Hard to Fit Contacts

Oftentimes, hard to fit contacts are simply a byproduct of various factors concerning the shape of the eye. One of the most common causes of contacts being difficult to place into your eye is astigmatism. This condition shapes the eye differently, taking away the curve at the cornea. This can make it difficult for contacts to fit into the eye properly. Other problems may include the fact that all eyes are shaped differently and should be tailored properly for optimal results.

Dry eyes are another common issue. Moisture is needed to create a suction action for the contact lenses. Without this moisture, the contact lenses will have a hard time "sticking" to the eye. Fortunately, there are always solutions available from your local optometrist that will help you find the right fit for your eyes to improve your vision.

How Your Optometrist Can Help You Find the Right Pair

As mentioned before, the eye can be warped and shaped differently based on a multitude of various factors. Your optometrist can order eyeglasses and contact lenses based upon the measurements of your eyes. A proper eye exam will be able to determine if you have astigmatism, dry eyes, or more and order the best pairs possible to fit your eyes. One-size-fits-all is virtually nonexistent when it comes to contact lenses and eyeglasses and your optometrist will be able to set you up with a pair that will help you enhance your vision in no time. 

Contact Lens Exam Process

Here are the basic steps to the contact lens exam process.

  1. Standard Eye Exam. Your optometrist will do a thorough eye exam and look for any physical detriments to the eye. You will be asked to do a basic vision test during this time too.
  2. Contact Lens Preferences. Your doctor will ask you if you have any preferences when it comes to contact lenses. Some of these may include eye color and overnight contact lens preferences.
  3. Eye Surface Measurements. Your eyes will be measured to find the right fit when it comes to contact lenses.
  4. Tear Film Evaluation. This test will determine whether or not you suffer from dry eyes and your prescription contact lens will be delivered according to this data.
  5. Lens Fitting. Your contact lenses will be fitted. A trial pair will be given to give you time to get adjusted to this new source of vision for you.
