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.
