About Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are a great alternative to eyeglasses for many patients. At Mid Ohio Eye, our skilled doctors and technicians will strive to find the right contact lenses for you. From simple contact lenses to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism to specialty contact lenses for patients who need bifocals, we offer a wide array of contact lens services.

A comprehensive examination of the eye is required for a contact lens fitting. This exam evaluates the internal and external health of the eye. As part of the contact lens consultation, your doctor will discuss your lifestyle to assist in the selection of which contact lens will address your visual needs. It is helpful to bring your current contact lens boxes and/or prescriptions to determine if changes need to be made.

If a patient is new to contact lenses they will have the initial contact lens fitting, training and possibly re-check visits. At the initial fitting, the doctor will determine what type of correction the patient needs and what type of modality is best suited. A diagnostic or trial lens is selected and evaluated. Once the lens is dispensed, the patient will be trained on how to insert and remove the lens. In addition, they will get thorough instructions on how to care for the contact lenses. Contact lens re-check visits are important in determining the final prescription. At these visits, the doctor will ensure that the contact lenses are performing optimally for everyday use. Once the contact lenses are re-evaluated and the prescription is confirmed the contact lens prescription is dispensed. A routine contact lens evaluation is required on a yearly basis.
