Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are a common choice for those needing corrective lenses for their effect on the wearer’s appearance and lifestyle. For instance, many wearers first acquire contact lenses when participating in sports and have reached an age when they can safely care for their contacts and eyes. If you live in or near Pompano Beach, FL, and need an eye doctor to obtain contacts or other vision care, call us at Atlantic Eye Care & Spa.

What Are the Different Types of Contacts?

Contact lenses are available in different types because patients have varying needs. Here are a few:

Lens Material: Some patients may suffer from dry eye and need a special type of contacts to counter it.

Replacement Schedule: Depending on the type, patients commonly dispose of their contacts daily, months, or when they need a new prescription.

Wear Schedule: Daily wear lenses are worn only during waking hours but there are contacts you can wear at night.

How Do I Obtain Contacts?

Obtaining contact lenses begins with scheduling a contact lens exam from an optometrist near you. If you already have a prescription for eyeglasses, you will still need to do a contact lens exam. This separate exam is necessary because your eyeglasses prescription omits information about your eyes that are necessary for you to get the right kind of contacts.

After finding the best fit for your contacts, we will give instructions for inserting, handling, and sterilizing your contacts. You then use them during a trial period. Afterwards, we will start your regular prescription if the trial pair works well.

Some patients use contacts that are considered hard to fit due to their prescription, the physical shape of their eyes, or dry eyes. If you are concerned you might not qualify for contacts, ask our team about specialty contact lenses and we will see if we can accommodate you.
