If you already wear glasses for vision correction, then you’re already well-acquainted with the process of making sure your frames sit on your face in just the right way. You probably also understand why it’s so important to get a good fit. Not only is it a pain to be pushing your glasses back up on your nose over and over again throughout the day, but it’s also crucial that the light passing through your glasses is bent (or, in the jargon of your Spring Valley eye doctor, “refracted”) in such a way that compensates for the mis-bending of light by your cornea that’s responsible for your vision impairment. Though they are frameless, achieving a good fit is every bit as important when it comes to contact lenses. This is why Romy Park, OD, goes to great lengths to match patients’ eyes to the proper contacts.
When you come in to the Spring Valley eye doctor practice of Romy Park, OD, and request contact lenses, there will be some tests you may not have undergone in the past. In addition to the standard tests for glaucoma, color blindness, nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, Dr. Park will also look closely at the fronts of your eyes to make sure your corneas aren’t injured and to make sure that your have a healthy layer of tears over your eyes. Dr. Park will also measure your eyes’ curvature, ask you about your lifestyle and see if you have any allergies that could be exacerbated by having contacts.
