A Natural Way to See the World

Let’s face it… Glasses can be a pain sometimes. Anyone who has ever stood outside in the rain or watched a 3D movie would agree! 

Most eyeglass-wearers have considered making the switch to contact lenses, and why not? Contact lens technology has made significant strides over the years, and it’s now easier than ever to change things up. 

Come into David W Stemley, OD, Inc. for a thorough contact lens exam. We can help you decide if contact lenses are a good fit. Contact us today for your chance at comfortable and clear vision!

Your Contact Lens Exam 

Your contact lens exam takes a little longer than a standard eye exam, and requires a few extra steps. During the exam, your optometrist takes additional eye measurements and asks a few questions about your lifestyle to ensure your lenses’ fit properly.

Contact lenses sit directly on your eye, which means that your prescription may need a few tweaks to make room for those adjustments. Allergies and your overall eye health will play a factor in determining if contact lenses are the right choice for your vision. 

Your Contact Lens Fitting & Trial

Once our optometrists have completed your contact lens exam, they will need to conduct a fitting to find the best lens fit for your eyes. Everyone’s eyes are incredibly different, and contact lens fittings are essential for ensuring that everyone gets the best pair of contact lenses for their needs. 

Your doctor will work carefully to ensure the most comfortable fit, and the result of this will be your first trial pair of contact lenses! 

It may take a little while to adjust to your new contact lenses, but we recommend regular check-ups to make sure the transition is going well. 

Caring for Your New Contact Lenses 

Never fear! Your team at David W Stemley, OD, Inc. will make sure that you head home with the proper care instructions for your new contact lenses. 

Care and handling of your lenses is a different experience than caring for eyeglasses, and we are here to answer any questions. Proper care will significantly lengthen your lenses’ life, so please make sure to follow the steps carefully.
