Total Vision Freedom
How many times should our glasses be knocked off before we can start dreaming of unencumbered vision? Don’t get us wrong; we still appreciate our most fabulous accessories, but sometimes we long for freedom from frames.
Significant advances in contact lens technology have made the transition from glasses easier than ever, and now is the perfect time to give it a try! Even more complicated prescriptions can benefit from contact lenses; allow our team to provide you with a consultation specific to your vision needs.
You want to have your contact lens fitting in a comfortable and knowledgeable environment, and that’s precisely what we offer at Dr. Henslick Vision Center. Let’s work together to find your perfect fit!
Your Contact Lens Exam
A contact lens exam generally takes longer than a standard eye exam. Your optometrist will want to take a few additional measurements, ask a few questions about your lifestyle, and discern what you are looking for in a contact lens.
Your overall eye health is a consideration when determining the perfect contact lens for your vision. Contact lenses sit directly on your eye, and your prescription may need a few adjustments to accommodate this change.
Your Contact Lens Fitting & Trial
The next stop is your contact lens fitting. Your eyes are unique, just like you are, and it can take some time to work out the perfect pair of lenses for your eye shape and lifestyle. Once our team has determined the right fit, you will head home with your first trial pair of contact lenses.
Sometimes it can take more than one pair of trial lenses to find the exact right brand for your eyes. You may need to visit us regularly during the transition period to ensure that your eyes are healthy, well-adjusted, and happy.
Taking Care of Your Contact Lenses
Contact lens care is a different experience from caring for your eyeglasses! Contact lenses last longer with careful handling, and we want to make sure you get the best out of your lenses.
Our optometrists will go over all the care and handling tips for your new lenses before you take them home. Remember to ask questions if you are unsure of the process–we are here to walk you through the details as many times as you need.
Scleral Contact Lenses
Standard lenses don’t work for everyone, and at Dr. Henslick Vision Center, we offer scleral contact lenses for our patients with specialized prescriptions. If you have irregularly shaped corneas or have keratoconus, you may benefit from these types of specialty lenses.
Scleral contact lenses are gas permeable and are designed to dome over the cornea’s surface and rest on the sclera (the whites of your eye). These specialty lenses can help correct vision problems specifically related to corneal irregularities.
Our patients with dry eye disease may also benefit from scleral contact lenses, as the space between the cornea and the back surface of the scleral lens can act as a fluid reservoir. The fluid reservoir can create comfort for those not usually able to wear contact lenses.
If you have questions or are interested in scleral contact lenses, please call us today!
All Clariti 1-Day lenses feature high water content — a key feature for comfort. AquaGen™ technology makes it possible. The AquaGen™ process creates a lens that naturally attracts and binds water molecules to the lens surface, so your eyes can stay moist and comfortable throughout your day.
Proclear by CooperVision are a line of daily-disposable contact lenses with options available for nearly every corrective lens prescription need, including options for astigmatism. They feature Phosphorylcholine, a material that attracts water and encourages healthy eye hydration.
