Get the Right Lenses For Your Eyes

Our eyes are as unique as our fingerprints, so contact lenses can’t be approached with a one-size-fits-all attitude. To ensure you get the right pair of contact lenses for your eyes, the contact lens process at Vision Source D.C. Focus Eyecare Center includes an exam, a fitting, and a trial period.

The Contact Lens Exam & Fitting

During your exam, your optometrist will ensure your medical history is up to date, and address any questions or concerns you may have.

To find the perfect contact lenses for you, we need to start by examining your eyes. The exam ensures that you don’t have any eye conditions or other issues that might prevent you from wearing contact lenses.

Once we have determined that your eyes are suitable for contact lenses, we will calculate your contact lens prescription and then begin your fitting.

Please note that your contact lens prescription isn’t the same as your eyeglass prescription.

Contact lenses are available in a wide selection of styles, sizes, and shapes, each with their own benefits. The contact lens fitting allows your optometrist to select contact lenses that are right for you, based on your cornea’s size and shape, and ensure the contact lenses we prescribe offer you clear and comfortable vision.

To ensure your measurements are accurate, we use a variety of advanced diagnostic techniques.

Once we have determined the best shape, size, and style of contact lens for you, we’ll send you home with a trial pair in your prescription. The trial period allows your eyes to adjust to wearing contact lenses, and ensure that your vision is both clear and comfortable.

We’ll also schedule a follow-up appointment with you so we can ensure you’re happy with your new contact lenses.

If you’re satisfied with your new contact lenses, we will provide you with a copy of your prescription and order you a supply. If your new contact lenses aren’t quite right, we’ll work with you to try different brands, styles, and powers until we find the right fit for you.

Specialty Contact Lenses Available

Some eyes require specialized contact lenses, which is why Vision Source D.C. Focus Eyecare Center offers several varieties of specialized contact lenses to suit your needs.

Toric contact lenses are specifically designed for patients with astigmatism. While standard, spherical contact lenses feature only one prescription, toric lenses are made with different prescriptions along their vertical and horizontal axes.

Since toric lenses need to remain rotationally stable to provide clear vision, they feature a weighted portion at the bottom part of the lens. This weight acts as an anchor, keeping the lens from rotating throughout the day.

Multifocal contact lenses, like multifocal glasses, are designed for patients with presbyopia. Presbyopia is a refractive error that affects our near vision and typically develops as we age.

Multifocal contact lenses feature two or more prescriptions, allowing you to easily and smoothly shift your gaze from distant objects to near objects, and vice versa. Multifocal lenses can be either concentric (made using rings that alternate between your near and distance prescriptions) or aspheric (where one prescription transitions seamlessly into the next).
