Choosing the contact lenses that are right for you depends on your vision and comfort. In fact, contact lenses may not be for you at all, and you may prefer to wear prescription eyeglasses only. However, at Lens Lab Express, our optometrists have been fitting specialty contact lenses for years and have seen some incredible changes in that time. It is very important that your contact lenses are fitted correctly based on your prescription, eye shape, and specific needs. With many different styles of contact lenses offered to purchase at our store, it is best to inform yourself about the Corona contact lens exam process, as well as the various types of lenses.

A routine eye exam is not the same as a contact lens exam. For contact lens wearers, a Corona contact lens exam is necessary to ensure the lenses are fitting both eyes properly and that the health of the eyes is not harmed by the contact lenses. If you wear or want contact lenses, you will need a contact lens exam in addition to a comprehensive eye exam. We will perform special tests during a contact lens exam to evaluate your vision with contacts. One test, for example, will measure your eye surface to determine what size and type of contacts are best for you. With the results of the tests, our eye doctor can provide a contact lens prescription that is the right fit for your eyes. An improper fitting or prescription of contacts can damage the health of the eyes. Once your exam is complete, it is time to decide which type of contact lenses offered at our optical store are best for you. Rigid or hard contact lenses, also called gas-permeable lenses, are a shrinking segment of the industry, but our eye doctors still have a large number of patients who wear them. Soft contact lenses are the most frequently prescribed and purchased at our optometry office. This is due to their tremendous comfort, and are now even available for patients with astigmatism and dry eyes. Once you’ve decided between hard or soft lenses, however, there still are many different types to choose from. There are daily wear lenses, extended wear lenses, and disposable lenses. Color-changing lens which, as the name suggests, change the color of your iris, are also an option, even if vision correction is not required.

So if you prefer hard or soft, extended wear or daily disposable, it is important to first consult our optometry and vision center on which style of contact lenses are best suited for your particular prescription, eye shape, and specific needs. If you would like to learn more about the types of contact lenses we offer, we recommend that you visit our practice’s main website to browse through some additional, detailed information that you might find useful. If you have any specific questions or concerns regarding Corona contact lens exam, or any of our other services, please do not hesitate to contact the staff here directly.
