Contact Lens Exam & Fittings

We Find the Contact Lenses That Work For You

With the right fit, contact lenses are a great corrective option, offering comfort, convenience, and clear vision. At Trendy Eyes Optometry, we want to help you find the ideal contact lenses for your needs. Through a combination of advanced technology, expert staff, and an exceptional selection of contact lens brands, we can help you discover the most comfortable and effective contacts for your unique eyes.

Contact lens technology has advanced significantly in the last decade, and there is a lens design that can fit the needs of virtually everyone. Making the switch from eyeglasses to contact lenses requires a comprehensive eye exam as well as a contact lens exam and fitting.

Finding the Perfect Contact Lens Fit

Step 1: Exam

Contact lens exams are different from regular eye exams. Your doctor will complete the standard eye and vision testing then begin to gather additional information about your lifestyle and preferences when it comes to contact lenses. Before we can give you the perfect lenses, we must make sure you’re a suitable candidate for contacts. We’ll rule out any conditions that could cause contact lens-related complications.

Step 2: Fitting

The human eye is as unique as the human fingerprint. As a result, eyes tend to vary in size and shape. Contact lenses are not one size fits all. If a contact lens is too steep or too curved, it can cause significant eyestrain, discomfort, and damage. We want to ensure your contact lenses fit comfortably and offer the most effective results. Using a piece of technology called a corneal topographer, we’ll take remarkably precise measurements of each eye. These measurements inform which contact lenses we will prescribe to you.

Step 3: Trials

Based on the data we’ve collected so far, we’ll select the contact lenses we think will work best for you. After a short tutorial on contact lens insertion, removal, and maintenance, we’ll send you home with a trial pair of contact lenses. You’ll wear the trial lenses as per our instructions for a short period to ensure they work effectively and don’t cause you any problems.

Sometimes it takes a few different pairs of trial contact lenses to find the perfect ones, but don’t worry; we will not give up until you’re satisfied.

Specialty Contact Lenses

Scleral contacts are an excellent option for patients with hard-to-fit eyes. While most contact lenses just cover the cornea, scleral lenses cover a large portion of the sclera, or the white part of the eye. The added coverage give the lens more stability and more comfort for the wearer.

Most contact lenses are perfectly spherical, offering a consistent curve throughout the entire lens. Aspheric contact lenses, however, are not perfectly round. This allows light to interact differently with the lens, creating sharper vision for some patients, particularly those with astigmatism.

As we age, most of us develop a condition called presbyopia, which affects our near vision. This can be remedied with corrective options such a reading glasses. However, for patients with presbyopia and myopia (nearsightedness), they would have to switch between two different prescriptions; one for near vision and one for far vision.

Toric contact lenses offer multiple levels of correction within specific areas of a single lens. The patient simply has to shift their focus to see any point clearly.

Much like toric lenses, multifocal contact lenses offer a variety of corrective levels within a single lens. Multifocal lenses, however, employ a more funnel-shaped pattern. This results in a seamless transition from one corrective power to the next.

Multifocal contact lenses have proven to be a very effective method of myopia control.
