At ClearView Eyecare, our Doctors will discuss the variety of contact lens options with you
to select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle. Contact lens evaluations can be
done during your comprehensive eye exam appointment. A comprehensive exam must be done at
least 90 days prior to a contact lens evaluation. If you suffer from dry eye, allergies, or recurring
eye infections, speak with our staff to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Anker or Dr. Pan will 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. If you are a new contact lens wearer, the FDA requires us to do an insertion and removal training.
After determining the level of refractive error, our Doctors work 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.
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.
