What Are Elective Contact Lenses?
After your doctor at the Dean McGee Eye Institute performs a comprehensive eye exam, they may determine that you require vision correction in the form of glasses or contact lenses. Contact lenses are considered elective when the degree of vision correction needed can be achieved by either wearing glasses or contact lenses. Based on your prescription from your doctor, you will be given the choice to wear glasses or opt for the convenience that contact lenses provide.
