The Contact Lens Consultation
Contact lens technology is always evolving and now just about anyone can wear contact lenses part-time or full-time. One of the initial steps in a contact lens consultation is to discuss with your eye doctor some lifestyle considerations that could impact the type of contacts that best suit you. If you have a particular eye condition, such as astigmatism or dry eye syndrome, your eye doctor will have specific recommendations for the correct type or brand for your optimal comfort and vision needs. If you are over 40 and experience problems seeing small print, your eye doctor may recommend multifocal lenses or monovision lenses to correct your unique vision needs.
