At Advanced Family EyeCare, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Our optometrist provides corrective lens evaluations and prescription management in Sweet Home. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Michael Stoner will discuss the variety of contact lens options with you to select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Stoner determines what level of vision correction you require.
Refractive error (nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism) 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.
After determining the level of refractive error, we can decide whether glasses or contact lenses are best for you. If you have dry eye, allergies, or other similar conditions, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution.
Specialized contact lenses are also available for patients with special eye conditions.
Contact lenses are available in soft or rigid gas-permeable forms. How often they need to be changed depends on the type of lens.
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.
This develops when the front of the eye curves into a bulge or oval shape. It causes blurred vision and can be difficult to correct because regular contacts cannot account for bulging.
Excessively dry eyes lead to irritation, burning, redness, and blurred vision. Contact lenses can exacerbate these conditions by making it feel like a foreign object is stuck in your eye.
This form of conjunctivitis is caused by inflammation on the inner surface of the eyelid. Protein buildup on contact lenses can make this condition worse.
