Contact Lenses Boston

Dr. Ernest Kornmehl is a respected ophthalmologist offering a range of sophisticated vision correction treatments. In addition to being regarded as a leading Boston LASIK surgeon, he is also acknowledged as a leading Boston contact lens expert. In the paragraphs below, Dr. Kornmehl provides information about contacts and how to choose the most appropriate lenses.

About Contact Lenses

Over the last decades, advancements in contact lens technology have made these vision correction devices more popular than ever. Due to their small size, contact lenses are virtually invisible, making them an excellent choice for people who need vision correction but do not want to wear glasses. In addition, today’s contact lenses are made of gel-like plastics, making them more comfortable and less irritating for the eye. As a highly experienced Boston contact lens specialist, Dr. Kornmehl conducts thorough evaluations to determine the best type of contact lenses for each patient.

Finding the Right Contact Lens

In order to obtain the best vision correction results possible, it is important to choose your contact lenses very carefully. During your contact lens consultation, Dr. Kornmehl will evaluate your vision to determine what type of correction you need for your myopia, hyperopia and/or astigmatism and presbyopia. He will measure your eye to choose a lens that fits your eye’s diameter and curvature. The result of this process is a contact lens prescription that provides both excellent vision correction and also complements your lifestyle.
