EyeWorks Is Your Preferred Optometrist in Lumberton and Benson for Contact Lenses
Eyeglasses are not for everyone who needs vision correction. Some individuals would prefer to wear contacts and avoid having to wear glasses because of how they look or feel.
Like many people who wear eyeglasses every day, you may be interested in visiting your optometrist in Lumberton to check if contact lenses are a suitable alternative for you. We’ve found that patients who dislike having to wear glasses and who also would prefer a non-surgical solution are quite interested in trying contacts.
Whether your primary motivation is to improve your appearance by shedding glasses or simply to enjoy the convenience of contacts, we are ready to consult with you about making the switch.
At EyeWorks Vision Center, we specialize in comprehensive contacts evaluations. For your convenience, we have two offices, in Benson and Lumberton. Keep in mind that before contacts can be dispensed, you have to undergo an examination from a professional optometrist. Contacts aren’t appropriate for everybody, but you can only find out after having your vision checked.
Begin with a Comprehensive Examination from Your Lumberton Optometrist
Your Lumberton optometrist will need to consult with you about contacts before making an evaluation. You’ll discuss topics including your lifestyle and why you are interested in transitioning from glasses to contacts. For example, if you lead an active lifestyle and sports are a part of your daily schedule, contacts may be preferable to eyeglasses.
A thorough examination is then required. The optometrist will check your binocular vision to see what level of correction is needed, similar to what is done before dispensing a prescription for glasses. Instruments help the eye doctor check for refractive error in your eyes (with the problem being astigmatism, farsightedness or nearsightedness).
Different Types of Contact Lenses
In some cases, contact lenses will not be the ideal choice. For example, if the optometrist determines that you have allergies or the condition known as dry eye, eyeglasses may be more appropriate. If contacts are a good choice, there will be some options for you to discuss with the optometrist. Today’s contacts are available in a rigid gas permeable form as well as soft forms.
Depending on what type and brand of contact lenses you decide to go with, you’ll need to change them according to a particular schedule, such as once a day, once per week or only once per month. There are advantages and drawbacks to each kind of contact lens, so it’s important to discuss the details with your optometrist to get the best fitting.
