Establishing a Good Contact Lens Fit at Dr. Steven R. Warstadt & Associates

It starts with a thorough eye exam to ensure the most up-to-date prescription and rule out any pre-existing conditions that could interfere with contact lens wear.

Fitting lenses to your lifestyle
We will determine the best fitting lens based on your lifestyle needs and the shape and health of your eyes. In most cases, you’ll have the opportunity to try lenses on the same day as your exam. You may even go home with a few samples before making a final decision.

Follow up fittings
Our Atlanta team will follow up after the initial fitting and then make any necessary changes in fit or materials to get you the best possible result. We teach all our patients proper contact lens care and also possible consequences if proper care is not taken. Then we continue with long-term follow-up to monitor the condition of the lenses and to ensure that proper hygiene is being maintained.

Q&A with Dr. Steven R. Warstadt & Associates answer some of your eyecare questions

I want to wear contact lenses but my allergies are awful during the spring and fall here in Atlanta, what can I do?

Although full time wear might not be possible, daily disposable contact lenses are a perfect choice. A fresh new pair on a daily basis keeps comfort high. They are the healthiest, most hygienic option. With a new pair everyday there is no buildup of debris or pollen on the lenses.

OK I like the better comfort and convenience thing but I have astigmatism. Do they make lenses for this condition?

Absolutely! We fit and evaluate several different brands.

Oh by the way, I also wear no line bifocals and reading glasses. Anything for me?

Sure thing! Daily disposable multifocal lenses are available and we are experts in fitting and evaluating them.

So I will throw you a curve. I have astigmatism and wear reading glasses. Are there daily disposable lenses made with this type of prescription?

No, not yet however we have several strategies available to handle these situations.

My child wants to wear contact lenses. I am concerned about the health aspect of contact lenses.

We recommend daily disposable lenses for all children, in fact everyone, again due to the health and convenience considerations. A CDC study reported that 85 percent of teenagers use contact lenses improperly “upping their odds for serious eye infections”. These risky habits include “sleeping, napping or swimming with their contacts in; reusing solution; rinsing lenses in tap water; or not replacing lenses and storage cases as recommended.” The survey also found about 81 percent of young adults between 18 to 24 and 87 percent of adults 25 and older admit to at least one lapse of not following contact lens care guidelines.

Wow that’s pretty eye opening. So should I then consider wearing contact lenses?

Of course. With proper use contact lens wear is safe and fun! And the daily disposable modality reduces risk.

Our Contact Lens Services:

As part of our COVID-19 protocol we are now requiring our patients to undergo an Optomap Retinal exam in lieu of dilation to evaluate the inside lining of the eye. This procedure is being performed to lessen the time spent in our office. There is an additional fee of $35.00 for this test which is often not covered by insurance plans as it is considered a health screening. However, it can be billed to a medical insurance plan if there is a retinal disease diagnosis. Please speak to our staff for more information.
