It’s important that you can see comfortably and clearly every day. If not, you may be experiencing several side effects that are impeding on the quality of your daily life, and in some situations, they may even be putting you in danger. Not being able to see clearly can prevent you from operating a vehicle or even walking down a busy street. It’s important that you can see the world around you and observe things that need paying attention to, so if you have a vision impairment, it’s important that you wear the proper prescription lenses. If you are interested in contact lenses, then our eye doctor Paul Thompson, OD can provide you with a Kensington contact lens exam and fitting.

People with certain allergic conditions, present issues, and other problems may not be able to wear contact lenses in a healthy manner. It’s important to establish this before getting contacts, especially since it can cause irritation and damage if you have an infection or other concern. Additionally, contact lenses require a different prescription strength than glasses do. This is because contact lenses are placed at a different distance from your eyes than glasses are. Contacts are placed directly over the cornea whereas glasses rest on the bridge of your nose, and this difference may impact your prescription. Paul Thompson OD is here to provide you with complete testing and look out for any present issues. During the fitting, you can sample a variety of different types of lenses as well as different brands. Dr. Thompson can also teach you how to properly take care of your lenses, as well.

There are many different types of lenses and each kind has different features as well as pros and cons. Dr. Thompson can walk you through all this information and help you make an informed decision. If you are looking to get contacts, then you need a Kensington contact lens exam. Call us today to book an appointment with Paul Thompson, OD and to learn more about what the exam will entail.

It is not a luxury to have your eyes checked every year. Our optometrist, Dr. Paul Thompson, recommends it for every one of our valued patients. It’s an essential part of top quality eye care and in the achievement and maintenance of your optimal vision and eye health. And thanks to our affordable eye exams in Kensington, you can feel confident that your eyes are being taken care of, without having to overextend your budget.

There are two components to an eye exam. First is a vision test, during which our optometrist will have you read from an eye chart, do a visual field test, and a refraction test all in an effort to determine how well you are seeing right now. In turn, if you need new or updated corrective lenses, a prescription can be written for you and filled here conveniently at our optical store. There is no reason to settle for subpar vision, or even just adequate vision. With eyeglasses or contacts lenses, you can have the sharpest and clearest eyesight that you are capable of. And don’t be fooled into thinking that your current prescription is sufficient if it’s older than a year. Your vision requirements are always evolving, and that’s why you need our affordable eye exams in Kensington annually. The second part of your visit is concentrated on screening you for common eye diseases. This includes glaucoma and cataracts, which are applicable to everyone; and also macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, for those to whom it is appropriate. All of these conditions share a trait: they have no obvious symptoms in their early stages. It’s not until you suffer a degree of vision loss or eye damage that you become aware. Our affordable eye exams in Kensington will go a long way toward keeping that from happening.

With all that’s at stake, and a reasonably priced exam, there is no reason not to call us immediately and schedule your yearly visit. Why not do it right now?
