contact lens fitting
Before you start sticking things in your eye, you're going to need to be fit!
Determining things like the shape of your eye, your specific prescription, and any factors such as dry eye are crucial in getting you in the lenses that are going to be the healthiest and most comfortable for you.
Based on your prescription, Dr. Guzik will determine your need for single vision or multifocal lenses, toric lenses to correct for any astigmatism, and the correct lens "size" to fit you.
The doc will also be sure to fit you in a lens specific to your needs to suit your lifestyle, such as daily disposable lenses, soft or RGP (rigid gas permeable) hard lenses, and even cosmetic contact lenses!
If you're a long-time lens wearer, Dr. Guzik will perform a new fitting at every exam to make sure your lens design is still working for you, and stay abreast of the newest contact lens technology.
