Contact Lens Exams and Fittings, Types of Contact Lenses – Soft and Rigid Gas Permeable in Forest Hills
Whether you are already a contact lens wearer, or want to get contact lenses for the first time, you should visit us at Eye Q Optical. Patients can visit our vision practice for a contact lens exam and fitting by one of our top-notch optometrists, Dr. Katherine Gut or Dr. Yelena Babayeva, and then purchase contact lenses Forest Hills.
You do not need to have a contact lens exam and fitting at our practice in order to purchase contact lenses Forest Hills at our optical store. However, all contact lens purchases need to be accompanied by a prescription. This is because contact lenses can actually damage the eye if they do not fit your eyes precisely. This is why during a contact lens exam and fitting, our eye doctor will take specific measurements of your eyes. Once our optometrist has given you a contact lens exam, she will be able to let you know which type of contact lens will work best for you. Even if you have astigmatism or dry eye, you can now have your vision safely and comfortably corrected using contact lenses. Most people will wear soft lenses because they are so comfortable and extremely easy to get used to. However, some patients may still see better when their vision is corrected using rigid gas permeable lenses. Soft contact lenses come in different styles including color-changing lenses; daily wear lenses; disposable lenses; and extended wear lenses. Color changing lenses will make it appear as though the color of your eyes have changed. Daily wear lenses are worn for about 18 hours a day and are then removed for disinfection and to rest the eyes. Disposable lenses are worn once and thrown out and replaced with a new pair of lenses. Extended wear lenses can be worn for many days in a row.
When you want to purchase contact lenses Forest Hills or have a contact lens exam and fitting, we hope you will visit us at Eye Q Optical.
