Our optometrist will have you place your contact lenses in your eyes to make sure that they fit the way they should.

If they don’t, our optometrist will help you get the contact lenses you need for improved comfort. Keep in mind that some types of contact lenses are more suitable for certain lifestyles than others. Our optometrist can help you choose from different types of lenses that best suit your lifestyle, such as disposable ones, extended wear lenses or gas permeable lenses.

Routine Contact Lens Exams in Stratford and Bridgeport

Your contact lens prescription is likely to change, so it’s important to have regular contact lens exams. Depending on your vision, you might have changes in your prescription every year or every few years. In general, you should plan on coming for an exam at least once a year.

When you see our optometrist in Stratford and Bridgeport for your exam, you’ll know if it’s time to get lenses with a stronger prescription.
