Trial: Sure. An adjustment in your visual needs can usually be figured out by your contact lens fitting technician. Remember to bring in the measurement of how far your eyes are from the computer monitor. Contact lens options can be discussed with you to best meet your refraction and corneal measurements. A trial period is usually needed. If all else fails, glasses may be the best choice.
