When you're ready for contact lenses, a thorough contact lens eye exam is the first step. At Winchester Optical, our eye doctors are dedicated to giving you the finest care and making sure you get the exact pair of contacts that's perfect for your vision and your lifestyle. We offer a wide range of contact lens types, and offer training and guidance for each new contact lens wearer in Winchester. We never let you go home until you're completely comfortable with the care and wearing of your new lenses. From the exam to the final fitting, your comfort is our most important concern.
Contact Lens Eye Exams in Winchester
Eye exams for contact lenses in Winchester begin like any other vision examination. You'll look through a machine called a phoropter toward a familiar poster on the wall. The poster is covered with lines of type, each one smaller in size, that determine how well you can see. As you look through the phoropter, our Winchester eye doctor will switch out pairs of lenses, and you'll decide which of each two produces better vision. In this way, we can know the precise prescription needed for your lenses.
After the vision check, the doctor will measure the size, shape, and depth of curve in your eyeballs. This is to determine the exact size and shape of the contact lenses we give you. Having the right contact lens ensures that the lens fits snugly against your eye, giving you the best possible vision.
Contact Lens Types at Winchester Eye Care
After our doctor has finished with the examination, you'll sit down with him to discuss your lifestyle in order to determine the right type of contact lenses for you. We offer a wide variety of lens types, including daily wear, extended wear, and rigid gas permeable contact lenses. If you have astigmatism or need bifocals, we can make specialty lenses to correct your eyesight. We even offer tinted contact lenses to enhance the natural color of your eye or to change them to a different color entirely.
Fitting Lenses with Your Winchester Optician
Our opticians never hand off contact lenses and just allow you to go home with them. They sit down with each new patient and explain about how to put contacts in, how to safely remove them from your eyes, and the exact cleaning techniques you need to follow to avoid eye infections. We'll coach you through the practice of using your lenses until you're comfortable with the process, and provide you with a starter kit of any cleaning and storing solutions you may need.
