After a comprehensive vision and eye health evaluation, our doctors will discuss a 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, speak with our staff to determine whether contact lenses are right for you
Contact Lens Evaluation
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, we 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. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Lawrence optometrist, call 785-843-3844 today.
After determining your eye health and the level of refractive error, we 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. Sort contact lenses are typically changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as rigid gas permeable scleral lenses and bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at 785-843-3844 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 785-843-3844 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
