Yakima Contact Lenses and Exams 

Whether you've worn eyeglasses all your life and you're itching for a change, you need a safe vision correction solution for contact sports or you just want to try out a different eye color, you'll find what you're looking for in a well-made, properly-fitted pair of contact lenses in Yakima, WA. These convenient vision correction devices have been available to the public since the 1930s, and modern-day contacts come in a wide range of options. Contact lens exams can ensure that you get the comfort and performance you need and deserve. Yakima Vision Center today!

Your Source for Contact Lens Exams in Yakima

Corrective lenses and eyeglasses are both popular, non-surgical methods for correcting vision conditions such as nearsightedness (myopia) and farsightedness (hyperopia). These disorders, which occur when the eyeball's shape isn't ideally spherical, are known as refractive errors because they interfere with the way incoming light is refracted and processed. Astigmatism is also a refractive error, one which occurs when there is cornea irregularity. If you have an age-related condition called presbyopia, problems with the ability to focus may cause symptoms of both nearsightedness and farsightedness, with or without astigmatism. 

Our Yakima eye doctor will perform the same range of vision tests normally done to check for refractive errors and pinpoint your corrective lens prescription. Before your fitting for contacts, our Yakima eye doctor must also measure the exact contours of your corneas to ensure that your contacts will fit like a second skin. We use an advanced technique called corneal topography to accomplish this. The pupil and iris must also be measured with great precision. Last but not least, the optometrist takes your medical history, determines whether you currently have any vision-related conditions and asks you about any activities or lifestyle preferences that might affect the type of contacts you need (disposable vs. extended wear, for example).

Hard to Fit Contacts from Our Yakima Optometrist

Contact lenses used to limited to patients with mild or simple vision correction issues but that's no longer the case. If you've been told that you can't wear contacts, come check out the state-of-the-art options and technologies available to you from our Yakima optometrist. We offer a variety of hard to fit contacts, including:

  • RGP (Rigid Gas Permeable) lenses for conditions such as keratoconus and giant papillary conjunctivitis
  • Bifocal/multifocal and monovision contacts for correcting presbyopia
  • Toric contacts for correcting astigmatism

The advanced diagnostic equipment and highly-trained technicians at our Yakima eye clinic can create and fit even the most hard to fit contacts. We offer specialty lenses as well as brands such as Ciba Vision, J&J and B&L. In fact, our Yakima eye clinic is often among the first in the nation to gain access to the latest lens designs and options. You won't find these lenses at just any optical outlet so call (509) 965-5200 for an appointment with our Yakima optometrist!
