Contacts Q&A

Am I a candidate for contact lenses?

Contact lenses are an ideal correction option for just about everyone. Modern contact lens materials are much more comfortable than in years past, so you can wear them all day long, or just while exercising or working. Contact lenses may be right for you if you:

 

  • Have difficulty seeing up close
  • Have problems seeing objects far away
  • Struggle with poor night vision

 

If you require multifocal solutions to correct both near and far vision issues, you certainly have contact lens options available, too. You may even be a candidate for contact lenses if you have eye problems, such as astigmatism or keratoconus, which require specialty contact lenses to correct your vision. 

What happens during a contact lens exam?

Westchester Eyecare Center provides comprehensive contact lens screenings that begin with an evaluation of your personal and family medical history. Your doctor tailors your contact lens exam to include any special screenings you may need. Depending on your initial evaluation, your contact lens exam may include:

  • Pressure level tests
  • Eye shape evaluation
  • Eye muscle testing
  • Moisture level evaluation
  • Measurements of the curvature and diameter of your corneas

Your doctor also talks with you about your daily lifestyle to help you determine which type of contact lenses you may need. From daily wears to contacts that last for a month and everything in between, you have plenty of options for comfortable contact lenses at Westchester Eyecare Center. The team can also get you fitted for color contacts to correct color irregularities. 

How often do I need a contact lens exam?

The team at Westchester Eyecare Center is dedicated to ensuring your contact lenses help you see more clearly and are as comfortable as possible. In general, your contact lens prescription is valid for 12 months.

 

It’s important to schedule a contact lens exam once a year — or as recommended — to keep your prescription up-to-date and to check for signs of eye disease. But you may need more frequent contact lens exams if you have certain health issues, such as diabetes, that increase your risk of vision loss and eye problems.
