Your eye health depends heavily on annual exams when you wear contact lenses. You may not notice subtle changes that can occur. By getting a professional evaluation, you make sure that your lenses are still the best ones for your eyes.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Cargill 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 Wexford optometrist, call (724) 935-5761 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Cargill 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 (724) 935-5761 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 (724) 935-5761 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
