Contact Lenses in Glendale

Are you thinking about getting contact lenses for the first time? Or, do you already wear contact lenses but your contact lens prescription has expired? In either case you will want an appointment to visit our optometrist at Vision World of Ridgewood. At our eye care practice you will be able to have a comprehensive contact lens exam and fitting which will make ensure that your eyes are healthy and have no hidden diseases or disorders. At this exam, you will also be able to get a new lens prescription for contact lenses in Glendale that will provide you with clear and crisp vision, even if you have astigmatism; our optometrist will also determine which are the best type and brand of contact lenses to fit your eye needs.

As part of our vision exam, our optometrist will check for any refractive errors in your vision. If it is determined that you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, our eye doctor will be able to write an accurate contact lens prescription for you. It used to be that patients with astigmatism could not really wear contact lenses comfortably. Either they had to get hard contact lenses, or the contact lenses would not consistently provide proper focus while in their eyes. Today lenses for astigmatism are vastly improved and are comfortably providing excellent vision corrections for our patients. Patients with astigmatism can even get soft contact lenses which are extremely comfortable and easy to get used to. Soft contact lenses in Glendale come in a variety of different types including: disposable lenses; daily wear lenses; extended wear lenses; and color changing lenses that make it appear as though the color of your eyes have changed.

During our contact lens exam and fitting our optometrist will also measure the curvature of your cornea and the size of your iris. This fitting information is an important part of your contact lens prescription. If contact lenses do not properly fit your eyes well, they can actually cause damage to the cornea if they are worn consistently. For this reason you never want to borrow contact lenses from a friend, or let a friend wear your contact lenses. While contact lenses may all look the same, this sizing information is very important and personalized for each individual. There are also many different types of contact lens brands that offer different benefits for the wearer. If you would like to meet with our expert and highly trained optometrist to get new contact lenses in Glendale, contact us today.
