When it comes to getting contact lenses, there are several important factors, not the least of which is an accurate prescription designed to meet your very specific vision needs. But the way in which they fit is also essential. If that seems like an overstatement, then consider how you feel when you wear a sweater that is itchy or a pair of shoes that are too tight. When that happens, you are not likely to wear those items very often, are you? At Metro Optics, we want you to feel positive about wearing your contact lenses all the time, and that is only likely to happen if they feel good when you have them in your eyes. That’s the basis for our contact lens fittings in Throggs Neck.
With a yearly eye exam at our office, you can be certain that you get a new or updated prescription for contact lenses that will provide you with the sharpest and clearest eyesight that you’re capable of achieving. The way your contacts fit isn’t just about comfort, but also about optimal positioning for maximum optical benefit. When your lenses are not positioned properly, you are missing out on some degree of vision correction. Whether you need single vision contacts, bifocal, or multifocal to address multiple vision issues, we have all the options you need, including a variety to suit your lifestyle and preferences. But first comes our contact lens fittings in Throggs Neck.
Our optometrist will check your corneas, including their curvature, your eyelids, and your conjunctiva, in order to ensure that contact lenses are a good idea for you. If any problems are detected, it may have an effect on whether we recommend contacts for you, or what type you should wear. You will be tested with your choice of lenses in several positions to determine which will maximize your vision correction. Comfort is taken into account, and depending on your individual circumstances, either soft or hard lenses might turn out to be the best for you. But when you leave our store, you will be confident that the contacts you selected are the right ones for you and that they will feel comfortable when you put them in.
