Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are worn directly on the cornea of the eye. Like eyeglasses, contact lenses help to correct refractive errors and perform this function by adding or subtracting focusing power to the eye’s cornea and lens.

Reading a contact lens prescription:

The prescription for contact lenses includes more information than what is available on the prescription for eyeglasses. Special measurements are taken of the curvature of the eye. In addition, your physician will determine if your eyes are too dry for contact lenses, and if there are any corneal problems that may prevent a person from wearing contact lenses. Trial lenses are usually tested on the eyes for a period of time to ensure proper fit.

The contact lens prescription usually includes the following information:

  • contact lens power (measured in diopters, like eyeglasses)
  • contact lens base curve
  • diameter of the lens

Eye care specialists are required by federal law to give you a copy of your contact lens specifications.
