If you are thinking about getting contact lenses for the first time, or your contact lens prescription is expiring, you should come to our vision practice, Romy Park, OD. At our eye shop Spring Las Vegas, you can get a contact lens exam and fitting from our expert optometrists, Dr. Romy Park, for one, as well as purchase your new contact lenses or eyeglasses.
In order to get new contact lenses, you need to have a current contact lens prescription. However, you can get an up-to-date contact lens prescription when you come to our eye shop Spring Las Vegas for a contact lens exam and fitting. During this exam, your eyes will be tested for their visual acuity, your eyes will be screened for many eye diseases and disorders, and your eyes will be measured to make sure that your new contact lenses fit your eyes precisely. Is very important that your new contact lenses fit your eyes just right because the cornea of the eye can actually become permanently damaged if you wear contact lenses which do not fit your eyes properly. If our eye doctor finds that you have nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, you can now have your vision corrected with contact lenses. Toric contact lenses are specially made so that patients with astigmatism can see clearly with this type of lens. Even if you have dry eye, there are now contact lenses made of certain materials which are safe for you to wear, and which will be comfortable to wear, as well. As part of your contact lens exam, your eyes will be thoroughly screened for many different eye diseases and disorders including: dry eyes; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; retinal tears; cataracts; glaucoma; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. Our eye doctor will also talk to you about how to properly handle and insert your contact lenses, especially if you are a first-time contact lens wear.
