Glasses aren’t for everyone
Glasses have grown in popularity over the years and are now considered to be a stylish option by many. However, just because glasses work well for a lot of people does not mean that they are the best option for you.
Whether you are opposed to wearing glasses for aesthetic reasons or because they do not work well with your lifestyle, contact lenses are the frame-free solution you are looking for.
Comprehensive contact lens care
You will find all of the guidance and care you need to make responsible contact lens decisions when you come in for a visit at Graham Eye Care. The comprehensive contact lens care you will receive includes:
- The right prescription for your eye health needs
- Contact lens fitting for optimal performance and comfort
- Assistance in choosing the best brand and type of contacts for you
- Education on how to properly wear and care for your contacts
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Howell determines what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism depending on the error) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. An optometrist may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Graham optometrist, call 940-549-1800 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Howell works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution. Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form. Contact lenses need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at 940-549-1800 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.
Advances in contact lens technology have created great options for cosmetic and prosthetic lenses. Custom contact lenses can be created to camouflage any color variation or irregularity and produce a natural eye color. Cosmetic lenses are also available to transform your eye color. Call us at 940-549-1800 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
