If you are thinking about getting contact lenses for the first time, or are due for a contact lens exam and fitting, visit us at West U Vision. At our vision practice and optical store, you can have a contact lens and fitting by our therapeutic optometrist, Dr. Christine Castillo or Dr. MH Rockoff, and then purchase contact lenses in Houston at our optical store.
It is very important that your contact lenses fit correctly because contact lenses can cause permanent damage to the cornea if they do not fit you well. Our eye doctor will perfectly fit you for contact lenses in Houston and let you know which type of contact lenses will work best for you. Today most of our patients wear soft contact lenses. Soft contact lenses are extremely comfortable and easy to get used to. They come in different types such as: extended wear lenses which can be worn for several days before they are removed; daily wear lenses which are worn for a certain period of time each day and are then removed for cleaning; color-changing lenses which make it appear as though your eye color has changed; and disposable lenses which are worn for one day and then thrown out and replaced with a fresh pair. Today, even patients with dry eye or astigmatism are able to have their vision safely and accurately corrected with contact lenses. If your vision is better corrected with rigid gas permeable lenses, we offer these for you as well. During a contact lens exam and fitting your visual acuity will be tested, and your eyes will be screened for many different eye diseases. These diseases include: glaucoma; cataracts; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; dry eyes; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. During a contact lens exam and fitting, our optometrist will also measure the curvature of your cornea and size of your iris to make sure that the new contacts will fit you perfectly.
