Contact Lens Eye Care With Our Clarksville Optometrist
Tired of glasses? Contact lenses are a comfortable, safe option. Our Clarksville optometry center, Sites Vision Clinic, has an experienced team who will help you find contacts that are a great fit for your eyes.
There are two main types of contact lenses: hard and soft. Soft contact lenses are made from a gel-like plastic that most people cannot feel once it is placed on the eye's surface. Many people prefer soft contact lenses due to their immediate comfort level. The most popular type of soft contact lenses is known as silicone hydrogels. Hard contact lenses are rigid, and they often provide sharper vision than hydrogel/soft lenses. Hard lenses are often used for people who have astigmatism. While the eyes do take time to adjust to hard contact lenses, most people find them just as comfortable as soft contact lenses over time.
Our office stocks a number of different types of lenses, including disposable, conventional, multifocal, toric, tinted, spherical, and extended wear. We also provide hard to fit contacts and specialty contacts. We keep a variety of contact lens brands in stock in our office, including Acuvue, Air Optix, Bifonity, Ciba, Cooper Vision, Freshlook, Night & Day, Oasys, Proclear, and Vistakon. It's important for us to have the best lenses at our disposal in the office so that our customers do not have to wait for them to be ordered and shipped.
What To Expect At Your Fitting
Ready for contacts? Great! At your contact lens appointment, we'll do a regular eye exam to determine your prescription. Then, our optometrist will measure the surface of your eyes using a special device (don't worry- it doesn't touch your eye, and it doesn't hurt). We'll also talk with you about any visual conditions you experience (such as dry eye or computer vision) to help us determine which brand of contact lenses will be a good choice for you. Then, we'll try out a few different brands and sizes of lenses to see what feels most comfortable in your eye. When your fitting is complete, you'll be seeing clearly, and it's likely that you will not be able to feel the lenses in your eyes at all.
