Prescriptions for contact lenses includes the same eyeglass-power prescriptions in a lens form that can correct refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, or any combination. Depending on the degree of your refractive error, and the type of contacts prescribed, your prescription for the contact lenses can be much different than those of your glasses prescription. Contact lens prescriptions also contain additional specifications that are not included on a glasses prescription, such as base curve, diameter, lens brand, and material.
Most people will get used to the soft contact lenses, generally made of hydrogel or silicone hydrogel, right away of in a few short days. Rigid gas permeable lenses might take a few weeks longer for your eyes to fully adjust to them. To make the adjustment easier, you can start by wearing your new contact lenses for only a few hours each day. Then, as you feel more comfortable, you can start increasing the amount of time you leave them in.
Freedom from glasses has become easier, more comfortable and more affordable with the advent of new contact lenses, cleaning solutions, and fitting techniques. Our offices have the latest in contact lens technology: silicone hydrogel, rigid gas permeable, lenses for astigmatism, bifocal lenses, and colored lenses. We also fit specialty lenses for our dry eye, post LASIK, and keratoconic patients.
