Contact Lenses

After completeing a full examination of your eyes, the doctor will need to perform a contact lens fitting to determine if you are a good candidate for contacts. The doctor will evaluate your vision needs an determine which type of contact lens material and design will be most compatible. The doctor will need to take some additional measurements of the surface of your eye to ensure proper fit of your contact lenses.


There are many different types of vision correction.

Contact Lenses in Bradenton FloridaSingle Vision Correction
Single vision correction is intended to correct only one vision issue, such as nearsightedness or farsightedness, and uses only one lens that has the same power throughout the entire lens as opposed to a bifocal or progressive lense.

Monovision Correction
Monovision correction is intended to correct both near and far vision, by fitting one eye (the dominant eye) with a distance lense and fitting the other eye with a near lens making it possible to see both in the distance and near.

Multifocal Correction
Multifocal correction through contact lenses is achievable through several options. There are contact lenses that use a bifocal design with two separate lens powers (distance vision and near vision) as well as multifocal design similar to progressive eyeglass lenses, providing a gradual change in lens power from distance to near.
