Today, due to the great improvements in contact lenses, just about anyone can wear contact lenses to have their vision corrected. Many patients come to see us at EyeCare Associates of San Bernardino to meet with our expert optometrist, Dr. Mike Morton, so that they can have a contact lens exam and fitting. After this exam at our Highland eye shop, patients can purchase many the exact contact lenses that they need at our vision practice.
As part of your contact lens exam and fitting, our optometrist will let you know exactly which type of contact lens will work best for you to correct your vision. Today even patients with astigmatism or dry eye can have their vision perfectly, comfortably, and safely corrected with contact lenses. Contact lenses are also more comfortable than ever before. So if you tried wearing contact lenses several years back, and were not happy with the results, you may want to consider getting contact lenses again. People enjoy wearing contact lenses because they are extremely comfortable, and also are able to provide optimal vision correction, without the field of vision limitations imposed by wearing eyeglasses. After your contact lens exam, you will be able to purchase your contact lenses at our Highland eye shop. At our optical store we offer both soft and rigid gas permeable lenses – also known as hard contacts. Soft lenses come in many different styles to work with many different lifestyles including: lenses for daily wear use which are worn for approximately 12 hours and then are removed for cleaning; lenses for extended wear which can be worn for many days without being removed; disposable lenses that are worn once and then thrown out; and contact lenses that make it appear as though your eye color has changed.
