Brandon Eye Shop
If you are thinking about getting contact lenses for the first time, or your contact lens prescription has expired, you should visit our store, Optical Outlets for a contact lens exam and fitting. At our eye shop near Brandon, our expert optometrist can examine your eyes and provide you with just the right contact lens prescription for your next pair of contacts.
It is important that contact lenses Fitch your eyes precisely or they can cause problems for the cornea in terms of scratches and irritation. Should this occur over an extended period of time, your cornea can become permanently damaged. This is why it is so important that contact lenses fit your eyes precisely. As part of your contact lens exam, the curve of your cornea will be measured as well as the size of your iris to ensure proper fit. During our contact lens exam and fitting your eyes will also be thoroughly screened for many different eye diseases and disorders. Among the diseases your eyes will be screened for are: cataracts; macular degeneration; glaucoma; diabetic retinopathy; retinal tears; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina.
During the contact lens exam, your eyes will also be screened for their visual acuity. If you have astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness, or some combination of these refractive errors, you can have your vision corrected using contact lenses. If you have astigmatism you will most likely be prescribed toric contact lenses which have been developed specifically for patients with this refractive error. Additionally, if you have dry eye, there are now also many different types of contact lenses which can comfortably and safely be worn by patients with dry eye. After your eye exam you can also purchase your contact lenses at our eye shop near Brandon.
