Contact lenses give you a more streamlined or athletic facial profile than glasses. But are you wearing a pair that fits your eye perfectly?
Our optometrists at Eyes on Main are experts in determining how brands fit our patients and which patients are candidates for long-term contact lens wear. A comprehensive contact lens exam lays the groundwork for a successful lens fitting.
There are many websites online where you can enter your prescription and corneal dimensions and get contacts in the mail. But that practice leaves a lot to chance. Many patients give up on contacts because they’re missing the right expertise to find the perfect fit. While the odd patient might be better off without them, we find that most just need the right product from the right brand.
The Eyes on Main team can help with that through competent examination and corneal measurement. Please book an appointment, and we can set you up with a contact lens exam that factors everything and adds that special touch.
Our single-vision daily, weekly, and monthly contact lenses serve most prescriptions. Still, we also provide contacts with novel design features for diverse needs.
Your contact lenses should compensate for your eye’s unique needs.We also factor in the level of tear production because dry eyes patients benefit from special lenses. Whatever your curvature, diameter, or health concerns, we’ve likely got a contact lens on hand that can help.
For patients with astigmatism, regular, single-vision contact lenses won’t do. But toric contact lenses with corresponding corrective powers unique to your eye dispel the blurry vision and eye strain. The basic design principle characterizing toric lenses from leading brands lies in making a contact lens that spins into place on your cornea.
An uneven corneal shape — which causes the refractive error — gets covered by the toric lens as it slots into place. They’re designed so that a marked portion of the contact lens anchors in perfect alignment with your astigmatism.
Every astigmatism needs a prescribed correction, and we fit your toric contact lenses bespoke to your cornea at each contact lens fitting.
Presbyopia along with myopia makes focusing on the road while driving and switching to reading a unique challenge. Fortunately, progressive glasses make seamless focal transitions for your eyes as they adjust to a different focal point. But the switch between prescriptive strengths rules out single-vision contact lenses.
Bifocal contact lenses can offer a balance between the need for far and close vision. But these lenses have a disruptive way of focusing light and images into the back of your eye. Research and development on contact lenses from leading brands has yielded multifocal contact lenses that smooth the “image jumps” present in bifocals.
A patient affected by presbyopia needs a prescribed correction, and we fit your multifocal contact lenses carefully at each contact lens fitting.
The Eyes on Main team can help with that through competent examination, prescription, and corneal fitting. Please book a contact lens fitting, and we can set you up with a contact lens exam that factors everything and adds that special touch for any contact lenses you might need.
As we grow older, we lose the ability to focus on up-close objects, especially at night. This condition is known as presbyopia and begins around age 40. Balanced Progressive™ technology allows users of Cooper’s multifocal lenses to focus with ease and provides long-lasting, 30-day comfort.
All Clariti 1-Day lenses feature high water content — a key feature for comfort. AquaGen™ technology makes it possible. The AquaGen™ process creates a lens that naturally attracts and binds water molecules to the lens surface, so your eyes can stay moist and comfortable throughout your day.
