Why Do You Need a Contact Lens Fitting?

Contact lenses are not a one-size-fits-all solution and require a proper fitting to safely correct vision issues. Your contact lens prescription will differ from your eyeglasses prescription, so it is essential to receive a contact lens fitting even if you already have a prescription.

If your contacts don’t fit properly, you could experience several problems leading to serious side effects. Some of the dangers associated with improper-fitting contact lenses include: 

Advantages of Wearing Contacts

Although both glasses and contact lenses can help correct your vision issues, there are several reasons why people may choose to wear contact lenses over glasses:

  • Contact lenses don’t steam up or get water spots
  • They provide a wider field of vision
  • They don’t distort or reflect light
  • Contact lenses won’t slip or fall down
  • They don’t cause facial discomfort
  • They don’t restrict your movement
  • Contact lenses don’t alter your physical appearance
  • You can wear contacts with sunglasses

What Does a Doctor Look For in an Eye Exam?

At The Optical Connection, a typical contact lens fitting includes the following steps:

  • A consultation where we will ask about your medical history and lifestyle. Your optometrist will consider your general health, hobbies, and profession to decide which contacts are best for you.
  • A standard eye exam where we examine your overall vision and eye health, noting if any issues could make contacts uncomfortable for you. 
  • A contact lens fitting where we will determine your prescription and measure your eyes to find the correct size, style, and shape of contact lens needed for your eyes.
  • Following a contact lens fitting, we will give you a pair of trial lenses to see if your new contact lenses are the right fit. Then, we’ll see if any adjustments are necessary during your follow-up appointment before ordering your contacts for long-term wear. 

What are MiSight Contact Lenses? 

At The Optical Connection, we offer specialty contact lenses to ensure that your needs are taken care of. 

MiSight contact lenses are daily disposable prescription lenses that have been shown to slow myopia progression by 59% in children and adults. 

MiSight contact lenses have 2 main components:

  • One part of the MiSight contact lens is responsible for correcting the refractive error that causes nearsighted vision. 
  • The second part of the MiSight contact lens helps focus the light in front of the retina, which can slow the progression of Myopia.
