lenses.
Disposables only come in predetermined powers, curves, and diameters. Many people need custom-made, but they are arbitrarily fitted in disposables enduring uncomfortable lenses with poor-quality vision. Our contact lens expert will give you options! Custom-made contact lenses come in expanded powers, more base curves, and larger or smaller diameters to best fit your eyes. Here, we give you options! Contact Lens Exam Ft. Myers

Contact Lenses for Distance and Near
MONOVISION CONTACT LENSES:
Monovision contact lenses are worn to correct one eye for distance vision and the other eye to correct near vision. This modality works very well, but multifocal lenses have slowly replaced it.
MULTIFOCAL CONTACT LENSES:
These lenses are equivalent to progressive eyeglasses as you can see distance, intermediate, and near. They corrected near and farsighted refractive errors in the past, but now they also correct astigmatism. Contact lens exam Fort Myers serves S. Ft Myers, Estero and all of Lee county.
Keratoconus is a condition that affects one person out of 2000. The protrusion and bulging of the cornea make the tissue thinner and irregular, making the quality of vision with glasses poor. We fit scleral lenses for most Keratoconus because this lens provides good-quality vision. These lenses are as large as most soft lenses but are made of an RGP (semisoft material). The lenses are vaulted, and the inner space left is filled with fluid, never touching your corneas, only a tiny margin area outside the cornea, allowing comfortable wear. You will require several visits. Schedule your Contact Lens Exam Ft. Myers Today. Call us for a free consultation.
Corneal Topography of Keratoconus
Semi-Soft Lenses (RGP) Gas Permeable Lenses.
They are sometimes erroneously referred to as hard lenses. These lenses are semi-soft as they flex and allow oxygen exchange between the cornea and lens. Hard lenses were made of hard material that did not allow oxygen exchange. There are many advantages to gas-permeable lenses.
Soft Lenses come in different materials, and their high water content makes them extremely pliable; they require less adaptation time. Soft lenses come in disposable designs and are also available custom-made.
Contact Lens Materials
Color contact lenses provide an enhanced color or can even change the color of your eyes.! Many patients are told that these lenses only correct Myopia or hyperopia, but not astigmatism. In addition to Myopia and Hyperopia, we also have color contacts that correct astigmatism. Color contacts for astigmatism come in many colors, not just a few.
