Which Contact Lens Is Right for You?

  1. First, your contacts must address the problem that is prompting you to wear lenses in the first place. Your contact lenses must provide good vision by correcting your myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, or some combination of those vision problems.
  2. Second, the lens must fit your eye. To do that, lenses come in tens of thousands of combinations of diameter and curvature. Of course, not every lens brand comes in every “size.”
  3. Your optometrisct is skilled in evaluating your eye’s physiology, and your eyesight, to determine which lens best satisfies the two criteria above.
  4. Third, you may have another medical need that drives the choice of lens. For example, your optometrist might pick a particular lens if your eyes tend to be dry.
  5. Finally, consider your “wish list” of contact lens features — colors, for example, or overnight wear. When you and your optometrist decide on the right lens for you, you’ll be given a contact lens prescription. You’ll be able to buy a supply of lenses from your optometrist.

Very important: Always make sure you discuss and make decisions about your eye care based upon a formal appointment with your optician.
