A contact lens is a medical device. For this reason, a contact lens evaluation is performed for all first time wearers and existing contact lens wearers. On an annual basis, every contact lens wearer must have an annual contact lens evaluation. This evaluation is medically necessary to ensure proper fit and alignment of gas permeable and soft contact lenses. In particular, it is important to note if the contact lens is possibly damaging the cornea and surrounding ocular surface.
Thanks to advances in optical technology, almost everyone can now wear contact lenses, regardless of the type or extent of their vision problems. That includes patients with astigmatism and those who need bifocal or multifocal lenses. At Issaquah Eye Care, we offer a comprehensive array of contact lenses to suit our patients’ individual needs—from daily disposables to extended-wear soft contacts to rigid gas-permeable lenses.
