Contact Lens Evaluations

 

     Are you looking for a glasses-free look?

     Want hassle-free vision correction?

     Tired of misplacing your glasses?

     Want to wear non-prescription sunglasses or goggles?

     Looking for options to enhance your vision correction?

 

Today, you can achieve all of these and more with contact lenses. Based on your comprehensive eye exam, Dr. Walsh will recommend the best contact lenses for you based on your visual needs both at work and play. Most people can wear more than one type of lens. Therefore, it is important to know what your choices are and the advantages and disadvantages of each.

 

Soft Lenses

Disposable soft contact lenses are comfortable to wear and have various replacement options to meet your needs. Contacts can provide correction for most prescriptions including astigmatism. Silicone Hydrogel is the newest material for soft lenses. They are healthier than conventional soft lenses because they allow up to 6 times more oxygen to pass through them; increased oxygen transmission results in better overall eye health.

 

Gas Permeable (GP) Lenses

Gas Permeable lenses are made of a moderately flexible plastic that offers the sharpest vision of contact lens options. GP lenses can provide correction for almost all prescriptions. For individuals who were previously unsuccessful with soft lenses or who have certain eye conditions, GP lenses can provide a good option for these patients. GP lenses transmit more oxygen to the eye than traditional soft contact lenses (although some silicone hydrogel are comparable to GP lenses in oxygen transmission). GP lenses tend to be more durable than soft contact and most are replaced annually.

 

Multifocal Lenses

Multifocal contact lenses are available in both soft and GP designs. These lenses offer patients both distance and near vision correction just like a pair of bifocal glasses.

 

 

Regardless of the type of contact lenses you wear, it is important to have an annual eye examination. This allows the doctor to ensure your eyes are healthy to continue to wear contacts, verify your prescription and make sure the lenses are fitting properly.
