Contact Lens Fitting
contact lenses are in direct contact with the eye,
they need to be fitted to the shape of the eye. Many
factors can affect the type of lens you need to be
fitted for, including purpose, Astigmatism, some
colour, and other eye issues.
use your regular eyeglasses prescription to get
contact lenses. To wear contact lenses, there are
other special measurements that need to be taken. Like
clothing and shoes, contact lenses are not 'one size
fits all'. Also, size can vary depending on the
manufacturer of the lenses.
You can wear
contacts for many vision correction problems, even if
you have had refractive surgery. Because the contour
of the eye has been altered, the contact lens will
need to be fitted again and may require a more
specialized lens than normal.
contact lenses are fitted like normal lenses. Because
of this, it may be possible to see some of the colour
of the lens overlapping the pupil. This can be a
problem for lens wearers who want opaque lenses.
Because opaque lenses have a solid colouring to
completely change the eye colour of the wearer, vision
can be affected and limited when the pupil becomes
larger, such as in dimly lit environments and while
driving at night.
