At EnVision Eye Care, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Contact lenses are a great alternative to glasses and can provide a better sense of self-confidence to a patient that glasses might not be able to provide. Corrective contact lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by all of our optometrists.
After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, your doctor will discuss the variety of contact lens options with you to select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution.
Evaluation and Follow-Ups
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, our doctors determine 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.
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 your optometrist selects for you. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions.
We have a large selection of trial contact lenses in stock at our office. After prescribing a brand and power, our doctors ask that patients (especially those new to our office or contact lenses in general) return to the office for a brief follow-up visit after approximately one week of wearing these trial lenses. This ensures that the contact lenses you've been prescribed are comfortable and meet your vision correction needs.
Cosmetic and Colored Lenses
Recent 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. Colored cosmetic lenses are also available to transform and enhance your eye color.
