Contact Lens Exams
At Spartanburg Vision, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, our doctors 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 dry eye, allergies, or recurring eye infections, we will discuss your options and determine whether contact lenses are right for you.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, we 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. The doctor will use a phoropter to take these measurements and determine your prescription. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with us, call (864) 585-7807 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, our doctor will 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, 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 that need both distance and near correction. Call us at (864) 585-7807 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 (864) 585-7807 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
