Swan Family Optometry Offers Contact Lens Exams in Fair Oaks

Contact lenses offer some distinct advantages over glasses. They correct your vision discreetly and invisibly, they can't cause ear or nose discomfort, and you don't have to worry about breaking them during sporting events and other high-impact activities. But choosing the contact lenses that fit both your eyes and your lifestyle isn't as straightforward as simply having a vision test to determine your corrective prescription. You'll also need a separate contact lens exam -- and Swan Family Optometry is a proud provider of contact lens exams in Fair Oaks.

A Critical First Step in Selecting Contact Lenses

Unlike general eye and vision exams, which focus on determining your visual acuity and your need for corrective lenses, contact lens exams focus on making sure the contacts you receive a perfect match for your eyes in every possible way. Your Fair Oaks optometrist will take painstaking measurements of each eye's pupil, corneal and iris diameters; this is a crucial step for ensuring that we order the right size of lens for comfortable, accurate vision correction. We also use a technique called keratometry to calculate the basic curvature of each cornea, as well as corneal topography to "map" every tiny deviation from the norm.

Our eye doctor in Fair Oaks then looks at your ocular health, vision prescription and personal preferences. Some conditions such as dry eye, giant papillary conjunctivitis (sensitivity to the proteins that collect on contacts), and a corneal deformity called keratoconus may require specialized lens options, or perhaps single-use contacts instead of extended-wear contacts. (On the other hand, if you need to have corrected vision from the instant you first wake up, our Fair Oaks optometrist may steer you toward extended-wear contacts.) Strong vision prescriptions may call for more accurate correction than generic soft contacts can provide. 

Our Fair Oaks Eye Doctor Can Match You Up With the Ideal Contacts

Once our Fair Oaks eye doctor knows what kinds of contacts make sense for your needs, it's time to make the final choice. We offer:

  • Toric lenses for superior correction of astigmatism
  • Scleral lenses, which counteract keratoconus by vaulting over the cornea completely
  • Multifocal (or monovision) contacts that provide multiple distance corrections for presbyopia
  • Gas permeable contacts, which correct stronger prescriptions with great precision while also collecting fewer proteins (a plus for keratoconus patients)
  • Moisture-retaining contacts to improve comfort for dry eye sufferers

Our eye doctor in Fair Oaks can fit you with a variety of leading brands, from Focus Dailies or Acuvue One Day disposables to Focus Night and Day of Pure Vision lenses that can be worn for up to 30 days. We even offer cosmetic/colored contacts, including Freshlook Colorblends, Acuvue Colors, and Wild Eyes brands.
