Contact Lens Exams in Fair Oaks

There are many factors that our Fair Oaks optometrist will take into consideration during your contact lens exam to determine whether you're a viable candidate to wear contact lenses. One of the more important factors will be the shape and curvature of your eyes' lenses. If you have an abnormal curvature, such as an astigmatism (very common), then traditional contact lenses will not fit you comfortably. As a result, you may need to wear specialty, hard-to-fit contacts for a more secure and comfortable fit. Other eye conditions, such as dry eye, could also affect your ability to wear traditional lenses. In such cases, medicated eye drops may need to be used with your contacts to help you transition to wearing contact lenses.

Some other common examples of specialty lenses offered by our eye doctor in Fair Oaks include:

  • Gas permeable lenses
  • Toric lenses
  • Bifocal and multifocal lenses

Your lifestyle will also come into play in determine whether or not contacts are the right decision for you. If you think you may have a hard time remembering or finding the time to properly clean and care for your lenses on a daily basis, then our optometrist may recommend a daily disposable contact lens that will require less care and maintenance.
