For many people who have worn glasses for years, the prospect of wearing contact lenses can feel like a new type of freedom. With contact lenses, you gain more peripheral vision. Wearing contact lenses is also more discreet than wearing glasses. Kelly Vision Center in Goodlettsville understands your desire for improved vision and improving your appearance. If you want to try contact lenses, our optometrist can help you find the right prescription.
Wearing Contact Lenses for the First Time
If you have never worn contact lenses before, your appointment will include not only an assessment of your eye health and prescription but also how the contact lens fits your eye. Our optometrist will assess your prescription and the shape of your eye to figure out which type of lens is ideal for you. After you take your contact lenses home, you will be asked to return in about a week. When you return, you will wear the contact lenses to the appointment to show our eye doctor how well the lenses fit in your eye.
Updating Your Contact Lens Prescription
If you are already a contact lens wearer, you still need to make an appointment for a contact lens exam. Not only will our doctor look at your prescription to see if anything has changed, but will also assess your general eye health. We want to make sure that you are not experiencing signs of eye disease, including glaucoma or cataracts.
It is helpful to bring your previous prescription and contact lens to your appointment. This will help our optometrist make a better determination of your prescription and how much your vision has changed since your last appointment. At this time, we will also help you select new contact lenses. If you find that your previous brand no longer fits comfortably, you can try on a new pair. You can even try a different type of lens if soft lenses are no longer the best option for your eyes.
