One size does not fit all when it comes to contact lenses. Dr. Tashner will need to take some measurements to properly fit your contact lenses. Contact lenses that do not fit properly could cause discomfort, blurry vision or even damage the eye. Dr. Tashner is known to fit even the hardest to fit patients!
In order to assure that the fitting curve of the lens properly fits the curve of your eye, Dr. Tashner will measure the curvature of the cornea or front surface of the eye. Dr. Tashner may also measure the size of your pupil or your iris. This measurement is especially important if you are considering specialized lenses.
One of the most common problems affecting contact lens wear is dry eyes. If the lenses are not kept hydrated, they will become uncomfortable and your eyes will feel dry, irritated and itchy.
After deciding which pair of lenses could work best with your eyes, Dr. Tashner may have you try on a pair of lenses to confirm the fit and comfort before finalizing and ordering your lenses. Dr. Tashner will also provide care and hygiene instructions including how to insert and remove your lenses, how long to wear them and how to store them if relevant.
