The Importance of a Comprehensive Eye Exam

The journey to prescription contact lenses starts with a thorough eye examination. Our skilled professionals at Contact Lens Gallery & Designer Eyewear use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to assess your eye health and determine your exact prescription. During this examination, we not only identify your refractive errors but also screen for any underlying eye conditions that might affect your choice of contact lenses.

Eye exams are the cornerstone of accurately diagnosing vision problems. They enable our optometrists to identify a wide range of issues, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and more. Without a thorough eye exam, it's challenging to pinpoint the precise nature and severity of your vision impairment. At Contact Lens Gallery & Designer Eyewear, we’ll ensure your eyes are thoroughly examined and the correct prescription contact lenses are prescribed based on your needs.

Finding the Right Pair of Contact Lenses

Whether it’s your first time getting prescription contact lenses, or you need a new pair—our skilled optometrists take the time to understand your unique vision needs, lifestyle, and preferences. Whether you require daily disposable lenses, extended wear contacts, or specialized lenses for conditions like astigmatism or presbyopia, we have a wide selection to choose from in Albuquerque. We consider factors such as comfort, durability, and your daily activities to recommend the most suitable option, ensuring you enjoy optimal vision and comfort throughout your day to day.

The Benefits of Contact Lenses

Prescription contact lenses offer numerous advantages over traditional eyeglasses. They provide a wider field of vision, eliminate issues like fogging or reflections, and can be a more comfortable option, especially during physical activities. Many people appreciate the cosmetic benefits as well, as contact lenses allow you to showcase your natural eye color.

Not only are these great benefits, but contact lenses can also help with:
  • Enhanced Peripheral Vision: Contact lenses provide a more natural field of vision compared to eyeglasses, as they move with your eyes. This enhances your ability to see objects and people from various angles, which is particularly advantageous for activities like sports.
  • Less Maintenance: Contact lenses require minimal maintenance compared to eyeglasses. There's no need to clean smudges or worry about frames becoming misaligned. Daily disposable lenses eliminate the need for cleaning altogether.
  • Reduced Distortion: Eyeglass wearers may experience distortion at the edges of their lenses, which can be particularly bothersome for those with strong prescriptions. Contact lenses provide distortion-free vision.
  • Customizable Options: With various types of contact lenses available, including soft, gas permeable, multifocal, and toric (for astigmatism), there's a lens type to suit your unique vision needs.
  • Convenience for Travel: Traveling with contact lenses is often more convenient than carrying spare eyeglasses, and you don't have to worry about potential breakage during your trip.
At Contact Lens Gallery & Designer Eyewear in Albuquerque, our expert optometrists can help you explore these advantages and find the perfect contact lens solution tailored to your specific needs and lifestyle.

Regular Eye Exams and Prescription Updates

The importance of regular eye exams cannot be overstated. Even if you are already wearing contact lenses, it's essential to schedule routine check-ups. Your eyes change over time, and so can your prescription. Outdated prescriptions can lead to discomfort and suboptimal vision. Our optometrists will advise you on when it's time to update your prescription to ensure your contact lenses continue to meet your visual needs.
