Nobody’s eyes are exactly the same. Before you put something into your eye, don’t you want to make sure you’ve got a professional optometrist or optician standing by?  Some conditions make contacts challenging, so you want to make sure you let your optical professional know at any stage of the process.

For example, if you have allergies or dry eyes, you’re probably going to get a different pair of contacts than someone with astigmatism and watery eyes.  Contact lens prescriptions are composed of curve, thickness, and diameter. Your optometrist in Gilbert can show you the right way and the wrong way to put a contact in.  This is especially important with soft lenses as sometimes they can turn inside out.   A contact lens fitting is usually a few steps.

Our Contact Lens Fitting Procedure

Click to Order Your Menicon SolutionsFirst off, you have a comprehensive eye exam.  Before we recommend contacts, your eyes are checked for an eye-health issues. Once that evaluation is completed, the doctor will find the right lens with exactly the right amount of curve, thickness and diameter for the your particular vision needs.

Next, your contact lenses are fitted to your eyes, along with detailed instructions  on how to clean, store, and handle your contact lenses. Then we schedule a follow up visit.  This follow up visit is  important because Dr. Carlsson can see if there is any irritation and it gives him a chance to see how the patient’s eyes are responding to the contacts.

So, what are you waiting for, call (480) 988-4131 or schedule an appointment online today.
