Contact lenses have come a long way in the last ten years. New materials, better measuring techniques and a broad range of options for length of wear have increased the number of people who now wear contacts for their daily activities.
Procare Vision Center is on the leading edge of contact lens prescription. If you have not had successful fittings in the past, donít let that discourage you from an appointment with us to find the right contacts for your lifestyle today!
Contact lenses are medical devices that require thorough testing to ensure accuracy and safety. After your initial visual assessment and health exam, the doctor will discuss contact lens options and conduct a contact fitting for you. This includes evaluation of the lenses on your eyes to ensure good ocular health as well as optimal vision. The doctor will also take appropriate measurements as well as determine your contact prescription. Included in your fitting fee are trial lenses, contact lens checks and 12 months of coverage in case you should have any contact related eye issues. Standard fees apply for soft disposable lenses that correct basic nearsightedness or farsightedness. Specialty fitting fees apply for patients that wear more difficult prescriptions such as bifocals or astigmatism. First time contact wearers fees are a bit more expensive but includes an initial training class with one of our professional associates. As well as follow-up classes and contact checks as needed through the initial learning period. Upon completion of the fitting, or upon being finalized by the doctor, the patient may then purchase their supply of lenses. Trial lenses may leave the office only after a fitting is performed and paid in full. Each year a contact lens exam is required to keep your contact lens prescription current.
Trial lenses are available to patients who have completed their visual exam & contact fitting and are deemed suitable for contact lens wear by the doctor. Trial lenses are also available throughout the year should you lose or tear one of your contacts.
A contact lens exam is more extensive than a traditional eye exam. It includes the measurements of the eye and examination of the external eye health. The doctor will also evaluate the vision, fit and comfort with contact lenses on to determine which type of contacts will work best for you.
It is very important that you use only the solution recommended by the doctor. Not all contacts are compatible with all solutions! Please call our office immediately if you experience any burning with your contact lens solution.
