Contact lenses give you that smooth, natural profile that people with perfect vision love to show off. Contact lenses take some getting used to, but once you take to them you can enjoy comfort and convenience. However, since you have to insert them and clean them, they require good fit and high-quality materials. Are you wearing a pair that fits your eye perfectly?
Our optometrists at Eyes on Chagrin are experts in determining the best fit and candidacy for long-term contact lens wear. With a contact lens exam and fitting, learn what your prescription is and how to handle your new contact lenses with a contact lens exam and fitting.
There are many websites available where you can enter your prescription information and get contacts in the mail. But that leaves a lot to chance. Your prescription only paints a fragment of the picture. Because of that, many patients give up on contacts because they’re missing the right expertise to find the perfect fit.
While the odd patient might not benefit from conventional contact lenses, we find that most just need to identify the right product from the right brand. The Eyes on Chagrin team leverages our talent for finding personalized fit during a complete examination and full corneal inspection.
Our single-vision daily, weekly, and monthly contact lenses serve most patients well, but some need special lenses. We carry a variety of specialty contact lenses so that you can enjoy a comfortable fit no matter what. Whatever your curvature, diameter, or health concerns, we’ve likely got something on hand that can help.
For patients affected by astigmatism, conventional, single-vision contact lenses aren’t enough. But toric contact lenses with corrective powers, corresponding to the unique shape of your eye, cancel blurry vision and typical eye strain. The design of toric lenses from trusted brands allows them to spin into place on your cornea.
A bumpy and unusual corneal shape — effectively causing your unique refractive error — gets corrected when your new toric lenses spin and settle into place. They’re designed so that a visible starting point of the contact lens weighs anchor on your cornea in precise alignment with your astigmatism.
Every astigmatism needs a professional’s hand and eye when correcting it, and we match tailored toric contact lenses to your cornea at each contact lens fitting.
Presbyopia working in concert with myopia makes things like watching the road while driving and reading particularly hard to switch between. Fortunately, progressive glasses afford seamless focal transitions for your eyes as they attempt to view objects through different corrective zones. But the switch between prescriptive strengths means presbyopia patients can’t benefit from single-vision contact lenses.
Bifocal contact lenses can balance far and close vision just as bifocal glasses can. But these contact lenses come with a challenging side-effect called “image-jump” when focusing light and images into the back of your eye. Research and development on contact lenses from leading brands has resulted in multifocal contact lenses that iron out the “image jumps” common to bifocals.
A patient dealing with presbyopia needs a comfortable correction, and we fit your multifocal contact lenses with care at each contact lens fitting.
The Eyes on Chagrin team can guide you to the perfect contact lens fit through competent examination, prescription, and corneal fitting. Please book a contact lens fitting, and we’ll work carefully in a contact lens exam factoring everything about your eye we can see.
As we grow older, we lose the ability to focus on up-close objects, especially at night. This condition is known as presbyopia and begins around age 40. Balanced Progressive™ technology allows users of Cooper’s multifocal lenses to focus with ease and provides long-lasting, 30-day comfort.
All Clariti 1-Day lenses feature high water content — a key feature for comfort. AquaGen™ technology makes it possible. The AquaGen™ process creates a lens that naturally attracts and binds water molecules to the lens surface, so your eyes can stay moist and comfortable throughout your day.
