Contact Lens Exams
At Premier Eye Associates, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrists in Collingswood. After a comprehensive eye and vision 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.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, our doctors determine what level of vision correction you require. Your refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them.
After determining the level of refractive error, the doctors will work with you to determine whether contact lenses are right for you. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, it can make the contact lens fitting more difficult so our doctors will work with you to maximize your vision and comfort. Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form. Lenses need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you select.
Challenges such as astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus and dry eyes are not necessarily a barrier to wear contacts, but they may require specialty contact lenses or additional treatment. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, scleral contact lenses, and our Gentle Vision Shaping System (GVSS) are also available for patients with special eye conditions.
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 (856) 858-3937 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
