Most patients can wear traditional, standard types of soft contacts. However, not everyone can wear those. Many patients have eyes that are harder to fit with contacts. To see an optometrist for your contact lenses, call our optometry center in Amarillo, Canyon, Dumas, or Hereford, TX, to make your appointment at Advanced Eye Care.
What Is a Contact Lens Exam?
If you need hard-to-fit contacts, our optometrist will be able to tell which type you need and which would work best for your specific eyes. Based on measurements of your eyes, our eye doctor will tell you the type of lenses that suits you best. Then, you can try them on to make sure that they fit well for you and correct your vision as much as possible.
Why Are There Abnormal Eye Shapes?
The curvature of your unique eyes needs to be measured so that the optometrist can tell that you need specialty contact lenses and which type they should be. Eyes can end up with an abnormal curve if there has been an eye injury or you have had eye surgeries in the past. Several eye conditions can cause this. If you have dry eyes, presbyopia, keratoconus, or astigmatism, you likely have an abnormal eye shape.
