The contact lens fitting process at Island Eyecare begins with the optometrist choosing an initial lens based on the patient’s prescription, eye shape, and expected wear time. The fit of a contact lens is then inspected to make sure that the lens is not inhibiting oxygen from reaching the eye. The fitting process is completed after ensuring that the lens of choice is not only healthy for the eye, but also that the patient is entirely satisfied with the comfort and vision provided by the contact lens.
At Island Eyecare, we provide specialty contact lens fittings to those who require it. These include fitting multifocal contact lenses which have multiple prescriptions to correct distance vision, intermediate vision, and near vision all in one contact lens. As well, rigid gas permeable lenses can be fit to improve vision for patients with various eye diseases such as keratoconus.
