The Contact Lens Service evaluates and fits patients of all ages using the latest in contact lens technology and information, often before it has even been introduced in the general eye practitioner's office. The Directors of the service are national leaders in the contact lens field and participate in major national studies on advances in contact lenses.
Contact lenses are alternatives to Eyeglasses which offer great relief to the people with refractive error defects. Contact lenses are hassle free and offer crystal clear vision. Best Vision’s experienced optometrists evaluate and provide lenses for correcting refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Best Vision has collaborated with Pinnacle optical Pvt Ltd to offer quality optical services to the patients. Best Vision has an advanced fitting and processing lab with trained optometrists to cater to patient’s needs.
Soft Contact Lenses are available as spherical and toric lenses. Soft Contact lenses can be used for correcting refractive errors such as myopia and hyperopia. Soft lenses can be categorized as standard contact lenses, disposable contact lenses, and bifocal contact lenses.
Semi-Soft Contact Lenses are employed when a person is allergic to soft lenses and in correcting astigmatism. These lenses are specially designed to match the patient’s corneal contour. Semi-soft contact lenses can be categorized as Rose k lenses, scleral lenses, and kerasoft lenses.
Hard Contact Lenses (RGP Lenses) are the lenses used for correcting refractive errors. Hard contact lenses provide crystal clear vision and can correct corneal astigmatism. Hard contact lenses allow more oxygen to pass through the eyes leading to better eye functions.
Millions of people choose to wear contact lenses. However, they are not for everyone.
You might not be able to wear them for the following reasons:
To safely wear contact lenses, you must be committed to caring for them properly and replacing them when needed. Talk with your ophthalmologist or other eye care professional to discuss your vision needs and expectations.
Just like one shoe size doesn’t fit all, one contact lens size doesn’t fit all. If the curvature of a contact lens is too flat or too steep for your eye’s shape, you could experience discomfort or even eye damage. Because of this, the contact lens exam includes elements besides those of the 10 Point Comprehensive Examination. Additional portions of a contact lens fitting may include:
Measurement of your eye’s surface and curvature: An instrument called a keratometer will be used to measure the curvature of your eye’s clear front surface (cornea). These measurements help the doctor determine the proper curve and size for your contact lenses.
Tear film evaluation: Contact lens fittings may also include a tear film evaluation. Your eye’s moisture content may be evaluated by placing fluorescein dye in your eye through eye drops, and then evaluating how long it takes for the dye to be washed away by your eye’s tears. If your eyes don’t produce enough moisture and you have severe dry eye, contact lenses may not be right for you. Additionally, certain contact lenses such as those made of silicone hydrogel material may work better for eyes that are dry.
Evaluation of your eye’s surface and contact lens fit: The health of your cornea will also be evaluated using a biomicroscope. This lighted instrument with magnification will provide detailed information about your eye’s surface as a baseline for the doctor to evaluate any future changes to your eyes related to contact lens wear. The biomicroscope can also be used to evaluate the fit of a diagnostic pair of lenses, because it allows the doctor to observe alignment of the lens as it rests on the surface of your eye and how much the lens moves after each blink to make sure that the fit is correct.Contact Us Now
