Are You a Good Candidate for Contact Lenses?
More than a simple inconvenience, having blurry vision can be troublesome and even unsafe, especially for those whose jobs involve driving or operating machinery. If your eyesight has become blurry, contact lenses can be the solution that helps you regain your clear vision.
Today, more people than ever are able to wear contact lenses comfortably. With contact lenses, people who live and active lifestyle or play sports are able to meet their visual needs in life. Still, this does not mean that everyone is a good candidate for this type of eyewear. People who have misshapen corneas, certain eye problems, or had previous surgeries in the eye may not be qualified to wear contact lenses.
Identifying Your Contact Lens Eligibility
Your optometrist can help you determine if you are a good candidate for contact lenses. During your eye exam, your optometrist will measure your eye focus and identify whether you are nearsighted, farsighted, have astigmatism, or some other eye condition. In addition to identifying your refractive error, your optometrist will proceed to review your medical and family history, evaluating relevant factors such as lifestyle, allergies, and overall eye health. Later, the optometrist will map your cornea using a corneal topographer to reveal the curvature of your eye. This informs your optometrist if contact lenses will fit properly.
