Glasses and Contact Lenses Q & A

What types of contacts are available?

When you come to the office for new contacts, Dr. Kruger and the team recommend contacts that help you see clearly based on your individual prescription, lifestyle, and eye health. Dr. Kruger evaluates your eyes, measures them for contacts, and suggests lenses that provide the best vision correction, comfort, and ease of care. Some of the lenses that may meet your needs include:

  • Toric lenses to correct astigmatism
  • Multifocal contacts
  • Bifocal contacts
  • Spherical lenses
  • Rigid gas-permeable lenses
  • Extended-wear contacts
  • Daily, weekly, or monthly soft disposable contacts

If you’re not sure what to expect with new contacts, Dr. Kruger can order trial pairs so you can decide which ones you like best before you return for a follow-up exam.

What are the best glasses frame shapes for my face?

Choosing glasses frames that look as good as they function is essential for many people who wear glasses since your frames become an outward expression of your personal style. When browsing the wide selection of designer frames at Dr. Kruger’s office, keep a few things in mind, such as:

  • The shape of your face
  • Skin tone
  • Hair color
  • Vision prescription
  • Lifestyle

Certain shapes of frames look better on different face shapes. For example, if you have a round face, choose eyeglass frames that are more angular to balance out your natural curves. The vision team can help you select frames that are a good proportion in overall size and shape for your individual facial features.

Additionally, depending on your prescription and whether or not you need bifocals or progressive lenses, certain frames may accommodate your vision needs better than others.
