Contact Lenses Q & A

Why should I consider contact lenses?

Contact lenses are an alternative to prescription eyeglasses. You might want to consider contact lenses if wearing glasses isn’t convenient or interferes with your physically active lifestyle.

For many, wearing contacts can provide better vision over eyeglasses. As the lenses sit on the eye surface and move with your eye, you can retain a wider range of vision, especially in the peripheral area.

Specialty contact lenses can also be beneficial for treating existing eye conditions that interfere with your vision. For instance, if you have an irregularly shaped cornea, gas permeable lenses Dr. Ebrahim uses in orthokeratology (ortho-k) therapy can change its shape to improve your visual acuity.

What types of contact lenses are available?

At D Vision Eyecare, lenses are available in a variety of brands and types to accommodate your vision and eye health needs. Dr. Ebrahim offers a large selection of contacts, including:

  • Soft lenses
  • Hard lenses
  • Rigid gas-permeable (RGP) lenses

D Vision Eyecare offers specialty contact lenses, such as scleral lenses for treating keratoconus and other corneal conditions. Dr. Ebrahim can also recommend specialty contacts if you have underlying conditions, like dry eye or allergies, or have specific needs following LASIK or other eye surgery.

Why do I need a contact lens exam?

If you’re interested in wearing contacts, you need to schedule a contact lens exam at D Vision Eyecare. This exam differs from a routine eye exam in that Dr. Ebrahim focuses not only on your overall eye health but also on identifying the right type of contact lenses that fit your needs.

During a contact lens exam, Dr. Ebrahim assesses your eye health and also ensures the contacts you wear fit properly, and the lens prescription provides you with good quality vision.

If you need specialty contact lenses to treat keratoconus or other conditions, a contact lens exam focuses on finding the best type of contact to correct vision and structural abnormalities in your eye.

These evaluations aren’t part of a routine eye exam and you need to let Dr. Ebrahim know that you’re interested in wearing contacts.
