Being able to see clearly is something everyone should consider, whether they have a current or known vision impairment or not. The quality of your eyesight is always subject to change which is why annual eye exams and vision tests are highly recommended for people of all ages. When it comes to correcting vision problems when they are diagnosed, there are plenty of different ways in which you can address the problem, the contact lenses tend to be a growing option in popularity these days. If you happen to have been diagnosed with a vision impairment problem and are interested in contacts, then we here at Chicago Vision Club can certainly provide you with the more that you need to get started.
Even if you have recently gone to the eye doctor and have been told that you have a vision impairment, you will need to have a specific contact lens exam in order to get contact lenses. This is because contact lenses work in a unique way, and there are several aspects of your eye health that an optician will need to check up on in order to make sure that you can wear contacts healthily, safely, and comfortably. Here at Chicago Vision Club one of the first things that our optician will do is conduct an eye exam or they will examine the state of your eyes and look out for any issues that may prevent you from wearing contact lenses in the first place. Certain types of allergies, chronic eye conditions, or even present infections and corneal abrasions may prevent you from wearing contacts so it is absolutely essential that these issues are looked our for and identified beforehand. If all is well, we will also need to check your specific prescription needs in terms of wearing contacts. Even if you already wear glasses, contacts rest directly on the eyes where us at glasses rest some distance away on the bridge of your nose. Things like the curvature of your eye will need to be measured and taken into consideration before determining your contact lens prescription as well as what types of contact lenses may work best for you. Once your contact lens exam in Lincoln Park is complete, we can move onto a contact lens fitting where we can find out exactly what type of contacts are right for you.
We offer high and gas permeable contact lenses as well as multifocal lenses for individuals who are wearing contacts for the first time, but generally these types and brands of contacts will depend on your specific vision needs as well as your own personal preferences. Once your more is over, your contact lens fitting will allow you to sample a variety of different types of lenses for you to choose from. You will also learn how to properly inserts, remove, and to care for your contacts on a daily basis. If you happen to be in the market for contact lenses, then you do not need to look any further than our optical store here at Chicago Vision Club.
