Contact lens exams and fittings are just another example of the extra mile that we go here at Riverdell Family Vision Care to make certain that you, our valued customer, enjoy the best possible experience when wearing our New Milford contact lenses. If they don’t feel right when you put them in, then it stands to reason that you won’t wear them when you need them the most. Comfort is key, as is proper positioning. We take that extra time to ensure that your prescription is just right for you and put the odds in your favor of a smooth and easy time when you wear your contacts.
There are several advantages that our New Milford contact lenses have over eyeglasses, such as offering you unhindered peripheral (side-to-side) vision. Also, your facial appearance will be unaltered, and contacts provide a more natural type of vision. All patients need a comprehensive eye exam once per year to determine their current vision requirements. But with contacts, a special exam is also necessary. This is because unlike with eyeglasses, your contacts touch parts of your eye. And those parts– the cornea, conjunctiva, and eyelids– need to be checked so to find any potential concerns.
Your prescription for our New Milford contact lenses will be made right here by our optician, and that’s also when a fitting will take place. The goal is to enhance your vision, promote maximum comfort, and minimize any chances of experiencing eye irritation or infection. Ideal alignment will make sure that your contacts are giving you the absolute sharpest and clearest vision correction that you are capable of achieving.
You can choose from hard or soft contacts, and with soft you have four other subcategories as options with our New Milford contact lenses. Among them are daily wear, extended wear, disposable, and the ever popular color changing variety, for which you don’t even need vision correction. Wear them for fun, as an enjoyable fashion accessory. Hard lenses are typically best for severe nearsightedness or astigmatism, but may be more challenging to adjust to. Soft lenses are more comfortable, and give you those lifestyle choices to suit your needs.
