If your contact lens prescription is near its expiration date, or you are thinking about getting contact lenses for the first time, you will definitely want to visit us at Chicago My Optical. At our vision practice, will meet with one of our top-notch optometrists to get Park Ridge contact lenses; our two expert optometrists are Dr. Young Kim and Dr. Kristin Colonna.
It is very important that contact lenses fit your eyes precisely right. If this does not occur, the cornea of your eyes can actually be damaged by improperly fitting lenses. This is one reason why patients need to have contact lens prescriptions in order to purchase contact lenses. When patients come to our vision practice to get a prescription for Park Ridge contact lenses, they will have a complete contact lens exam and fitting. During the first part of the exam your eyes will have their visual acuity determined. If you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism you will be able to wear contact lenses. Today just about anyone can wear contact lenses, even patients who have dry eye problems, prefer multifocal lenses, or are pre-teens or teens. Your eyes will also be screened for all different types of eye diseases and disorders including: glaucoma; macular degeneration; cataracts; diabetic retinopathy; dry eyes; and other problems of cornea, macula, and retina. Our eye doctor will also take measurements of the curvature of your cornea and the size of your iris in order to make sure that your contact lenses will fit you perfectly. Our eye doctor will then discuss with you which type of contact lenses will work best for you with your particular vision needs. You will even be able to conveniently purchase your contact lenses from our vision practice, once the exam is complete.
