If you are thinking about getting contact lenses for the first time, or your current contact lens prescription has expired, you will want to come to our vision practice, Jerry Wake. Our expert eye doctor in Alondra Park CA, Dr. Jerry S. Wake, will be able to provide you with a complete contact lens exam and fitting.
During our contact lens exam and fitting, your eyes will be screened for their visual acuity. Whether you are found to have astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness, you will be able to have your vision accurately, comfortably, and safely corrected using contact lenses. Today, even if you have dry eyes, you can wear contact lenses which will be comfortable and safe for you to wear. Our eye doctor will also screen your eyes for many different eye diseases and disorders including: cataracts; glaucoma; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; retinal tears; dry eyes; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. When patients wear contact lenses, they are more prone to developing contact lens-related infections in their eyes. This can be very dangerous, if a patient has certain eye diseases. However, most patients are now able to safely wear contact lenses. Our eye doctor in Alondra Park CA will also measure the curvature of your cornea, and the size of your iris to make sure that your new contact lenses will fit your eyes perfectly. If contact lenses do not fit your eyes precisely right, the cornea can become scratched and permanently damaged with continued contact lens wear. Our eye doctor will also let you know which type of contact lens will work best for you, and will talk to you about the different lens styles available to work best with your lifestyle. Today most patients wear soft contact lenses because they are extremely comfortable and easy to get used to.
