Contact Lenses for Vision Correction Types
It is important that your ocular health be the primary factor when dealing with contact lenses. Our doctors at Bayshore Optometric Clinic, in Nepean, will evaluate the health of the eye before the fitting of contacts. It will be assessed at each follow up examination. The contact lens solution will be carefully selected for each patient to ensure the health and comfort of the eyes.
Your exam results and any additional corneal measurements are used to find a contact lens suited to your specific vision needs. Astigmatism, high refractive error, presbyopia, and other conditions can complicate the search process, but Bayshore Optometric Clinic does its best to find what lens will work. After your first fitting appointment, we require that you return for a follow-up visit to evaluate your vision, comfort, and ocular health. Changes may be needed to the design if ocular health or vision is compromised. Resources are available for additional information on your eye health.
Thanks to advances in contact lens technology, it is possible for almost anyone to wear contact lenses.
