When you wear contact lenses, you can only get the most out of them if they fit properly and comfortably. Irritation, inflammation, and infection will only discourage you from putting them in, which means you’re not getting the vision correction you need. At the office of Dr. Chris DiGiorgio, it is our priority to offer contact lens exams and fittings as part of our total commitment to our eye care Mamaroneck.
A contact lens exam is an extension of the comprehensive eye exam that all adults should have every year. When you wear contacts, they touch your cornea, conjunctiva, and eyelid, which means that if there are any issues or abnormalities in those parts of your eyes, it could lead to a problem. And so our eye care Mamaroneck checks those parts of your eyes thoroughly. If a reason for concern is found, it may need to be treated, or you might decide instead to go with eyeglasses. The fitting portion of the visit is based on two things. First is proper centering. Your prescription is written by our eye doctor to give you the sharpest and clearest vision possible. If your lenses are not centered ideally, you can miss out on that. Second, it is essential that the contacts feel good when you put them in. And since our eye care Mamaroneck is pleased to carry a full line of contact lenses, with options for correcting astigmatism and presbyopia, as well as multifocal choices, you will have no problem getting exactly what you need and want. Simply put, we want you to have the best possible experience with your contact lenses.
While it’s on your mind, call us right now and set up an appointment to come in for our contact lens exam and fitting. It’s the foundation of improving your vision.
