Contact lenses are medical devices. They require a special prescription, different from eyeglasses prescription, and need to be fitted by a licensed eye care professional. For optimal health, a corneal health and contact lens evaluation should be performed at every eye exam. It is important to know that every eye is different, including your own two eyes. To properly fit contact lenses, the unique characteristics of your eyes have to be determined with precision. Poor-fitting contacts can result in irritation, infections, corneal scratches and sometimes even blindness.
