Contact lenses offer patients a convenient and attractive option, aside from eyeglasses. Several people opt to wear contact lenses and glasses. The world of contact lenses is expansively designed to address many eye issues. Contact lenses can also be worn for cosmetic purposes. H. Arnold Papernick in Mt Pleasant, PA, is committed to providing patients with various options for corrective and cosmetic lenses.
Our contact lens exam shares some similarities with a typical eye exam. However, there are differences. If you're interested in trying contact lenses, our optometrist can assess your eye health to determine if you'd be a good candidate for contact lenses. You can visit our office as the first step. Then, we will schedule a contact lens fitting if our contact lens exam determines you're a good candidate. After your contact lenses are prescribed, they are made to fit your eyes.
Contact Lens Options
The initial exam is designed to determine if you have underlying eye issues that would make contact lens wear difficult. This exam also determines if you might be a candidate for hard-to-fit lenses, sports lenses, or cosmetic (colored) lenses. Your lifestyle, as well as any other relevant issues, will be considered. Permeable and toric lenses are also options for patients. We will show you how to care for your lenses during your fitting and answer any questions properly. We will also teach you how to properly put in and take out your lenses.
