Who Is the Right Candidate for Corrective Contact Lenses?
Following an extensive eye and vision evaluation, the optometrists at Atlanta Vision Cataract & Laser Center will discuss various contact lens alternatives to help you determine which options best suit your lifestyle and vision needs. Patients suffering from eye allergies, recurring eye infections, or dry eye can be certain to receive contacts that meet their unique needs. For some cases, glasses might be the best option to correct their vision problem, or maybe they can use a combination of contacts and glasses.
Before your contact lenses prescription, Dr. O’Day and Dr. Achiron determine your vision problem’s extent to develop a suitable treatment. Refractive error, often referred to as astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness (depending on various symptoms) can be evaluated by measuring one eye’s focus once a series of various lenses are put in front of them. Your provider might either use an automated instrument or phoropter to capture these measurements.
What Are the Corrective Lenses Options Available?
After determining your extent of refractive error, your practitioner works to determine if glasses or contact lenses are the best fit for your lifestyle. If you suffer particular conditions, for instance, allergies or dry eye, glasses might be the safest corrective solution. The lenses are available either in rigid or soft gas permeable form.
Contact lenses must be adjusted daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly according to the type of lenses you choose. Specialized contact lenses, like bifocal contact lenses, are also offered for patients with unique eye conditions.
What If Your Eye Problem Isn’t A Refractive Error?
Conventional contact lenses are often problematic for persons who have irregular cornea conditions or keratoconus. Fortunately, there are currently revolutionary soft lenses available and have proven effective for persons with irregular cornea conditions such as keratoconus and other issues caused by post-refractive and post-graft surgery.
Dr. O’Day and Dr. Achiron have offered safe and effective KeraSoft IC lenses for various patients. The innovative KeraSoft IC lenses utilize geometries and patented technology from complex mathematics to develop a lens design, which (made in silicone hydrogel material) provides visual acuity and comfort for irregular cornea patients or keratoconus.
What Are Other Contact Lens Options Available?
Advances in contact lens technology have developed excellent options for prosthetic and cosmetic lenses. Personalized contact lenses can be designed to hide any color irregularity or variation to produce natural eye color. If you want to modify your eye color, colored or cosmetic contact lenses are also available at Atlanta Vision Cataract & Laser Center.
At Atlanta Vision Cataract & Laser Center, Dr. O’Day and Dr. Achiron dedicate themselves to ensuring all existing and new patients enjoy the most comprehensive eye care services.
