What Are Contact Lens Fittings?
A fitting is part of a contact lens exam. During this process, your optometrist will measure your corneal curvature, as well as the size of your pupil and iris. These measurements are used to find contacts with the right fit. There are many different types of contacts on the market, including contacts that are shaped for people with astigmatism. If you have specialized needs, you can even order contacts that are customized for your eyes.
Why It's Important to Have Your Contacts Fitted
When you wear poorly-fitting contacts, you may experience pain or discomfort when you wear your lenses. This can make it difficult to wear lenses for long periods. In addition, contact lenses with an improper fit could potentially damage your eyes.
Contact lenses sit directly on your cornea. If the measurements of your contacts aren't right, it could cause issues like corneal abrasions. A bad fit could even impact the effectiveness of your contact lenses, making it harder for you to see clearly. Don't take any chances when it comes to your contacts; have an eye doctor measure your eyes so that you can find lenses that fit.
What to Expect at Your Fitting
During your fitting, your eye doctor will use tools to measure your eyes and identify the shape and curvature of your cornea. Lenses come in different sizes, and with these measurements, you will be able to wear contacts with measurements that fit your eyes.
Once your eyes have been measured, you will have the chance to try on different contact lenses to see how well they fit your eyes. You can also ask your optometrist questions and get more information about wearing contacts. By the end of your appointment, you will have new lenses that you can wear with confidence!
