Contact Lens Exam
Our eye doctors use a contact lens eye exam in order to fit a wide variety of contact lenses on patients of all ages and needs in Charleston. Contact lenses are available in a wide range of prescriptions, and completely personalized to your vision and eye care needs. If you have an astigmatism or need reading glasses, you may also be able to wear contact lenses so that you can finally eliminate the hassle of eye glasses. Our eye care centers in Charleston can help, and it just takes a visit to our OD eye doctor to get started.
If you have an astigmatism, then a toric lense, generally, will be your best option. An astigmatism occurs when the eye is not perfectly round shaped. This requires a different prescription in the vertical and horizontal directions. A toric lens accomplishes this by making the bottom of the lens slightly thicker so the lens can align correctly on the eye.
Needing reading glasses over your contact lenses can be a real inconvenience. Because we are dedicated to your comfort and eye care in Charleston, we offer innovative multifocal lenses in a wide variety of strengths. Working by giving you a different focus in the center of the lens versus the outer edges of the lens, you are able to have perfected vision without glasses.
