Did you know that an improper fitting or prescription of contact lenses can damage the health of your eyes? It is very important that your Oneida contact lenses are fitted correctly based on your prescription, eye shape, and specific needs. At Allen Eye Associates, we offer a comprehensive array of contact lenses to suit each individual patient’s needs including daily disposables, extended wear soft lenses, and gas permeable contact lenses.
Thanks to the advances in optical technology, almost everyone is a candidate for contact lens use. This includes patients with astigmatism and also those who prefer multifocal lenses. If you wear or want contact lenses, then you will need a contact lens fitting. A routine eye exam is not the same as a contact lens exam. A contact lens exam is necessary to ensure the lenses are fitting both eyes properly and that the health of the eyes are not harmed by the lenses. Our optometrist will perform special tests during the exam to evaluate your vision with contacts. With the results of the tests, our eye doctor can provide a contact lens prescription that is the right fit for your eyes. Then it is time to decide which type of contact lenses are best for you. If you prefer hard or soft, extended wear or daily disposable, require multifocal lenses, or even wish to correct your vision with ortho-k lenses, our vision center will help you find the lenses best suited for your particular prescription, eye shape, and specific needs.
