Being able to see comfortably and clearly is important for many people. Being able to do this allows us to go about our daily routines comfortably as well as safely. Perfect vision is not just a convenience for many, but also a necessity. For many patients with vision impairment, glasses are the traditional option for vision correction, but contact lenses are available as well. Contact lenses may be a more attractive option for some patients, but you will need a thorough contact lens exam before acquiring a pair. We here at Lens Lab Express can provide patients with a comprehensive contact lens exam and fitting right here in Jamaica.
Getting contacts is not as simple as some may think. If you already wear glasses and know your glasses prescription, you cannot simply take this prescription and apply it to a pair of contact lenses. Contact lenses and glasses both aim to make up for discrepancies in the
shape of the eye’s cornea, but each device works differently than the other. Glasses rest on the bridge of the nose whereas contacts rest directly over the cornea itself. Because of this, glasses and contact lenses require different prescriptions. Here at Lens Lab Express in Jamaica, our eye care specialists can provide you with a comprehensive contact lens exam. Not only do we aim to find the contact lens prescription strength suitable for your eyes, but we can also determine whether your eyes are suitable to wearing contacts in the first place. A thorough exam will help determine which types and brands of contact lenses work best with your eyes and your eye type. If you have any eye irritations or allergies, it may affect whether you can wear contacts or not. Additionally, a contact lens fitting will help teach you how to insert, remove and maintain your contact lenses safely and securely.
If you are interested in trying out contact lenses but have never had a contact lens exam or contact lens fitting, then feel free to call us here at Lens Lab Express. Here at our offices in Jamaica, Queens we can provide you with the eye exams you need as well as the glasses or contacts you need to see well every day.
