Being able to see clearly is something that you should be able to do with ease every day. Some people can see clearly naturally while others may need some help. Vision impairments are quite common. In fact, millions of people have some sort of vision impairment and they can develop during any stage of life. Here at the optical offices of Paul Thompson, OD you can get the vision care that you need, especially if you are looking to get contact lenses in Centennial Centre.
When it comes to treating vision impairments, there are several methods available to you. Eyeglasses are often the most commonly prescribed of optical tools as they are easy to wear and are easy to maintain. Some people opt for laser surgery so that they do not have to rely on optical tools at all. For people who do not want to undergo surgery, or possibly cannot, and may not always want to wear eyeglasses then contact lenses are a viable option. By you cannot simply apply an eyeglass prescription to contact lenses. In order to get contacts you will need a comprehensive contact lens exam and fitting and Paul Thompson, OD can provide the necessary procedures. The reason why contacts require their own exam is because they rest directly on the eye. It is essential that a doctor examine your eyes and set wine whether they are healthy enough and capable of wearing contact lenses for extended periods of time without issue. Additionally, contact lenses and eyeglasses tend to require unique prescription strengths so that will need to be determined separately. Once Dr. Thompson has examined your eye health and the general vision needs of your eyes, taking all of the right measurements and such, you can move onto your fitting before you get contact lenses in Centennial Centre. A fitting will help you make a decision regarding what type and brand of contacts you wear. The fitting will also provide Dr. Thompson with the opportunity to teach you how to safely use your contacts, wear them and care for them, too.
