Unobstructed Vision is Waiting
We love our eyeglasses at Village Optical, but it’s no secret that sometimes they interfere with our day-to-day lives. Let’s put the rose-coloured specs aside for a minute and imagine a life of unobstructed vision: enjoying exercise without foggy lenses; watching a movie without seeing smudges; and walking in the rain without having to wipe water droplets off your lenses.
Making the switch to contact lenses is easier than ever, due to significant advances in contact lens technology. We have also recently upgraded our offerings to ensure more brand variety and competitive pricing for our patients.
Our professional and friendly environment is eye-deal for contact lens exams and fittings. Give us a call, and let’s work together to find a perfect fit for you!
The Contact Lens Exam
Your optometrist considers your overall eye health when determining which lens will be the best fit for you. Your contact lens exam takes a little longer than a standard eye exam.
You can expect a few additional measurements, a few questions about your lifestyle, and some inquiries about what you’re looking for in a lens. Your prescription may need to be changed slightly to accommodate a contact lens, as it sits directly on your eye.
The Contact Lens Fitting & Trial
The contact lens fitting brings you even closer to your freedom from eyeglasses! Everyone’s eyes are unique, and a fitting ensures that we find the perfect pair of lenses for your eye shape. Once our doctors have found the best possible fit, you will receive your first pair of trial contact lenses.
It can take a little while to adjust to your trial lenses, and you may not love the first pair. That’s totally okay! Regular check-ins with Village Optical help with the transition to your new frame-less lifestyle.
Care & Maintenance for Contact Lenses
The care and handling of contact lenses is a little different from your eyeglasses. Your optometrist will provide you with directions that promote the longevity of your lenses.
Our fantastic team is here to make sure your eyes are comfortable and your vision is clear. Don’t be shy: Reach out if you have questions. We would love to set you up with the perfect pair of lenses.
