If you wear glasses but find them inconvenient, you may be a candidate for custom contact lenses. At New Sights Eyecare in Houston, TX, our team is here to provide you with the lenses that you need to help you see clearly. Read on and we'll take a look at what you can expect from the process of getting your custom contact lenses. Our doctor is with the patient from start to finish with personalized care.
What Are Custom Contact Lenses?
There are many reasons why you might consider custom contact lenses, including:
- You find eyeglasses uncomfortable or troublesome to manage
- Eye irregularities, such as severe astigmatism that make it difficult or impossible to wear standard contact lenses
- Discomfort when wearing standard contact lenses
- An inability to see clearly with standard contact lenses
When you meet with our eye doctor to discuss your custom contact lenses, you'll learn about the different types of contacts so that you can make the right choice. We’ll guide you through the different types so that you can better choose the option that's the right fit for your needs.
Your Custom Contact Lens Fitting
Depending on the type of lenses you and your optometrist agree are the right fit for you, the measurement process may be more extensive that it would be normally. Our eye doctor may have to take additional measurements to provide your custom contact lens manufacturer with information for your specific vision needs. This may be the cause if you have a condition such as astigmatism or chronic dry eye.
Our eye doctor will schedule an appointment for following your contact lens fitting for you to come back to the office after your custom contact lenses have arrived. We will walk you through the process of properly placing your lens and will then talk with you about the best way to take care of your custom contacts.
