Contact Lens Exams, Fittings, & Brands


So Much More than Contact Lens Basics

At Dr. Zargar Eyecare, we know contact lenses. When it comes to exams, fittings, and brands, look no further than our friendly staff and convenient clinic.

Contact lenses can offer you freedom from glasses, whether you are looking to completely replace your glasses or just to add another visual option. Before you decide on making the switch, however, you should book an appointment with us – we will carefully assess your eyes to determine which lenses will be the best and most comfortable for you.

Book Your Appointment

Our Process

The Exam

Before determining whether contact lenses are a good choice for you, we will need to examine your eyes. Your eyes are unique: from the shape of your cornea to the quality of your tear film, it is important to know the composition of your eye and the state of your eye health before the right contact lens can be chosen for you.

The exam will let us determine your prescription, and if contact lenses are a good choice for your eyes.

The Fitting

During the fitting, we will take precise corneal and pupil measurements and keratometry readings to assess astigmatism.

Then we will be able to determine which contact lenses will be best based on clarity and fit. We will take the time to teach you how to insert and care for your contact lenses correctly.

The Lenses

Now that we know everything about your eyes, it is time to choose your lenses. With advancements in contact lens technology and materials, there are several types to choose from:

Soft lenses are the most common type of contact lens and are made using hydrogel. They come in a range of types, from extended-wear to daily disposables.

Rigid gas permeable lenses are less popular than soft contact lenses but remain a viable option for patients with astigmatism or whose eyes that require breathable contacts that allow more oxygen to pass through to the eye.

Specialty Contact Lenses

For eyes that require more care, we offer a variety of specialty contact lenses. For patients with astigmatism, dry eyes, irregular corneas, and more, these contacts benefit many of our patients:

Toric lenses are shaped to correct both the vertical and horizontal refractions in people with astigmatism. These contact lenses stop objects from looking blurred, tilted or stretched. Weighted to keep them from rotating and moving, toric lenses need to be specially fitted by your optometrist.

Multifocal contact lenses correct vision deficiencies without causing strain in other areas by combining the power of distance and near prescriptions into one lens.

For those who suffer from keratoconus or irregular corneas, hybrid lenses combine the comfort of soft lenses with the refractive power of rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses. The outer portion is flexible, yet comfortable, while the inner portion is rigid creating a sharper image.

Aspheric lenses vary in curvature, creating a more specific focal point on the back of the eye. This enhances the quality of vision and increased depth of focus for myopic patients.

Scleral contact lenses are larger in diameter than traditional contacts. Instead of on the iris, scleral contacts rest on the sclera (whites) of your eyes, allowing it to “vault” over the cornea. These lenses are a great option for those with corneal issues like keratoconus.

Orthokeratology, or Ortho-K, contact lenses are specialty contacts designed to help manage myopia development. Ortho-K lenses work by gently reshaping your cornea while you sleep, helping you achieve clear, crisp vision without the aid of glasses or contact lenses throughout the day.

MiSight contact lenses are specialty contact lenses that help manage myopia in children. By using a refractive technique called peripheral defocus, light is focused just in front of your child’s retina, which prevents the eye from getting longer as they get older, greatly reducing how fast myopia develops.

The Trial Period

After fitting your contacts and answering all your questions, we will send you home with a few trial pairs. If you are not completely satisfied with your new contact lenses, we will try other brands and styles until we find the most comfortable fit.
