Get Your Eyes Ready for Contact Lenses

Managing Your Visual Needs

Contact lenses offer vision correction similar to your glasses—they can correct refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), presbyopia, and astigmatism.

During your contact lens exam, our team will test your visual acuity to determine how well you see letters and symbols from a distance. We will also review your lifestyle needs and preferences to determine what lenses will benefit you most.

At Oxford Optometry, we prioritize the patient experience. Our team strives to ensure our patients’ new contact lenses fit precisely and meet their vision correction needs.

Types of Contact Lenses

Contact lenses fall under 2 main categories, soft contact lenses and rigid gas permeable (RGP).

Soft contact lenses are made of malleable plastic polymers. These lenses are very flexible and, when appropriately fitted by our team, form to the cornea.

RGP lenses are more durable than soft contact lenses and have an easier care system. RGP lenses offer the advantage of allowing more oxygen to pass through to the eye.

These 2 categories of lenses include other specialty options that are used to correct various vision problems.

Scleral Contact Lenses

Scleral contact lenses can be an excellent option for patients who cannot wear contacts due to vision conditions such as dry eye syndrome and keratoconus.

Scleral lenses are bigger than traditional contacts and rest on the sclera or white of your eyes. These lenses work by allowing extra space over your cornea’s surface for extra breathability.

Orthokeratology or ortho-k lenses are a great option for most patients with mild to moderate myopia or hyperopia.

These lenses are designed to reduce the dependence on contact lenses or glasses throughout the day. Ortho-K lenses are inserted at night before bed and remain in while you sleep. The lenses are then removed in the morning, allowing for clear vision throughout the day.

At Oxford Optometry, we also offer CRT lenses. CRT uses a similar process as ortho-k lenses, and they fall under the orthokeratology umbrella.

Our team can help determine the best vision correction method for your unique visual needs.

The Fitting Process

The contact lens fitting process is important to determine the comfort and vision correction levels of your new contact lenses. 

We begin the fitting process by assessing the health of your cornea with a comprehensive check-up to ensure you can wear contact lenses without issue or discomfort. Following testing, our team will fit you with trial contact lenses and schedule follow-up appointments to confirm how your eyes are reacting to new contact lenses.

At Oxford Optometry, your comfort and safety are the priority, so we take every step to ensure you have the right fit for your contact lenses.
