Patients often think seeing Dr. Tumolo is solely to attain a new prescription for glasses and / or contact lenses. While this is part of the examination process, this is not the process in its totality.
Soft contact lenses sit on the front surface of your eye called the cornea. More specifically soft contact lenses sit on the thin tear film that coats the cornea. Contact lenses can correct your vision very similarly to how glasses correct your vision. Contact lenses can be a great alternative to glasses but like everything, contact lenses need to be used and cared for properly or they can potentially cause harm.
