What to Expect From Your Exam & Fitting

While we’re proud of our unique line of fashionable frames, we also understand there’s more to correcting your vision than just a stylish pair of glasses. Sometimes you need flexibility in your corrective lenses, which is where our contact lens exams and fittings come in to help.

We’ll determine your candidacy for contact lenses during the exam by observing your eye health and looking for any conditions that may affect your ability to wear contacts. These issues can include dry eye, previous eye surgeries, and corneal health problems.

From here, we’ll fit your contacts with the help of modern techniques like corneal topography and anterior segment OCT. These processes analyze your eyes and can help determine the size, shape, and type of contact best suited for your needs. 

Specialty Contacts for Unique Concerns

Contact lenses aren’t just for correcting common refractive errors; they can also help address other concerns that traditional eyeglasses might not.

At Alameda Optometric Group, we offer a few different specialty lenses for such concerns like myopia, dry eye, and keratoconus. We can determine which type of lenses may be best for you or your loved one when you have a contact lens appointment. 

Paragon CRT Contacts

Paragon CRT (corneal refractive therapy) lenses are a unique lens option we may offer to children developing myopia.

These lenses use a technique called orthokeratology to gently reshape your child’s cornea while they sleep at night. Reshaping the cornea can help correct myopia-related vision problems and possibly slow the rate of myopia development as your child grows up.

In the morning, your child can remove the lenses and enjoy clear vision without contacts or eyeglasses throughout the day.

MiSight contact lenses are another myopia control technique that we may offer children.

These daily contact lenses use a technique called peripheral defocusing, which focuses peripheral light just in front of the retina. Focusing peripheral light in this way sends a signal to the eye that helps slow down eye elongation.

If you struggle with dry eye or corneal problems like keratoconus, then scleral contact lenses may be a great way to help you achieve crisp, clear, comfortable vision.

Scleral lenses have a larger diameter than traditional contacts, which allows them to rest on your eye’s sclera (you might know this as the whites of your eyes). Because of its size, the center of the lens can vault over the cornea, avoiding contact with the area while still correcting your vision.

Additionally, the space between the lens and cornea collects fluids as you wear them, which can help alleviate uncomfortable dry eye symptoms.
