If you have a vision impairment of any kind, then chances are you know how important it is that you schedule routine eye exams and vision screenings. Doing so will help keep tabs on your general eye health while it also helps to make sure that your vision needs are in check. With all of the vision correction tools out there, it may be difficult navigating all of your options, especially when it comes to contact lenses. We here at Chicago Vision Club can help. With a comprehensive contact lens exam in Lake View, you can know exactly what kind of contact lenses you need whether they be high or gas-permeable contact lenses, multifocals or any other type.
If you already wear contact lenses, you may want to switch to a new type or brand because your needs have changed or because you find the ones that you are using now to be inadequate. This can be for many different reasons, such as suddenly wanting to switch to dailies or even colored contacts. But if you are a first-time wearer, then you will need a comprehensive contact lens exam in Lake View before moving forward. Here at Chicago Vision Club, one of our expert eye doctors will be able to conduct the procedure wherein we will find out whether your eyes are healthy enough for contacts, what your prescription needs are and what sort of contact lenses may work the best for you. Depending on your individual eye health, vision needs and various other factors, some kinds of contact lenses may be better suited for you. High and gas-permeable contact lenses are rigid lenses made of a durable plastic that allows for the transmission of oxygen. This type of lens is better for your eye health and allows for better ease of comfort, but you will need to get used to wearing them first. If you have different vision needs, such as requiring lenses with multiple magifications for close quarters, distances and anywhere in between, then multifocal lenses are the way to go.
If you have any questions regarding the lenses we carry here at Chicago Vision Club, call us and schedule your first contact lens exam in Lake View. One of our eye doctors will meet with you and help you explore all of your contact lens options.
