Are Contact Lenses Right for Me?
Contact lenses may be an ideal choice for vision correction for teens and adults, people who play sports or lead active lifestyles, and those who prefer not to wear glasses. Contacts may also be appropriate for older children in some instances. This option does require extra care and attention, however. Patients who aren't committed to caring for them properly or who have certain types of eye conditions may not be good candidates for contact lenses.
What Should I Expect?

The eye doctors at our West Palm Beach, FL office recommend a follow-up visit several weeks following contact installation to make sure that the lenses are comfortable and working properly. It’s important to keep in mind that these follow-up evaluations do not act as regular full eye exams, which need to occur at least every two years. During comprehensive exams, we will monitor the overall health of your eyes, along with your lens prescription, to decide if it needs to be adjusted.
