It's essential to make sure that your contact lenses are clean and in good condition before you put them in. If they're not, you should consult with your optometrist. During a contact lens exam, the optometrist will assess your eyes and decide which lens type would be most suitable and effective for your vision. He may give you some test lenses to see how they fit and feel.
EyeDoctors optometrists provide a variety of specialized contact lenses to help people with different eye conditions. Wearing contact lenses without a prescription or a different brand than prescribed (each brand fits the eye differently) can be very hazardous for your eye health and won't properly correct your vision. Only an optometrist or ophthalmologist can determine the type and degree of vision correction you need. You can only order the brand that appears on your prescription if you ever want to switch brands or try a new one, let your optometrist know. Look for abbreviations and terms that are familiar to you and make sure they match the prescription your optometrist has prescribed.
Only an optometrist can determine the prescription for your contact lenses, regardless of whether you already have a prescription for eyeglasses or not. There are minor adjustment variations from manufacturer to manufacturer, so it's always important to check with an optometrist before changing the contact lenses you're wearing. Visit The EyeDoctors Optometrists to get an eye exam and find out what type of contact lenses are best for you. To get a prescription for contact lenses, you must schedule a contact lens exam and adjustment with an optometrist.

It's important to remember that only an optometrist or ophthalmologist can accurately determine the type of vision correction you need, as well as the right brand of contact lenses for your eyes.
