However, our optometrist will need to take special measurements of your eye, including the curvature of your cornea and the size of your iris. During the first part of our contact exam for contact lenses in Salinas, our optometrist will examine your eyes for any refractive errors. If it is determined that you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism our optometrist will be able to write a contact lens prescription for you that will once again make your vision crisp and clear.
During the second part of our exam for contact lenses in Salinas, our optometrist will examine your eyes to make sure they are completely healthy. Among the many eye diseases and disorders that you will be screened for are: dry eyes; glaucoma; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; retinal tears; cataracts; and other diseases of the cornea, macula, and retina. If it is determined that you have an eye problem our optometrist will be able to provide you with expert eye care. If you need advanced care, our optometrist will be happy to refer you to an ophthalmologist who specializes in your area of need. Our optometrist will also take the necessary measurements of your eye, and determine which type of contact lens will work the best for you. Our optometrists will also discuss with you which type of lenses you would prefer. Soft lenses, which most people wear today, come in several different lens types. They can be daily where, extended where, disposable lenses, or even color changing lenses.
