Dr. Andrew S. Miller, O.D.
Contact Lens Options
Patients often tell us that their last optometrist told them they could not wear contacts because their prescription was too strong, they had too much astigmatism, their corneas were shaped funny, or numerous other reasons. Truth is, these days, anybody can wear contact lenses, no matter what the prescription is. There are certain pathological (disease) conditions which prohibit the use of contact lenses, but no-one should be told they cannot wear them because of their prescription. We have bifocal contact lenses for astigmatism, contact lenses for keratoconus, lenses for corneal grafts, etc..
If you have never worn lenses before, don't worry. Our staff is trained to personally train you in lens insertion and removal and proper care of contact lenses. If you are not sure, ask Dr. Miller, and he will make sure you are well informed about your lens options. All of our contact lens fittings are done on a "try before you buy" basis. If you try them and don't like them, you are not obligated to purchase any lenses. It's that simple. Go ahead and ask, it can't hurt!!
