Establishing a Good Contact Lens Fit at Ultimate Eyecare Santa Fe
We offer a wide selection of contact lenses including disposable soft contact, bifocal/multifocal, toric, and colored lenses. Whether you wear daily, weekly or monthly disposables, or conventional (vial) lenses, check out our selection of lenses that fit your needs. A good contact lens fit starts with a thorough evaluation to ensure the most up-to-date prescription and rule out any pre-existing conditions that could interfere with contact lens wear.
We will determine the best fitting lens based on your lifestyle needs, the shape, and the health of your eye. In most cases, you'll have the opportunity to try lenses on the same day as your contact lens evaluation. You can even go home with a few samples before making a final decision.
We follow up on the initial fitting and then make any necessary changes in fit or materials to get you the best possible fit. We teach all our patients proper contact lens care and also possible consequences if proper care is not taken. Then we continue with long-term follow-up to monitor the condition of the lenses and to ensure that proper hygiene is being maintained.
Why do I have to have this evaluation every year?
Contact lenses are determined by the FDA to be a medical device. Like all prescription devices and medications, contacts must be monitored on a regular basis. The doctor assesses your eyes to ensure that the contact lenses are not causing your eyes to become unhealthy and also that your vision with contacts is stable.
