Your Contact Lens Fitting Process

Before prescribing your contact lenses, we perform a contact lens fitting. During the fitting, we perform various measurements to find an ideal lens type for you. We also provide guidance on inserting, removing, and caring for your contacts.

Our team also implements cutting edge technology like optical coherence tomography (OCT)  in the fitting of our scleral lenses.

How Contact Lenses Can Help You

Contact lenses offer vision correction and can help correct refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), presbyopia, and astigmatism. 

Different specialty contacts can also help manage eye conditions like dry eye and keratoconus, allowing you to wear contact lenses comfortably. During your exam, we can review your lifestyle and preferences to determine what lenses are an ideal fit.

A Customized Contact Lens Experience

When you require a more specialized, complex fit, our team at Dr. McGregor & Associates is here for you. We prioritize your safety and comfort, and implement topography-based lens designs that use maps of the cornea.

When it comes to fitting contact lenses, topography-based lens designs that use maps of the cornea are gaining popularity among eye care practitioners. These designs use the data we collect to create custom contact lenses that provide a comfortable fit and clear vision.

Our Contact Lens Options

Contact lenses typically fall under 2 main categories: soft contact lenses and rigid gas-permeable (RGP). Under these main categories are specialty options that we use to correct various vision problems and eye issues, such as scleral lenses and ortho-k lenses.

Soft lenses are made of flexible plastics that allow oxygen to pass through to the cornea, which can provide comfort throughout the day. RGP lenses, on the other hand, are made of a harder, less flexible plastic, which can provide sharp vision and added durability.

Scleral Contact Lenses

Scleral lenses are RGP lenses that sit on the sclera (white of your eyes), unlike traditional contacts that rest directly on your cornea.

Scleral contacts can be an excellent option for patients who have trouble wearing contacts due to eye conditions such as dry eye and keratoconus. These lenses vault over the cornea and allow for more space, providing extra breathability and comfort by creating a fluid reservoir between the lens and the eye to keep your eyes hydrated.

Orthokeratology, or ortho-k, is a non-surgical procedure that uses specially designed contact lenses to gently reshape the curvature of the cornea. This temporary reshaping provides an alternative way of correcting vision without the need for glasses or traditional contact lenses during the day.

Ortho-k lenses can provide numerous benefits, including improved vision without the need for glasses or daytime contact lenses, reduced risk of eye infections, and slowed myopia progression.

Aspheric contact lenses are an advanced option for individuals with certain types of vision problems, including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. Unlike traditional spherical contact lenses, aspheric lenses have a gradually changing curve that mimics the natural shape of the cornea.

Aspheric contacts can also provide sharper vision, especially for those with higher prescriptions.

Toric contact lenses are designed to correct astigmatism. These lenses feature multiple powers, one vertical and the other horizontal. These multiple powers can help correct nearsightedness and farsightedness. Toric lenses are typically weighted to help maintain the correct orientation on the eye.

Multifocal contact lenses merge multiple prescriptions to help correct vision issues such as presbyopia, hyperopia, and myopia. A bifocal lens features 2 different prescriptions in the same lens, a common solution for patients with blurry near and far vision.

With multiple prescriptions in a single lens, you can comfortably cycle through activities such as reading or driving without switching your contacts.

Hybrid lenses feature an RGP center with softer edges made of hydrogel or silicone hydrogel materials. Hybrid lenses combine the comfort of soft contacts and the crisp vision of RGP lenses.

Hybrid lenses are also a good option for physical activity as they are larger with thin edges, making them less likely to fall out. New-generation hybrid lenses can also be a good option for patients with keratoconus.
