Are you done wearing glasses every day? Ready to change up your look? Wyoming Eye Associates in Casper, Wyoming can walk you through one of our contact lens exams to find the perfect contact lenses for your eyes.

Contact lens exams help eye doctors choose your prescription, see the shape of your eyes and check the health of your eyes to determine if you're a good fit for contacts. If the doctor decides contacts are a good option for you, they will go ahead and move forward with your contact lens fitting.

3 tips for first-time contact wearers

Wearing contacts for the first time can be intimidating, especially if you've never been exposed to them. During your contact lens fitting, your eye doctor will help you learn how to insert and take out your contacts. Here are a few tips for first-time contact wearers:

  1. Keep your lenses clean. If you have dust, dirt or bacteria on the lenses, you run the risk of contracting an eye infection. Plus, if you have any dust particles on your lenses, they can be painful to wear.
  2. Don't wear them too long. Your contact lenses will have instructions to tell you when you need to change them. If you don't change them when instructed, you can develop an eye infection.
  3. Always make sure they're right-side out. If you put your contacts in backwards, it can be extremely painful. Check your contacts before you put them in to make sure they're oriented correctly. Your eye doctor can show you this process, as well.
