Can You Wear Contact Lenses?
Everything we do at Higgins Brothers Vision Care supports your vision and quality of life. Because of this commitment, we need to ensure your contacts fit your needs and lifestyle.
While contact lenses are more accessible than ever, some issues could prevent you from wearing contact lenses comfortably. We follow a detailed contact lens exam process using modern fitting and diagnostic technology to address potential concerns and find contact lenses right for you.
Enjoy an experience that combines compassion with comprehensive, health-focused care when you visit our team.
Our Comprehensive Process
Eye exams are the first step towards getting a pair of contact lenses.
We’ll examine your eyes for a variety of issues that may affect the type of lens you wear or if you can wear contact lenses at all. We may not recommend contact lenses depending on your eye health, but we’ll be more than happy to determine your candidacy for other options like glasses or laser eye surgery.
During the fitting process, we’ll measure the size and shape of your eyes to determine what type of contact lens would be best for you.
We use a state-of-the-art keratometer to measure the curvature of your cornea, which could help us determine if you need a specialty contact like scleral lenses.
Once we determine the right contact lens for you, it’s time to try them on.
We may recommend wearing a trial pair of contacts for a short time. We’ll book a follow-up appointment at the end of your trial period to ensure your eyes are adjusting appropriately and provide a supply of your contact lenses.
If your contacts cause any irritation or discomfort, please remove them and contact our team as soon as you can.
Specialty Contact Lenses
Keratoconus is an eye condition that thins your cornea over time, causing it to bulge outwards. This condition can make wearing traditional contact lenses uncomfortable, but scleral lenses can help address this issue.
Scleral lenses are larger than traditional contact lenses. They rest on the sclera (whites) of your eyes and dome over the cornea, providing you with clear, comfortable vision without affecting your cornea.
Orthokeratology (ortho-k) contacts lenses are one of the many ways we can manage myopia progression in children.
Your child wears ortho-k contacts overnight. During this time, the lenses gently reshape the cornea to correct their vision. When they wake up, your child can enjoy clear vision without contacts or glasses while also slowing their myopia progression at the same time!
Learn more about our myopia strategies on our Myopia Control page.
