If you’ve been thinking about contacts lenses as a vision correction solution, but you aren’t quite sure if it’s the right option for you, there are a few things for you to consider.
Firstly, if you have been told in the past that you are not an ideal candidate for contact lenses, there is likely still hope. Dr. Ryczek is a contact lens pioneer, and he specializes in providing contact lenses that other doctors are not equipped to offer. Dr. Ryczek works with the most advanced contact lens technology to provide not only a wide range of lenses for basic vision correction, but also offers a range of specialty lenses for patients with more specific visual ailments. From everyday disposable lenses to rigid, hybrid and scleral lenses for patients with keratoconus, Dr. Ryczek can fit almost anyone with a viable contact lens prescription.
Contact Lens Candidacy
On the other hand, while most vision correction patients we see can benefit from contact lenses, not everybody is an ideal candidate. That’s why Dr. Ryczek performs thorough contact lens exams to make sure that contact lenses will benefit both your vision and your lifestyle. During your exam, he can assess your eyesight and medical requirements along with your lifestyle preferences to help you determine which options are right for you.
Generally speaking though, contact lenses can be a great solution for a large pool of patients in need of vision correction. So how do you know if contact lenses will be a good fit for you? Well, you might be a good candidate if:
- You require vision correction for issues related to myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism
- You currently wear prescription glasses but find them to be a hindrance to your lifestyle
- You would simply prefer to incorporate contacts into your vision correction plan
At the end of the day, determining whether or not contacts are right for you is a choice best left up to you and Dr. Ryczek after your needs have been properly assessed. To schedule an appointment to see if contact lenses are right for you, contact our St. Petersburg office by calling 727-327-8855.
