Gilbert Arizona Contact Lens Services
In today’s day and age, there is a contact lens for everyone! The development of modern materials and new engineering led to a wide array of contact lens types on the market. As a result, many people who couldn’t wear lenses in the past can now do so comfortably.
Our qualified and compassionate eye doctor, Dr. Paul Woolf, will work with you to find the perfect pair of contact lenses for your eyes and vision. We will also provide you with clear instructions on how to care for your lenses, which will protect your eyes and keep your vision safe. To meet with Dr. Woolf, please schedule your contact lens eye exam and fitting in our office in Gilbert, AZ.
Contact Lens Eye Exams & Fittings
Contacts need to give you sharp vision and preserve your long-lasting eye health. Our optometrist will perform a detailed eye exam to detect or rule out any pre-existing conditions that could get in the way of wearing contact lenses. We will also check your visual acuity thoroughly to ensure that your vision prescription is accurate. Our Gilbert eye care clinic is equipped with cutting-edge technology, so you can depend upon precise diagnoses and measurements for your contact lenses. If you are determined to have a hard-to-fit vision condition, Dr. Woolf will take the time to identify the ideal contacts for clear and comfortable vision.
Once you head home with your new lenses, we will recommend a personalized schedule for follow-up exams to check the condition of your lenses and the health of your eyes.
Types of Contacts
We stock our office with an extensive selection of contact lens types to meet the visual needs of as many Gilbert, AZ, patients as possible! Each type of lens has its own set of unique features.
Soft Contact Lenses
These are the most widely worn lenses in the United States. They are typically comfortably almost immediately after insertion, and they are suitable for many ocular conditions and vision prescriptions. Soft contacts come in daily wear, disposable, and extended wear versions.
Constructed from a flexible material that conforms easily to your eyeball, soft contacts fit snugly on your eyes – even if you are very active!
Rigid, Gas Permeable Lenses (GP)
Nowadays, hard contact lenses are much more comfortable (after a short adaptation period) than they were years ago. When soft lenses don’t provide crisp or comfortable vision, hard lenses are often a great alternative for our patients in Gilbert, AZ. These lenses boast a high oxygen permeability, which lowers the risk of eye infections. If you care for them properly, hard lenses can last a few years.
If you have a complex vision condition, such as keratoconus, astigmatism or presbyopia, you will need specialty contact lenses. Dr. Woolf will consider your individual condition and vision requirements to determine the optimal specialty lenses, which could be toric, hybrid, bifocal/multifocal, or scleral lenses.
