How do I know if I am a candidate for contact lenses?

Contact lens compatibility depends on various factors, including eye health, lifestyle, prescription and eye shape. An eye care professional can perform an evaluation to recommend the most suitable type of lenses.  Lens designs exist in daily and extended wear, silicone and hydrogel, gas permeable and hybrid options.  There are lenses for astigmatism, irregular corneas, presbyopia, keratoconus and everything in between.  It’s possible that disposables will not be the best option, but our doctors will review your contact lens fitting results and work to get you seeing your best using the latest technology in contact lens designs.

What should I do if I experience redness, irritation, or other issues while wearing contact lenses?

If you experience redness, irritation, or any discomfort while wearing contact lenses, follow these steps:

  • Remove the Lenses: Take out your contact lenses immediately if you notice any discomfort. Wash your hands before touching your eyes.
  • Inspect the Lenses: Check the lenses for any debris, tears, or defects. If they appear damaged, discard them and let the office know to replace them.
  • Clean and Disinfect: Clean the lenses using the recommended solution and disinfect them as instructed. Avoid using tap water or saliva to clean them.
  • Rest Your Eyes: Give your eyes a break by not wearing the lenses. If irritation persists, switch to your backup glasses and schedule an appointment for further evaluation.
  • Consult an Eye Care Professional: If the redness or irritation continues after removing and cleaning the lenses, schedule an appointment for further evaluation. It could be a sign of an infection or allergy.
  • Avoid Lens Use: Wait to use your contact lenses until the irritation subsides and you receive advice from your eye care professional.

Remember, your eye health is a priority. If you have concerns, seeking professional advice is essential.

What are the different types of contact lenses available, and how do I choose the right one for my needs?

Various types of contact lenses are available to suit different prescriptions, lifestyle demands, and eye shapes. Here are some different options:

  • Daily Disposable Lenses: These are convenient and hygienic, as you use a fresh pair daily. It is ideal for occasional wear or people with allergies and dry eyes.
  • Monthly/Extended Wear Lenses: These can be worn for a month. Great for busy schedules or challenging prescriptions, but proper cleaning and care are crucial.
  • Toric Lenses: Designed to correct astigmatism, these lenses have different powers in different meridians of the lens. They exist in all modalities of wear – daily, two week, monthly, quarterly and annually.
  • Multifocal/Bifocal Lenses: These lenses are necessary if you require correction multiple ranges of vision – distance, intermediate or near.
  • Hybrid Lenses: For irregular corneas, these provide the comfort and ease of a soft lens with the hard middle to correct challenging vision issues.  They are good for keratoconus as well as presbyopia and astigmatism.
  • Scleral Lenses – also for irregular corneas.  These vault over the cornea and land on the sclera (white part) of the eye.  This is our most specialized design.
  • Myopia control Lenses – FDA approved daily use lenses for the control of myopia in children.
  • Orthokeratology Lenses – rigid gas permeable lenses worn overnight as a retainer to treat myopia.
  • Gas Permeable Lenses – rigid lenses to treat conditions like myopia, astigmatism and presbyopia in challenging cases where soft lenses do not achieve optimal visual acuity.

Choosing the right type depends on your prescription, lifestyle, comfort, and eye health.  Our expert Optometrists will guide you in making the best choice for your needs while using the latest technology on the market. 

How often should I clean and disinfect my contact lenses, and what solution should I use?

Regular cleaning and disinfection are crucial to maintaining healthy eyes while wearing contact lenses. Here’s a general guideline:

  • Daily Disposable Lenses: These lenses are worn once and discarded, so no cleaning is needed.
  • Monthly/Extended Wear Lenses: Clean and disinfect them every night before bed. Multipurpose solution or hydrogen peroxide preservative-free solution will be recommended by your eye care professional.
  • Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Lenses: Clean and disinfect nightly with a prescribed solution approved for RGP lenses.
  • Hydrogel Lenses: Clean and disinfect nightly using a hydrogen peroxide-based system. Remember to neutralize the peroxide solution before inserting the lenses.

The optometrist will determine the best solution based on your eye health and lens material and wear schedule.  If mild dry occurs while wearing contact lenses, only preservative-free lubricating drops are recommended.  Our doctors have determined the best products on the market safe for use with contact lenses.
