Even if you already have a vision impairment problem and if you already wear prescription eyeglasses, you still need a comprehensive contact lens exam and a fitting. Even though glasses and contacts both treat vision impairment problems by providing your eyes with prescribed magnified lenses to see through, they work in slightly different ways. Most vision impairments derive from imperfections or irregularities in the shape of the cornea. The cornea is a lot like the lens of the camera, and the clarity and curvature of the cornea affects the way that light passes through your eyes, thus affecting how clearly you see the world around you. Prescription eyeglasses and contacts help to make up for these differences by providing your eyes with an additional lens that is magnified to a certain degree, but since glasses and contacts rest at different distances from your eyes they require a slightly different prescription strengths. With the help of Joseph Eng, OD you will be able to determine what your contact lens prescription will be, as well as whether your eyes are suitable for wearing contact lenses to begin with.
