Contact Lenses

Contact Lenses

Contact lenses can be a great choice for clearer vision if you don't want to wear eyeglasses. However, it's important to start with an eye exam to make sure your eyes are healthy and suitable for contact lens wear. While most people can wear them, it's not true of everyone, and you want to be sure your eye doctor gives you the go-ahead before choosing contacts. If you're in the Saratoga Springs or Glens Falls areas, our team at Bay Optical can help you get started on your contact lens journey.

Start with an Eye Exam

Getting contact lenses isn't difficult, but it's important to make sure you go about it in the right way. That means starting with an eye exam to ensure your eyes are healthy. This is also when your eye doctor will determine the exact prescription you need based on your vision. For the most part, this exam is similar to the one you'd have for eyeglasses or a routine eye check. However, there's an additional part that needs to be included.

Include a Contact Lens Exam

A contact lens exam will be included with your eye exam and involves a closer examination of the surface of your eye. To wear contacts comfortably, your corneas need to be smooth and have the right shape. There are contact lenses available for people with irregularly shaped corneas, but they're different from the standard soft lenses that most people wear. A contact lens exam provides your optometrist with the specifics they need about your individual eyes.

Work With Your Optometrist

Optometry has come a long way, and that means there are more options for contact lenses than ever before. Whether you can wear soft lenses with ease or you need a more specialized kind of lens, there's a good chance you can wear contact lenses. Before you choose them, though, you want to know that your eyes are healthy, what kinds of lenses you need, and whether they're the right choice for your lifestyle. Your optometrist can help answer all those questions for you.
