Eyewear-Free Vision Correction
Glasses are a great way to correct vision, but just because it works for one person doesn’t mean it’s the right solution for you. If you can’t or don’t want to wear glasses, contacts may be the answer you’ve been looking for.
Contacts can provide you with clear vision without altering your appearance, and we’re here to help you find the perfect pair.
Before you can order contacts, the first step is to get a contact lens exam and fitting. During a contact lens exam and fitting, one of our doctors will assess your vision to find a pair of contacts that suits your specific needs.
Why Do You Need a Contact Lens Exam?
Because contacts are placed directly on the eyes, they require additional care compared to glasses. A proper contact lens exam and fitting ensure that your contacts will safely and effectively correct your vision according to your vision needs.
During a contact lens exam and fitting, our doctors will assess the shape and size of your eye to make sure your contacts fit and move appropriately. Additionally, a contact lens exam allows us to teach you about contact lens care and maintenance, which is essential to keep your eyes and vision healthy.
At Eyes on Plainville, we recommend that our patients get a contact lens exam and fitting annually or before changing brands. This helps ensure proper vision and eye health, no matter what vision changes you experience.
