One of the most exciting situations we experience at our Cornelius, NC area office is introducing contact lenses to a new patient.
Whether you are 5 years old or 95 years old, at Vision Center of Lake Norman, our practice strives to make sure that every patient has an opportunity to wear contact lenses. If you’ve had PRK, RK, or LASIK, we have contact lens options for you. If you have dry eyes, astigmatism, or bifocals, we have contact lens options for you. If you want to wear your lenses for 30 days straight, or wear lenses for just one day and then throw them away, we have contact lens options for you.
One of the most exciting situations we experience at our office is introducing contact lenses to a new patient. We recommend considering the prospect of wearing contact lenses if you are looking for a glasses-free option and greater vision freedom.
Caring for Your Contact Lenses at Every Age
As a contact lens wearer, you enjoy the convenience contact lenses offer. However, you need to make sure you’re protecting the health of your eyes by caring for your lenses properly. Here are some basic guidelines to follow:
- Always wash your hands with soap before handling your contact lenses.
- If you plan to use hairspray, do so before you put your contact lenses in for the day.
- Put in your contact lenses before you put on eye makeup.
- Always use a disinfecting cleanser when you store your contact lenses for the night.
- Replace your contact lenses as recommended, and do not wear the same pair for too long.
- Clean your lens case every time you use it.
Our stress-free process helps you get used to taking your contacts in and out, while also helping you feel comfortable wearing your new lenses. We begin this process with a comprehensive eye exam, so we are able to find the most accurate prescription for your eyes and your lifestyle. During this part of the process, we will introduce you to all of your contact lens options, so you feel confident in your choice.
If you’re nervous about using and wearing contact lenses for the first time, just remember that 99% of new wearers walk out of our office the very same day wearing their lenses. To schedule your contact lens fitting with our office in the Cornelius, North Carolina area, give us a call today.
