Think of your contact lens fitting appointment as an opportunity to have your questions answered and your concerns addressed. While there are many people who do not tolerate wearing contact lenses very well, with the right type of lens and the proper instruction on how to wear and care for them, they will work. 

The Basics of a Contact Lens Fitting

Many people who are interested in leaving glasses behind hesitate due to nervousness about undergoing a contact lens fitting. During your exam at Vision Professionals of Leawood, you can expect our eye doctors to check a few things in addition to your vision and eyesight. We will ensure that you are a good candidate for contact lenses and we will review the various types that are available. 

Depending on your lifestyle and preferences, we may recommend hard or soft lenses, single-use or long-wear, and gas permeable or scleral. Certain conditions, such as astigmatism, can make it more difficult to fit lenses for you, but in most cases, we can find the right solutions. Contact lens exams do not need to be a source of stress or anxiety, but a way to give you another option for your vision care.
