Dr. Christina and Dr. Kevin offer expert contact lens fittings and evaluations. They even have options for the “hard to fit” patients.
Specialty Contact Lenses
Dr. Kevin is certified in several specialty contact lens designs including SynergEyes Hybrid contacts and WAVE rigid gas permeable (RGP) in order to help patients with conditions such as keratoconus, surgically altered corneas or traumatic corneas. Some of these specialty contacts can even be made in bifocal form.
Our office is not obligated to stay with any single manufacturer. We will make every effort to match your needs, and wants with a compatible contact lens. We do however like patients to remember that contact lens use is a responsibility. We stress that patients maintain good ocular health with proper care of their contacts at home and with regular office visits as recommended.
If you are interested in contact lens options and you think you can touch your eyes we are happy to evaluate and fit you.
We offer a large variety of contact lens options
Toric for Astigmatism
Even high range/power astigmatism
Bifocal with Astigmatism
Contacts for Drier Eyes
Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP)
Clean your contacts before storing them. We recommend rubbing soft lenses in the solution for about 20 seconds to help remove germs—even if it’s one of the newer products labeled “no rub.” But don’t overdo it, lenses can be torn. Rub back and forth, not in a circular motion to avoid tearing. Always use fresh solution for storing your contacts. Never “top off” by adding a squirt to the liquid already used for storage or overnight cleaning.
After putting the lenses back in your eyes, dump out any remaining solution and rinse the case with fresh solution.
Let the case air-dry, with caps off, in a clean area.
Minimize contact with water, including removing lenses before going swimming, it is okay to swim in daily, or single use contacts. Keep the contact lens case clean and replace it as needed. Lens cases can be a source of contamination and infection. Do not use cracked or damaged, or dirty lens cases.
Taking Care of Your Eyes
Proper care of your eyes is just as important as proper lens care.
Remove the contact lenses and contact us if you experience symptoms such as redness, pain, excessive tearing, blurry vision, discharge, or swelling. Do not wear torn, damaged, or dirty lenses.
Remember to dispose of contacts as recommended. EW or Extended Wear contacts are more dangerous than daily wear lenses. Only sleep in lenses if approved to do so.
Get Regular Exams
The risk of eye infection is small, but eye infections can threaten your vision, so proper lens care is essential to eye health.
If you wear contacts, you should be examined by an eye care provider annually or earlier if problems arise.
As with any prescription, contact lens prescriptions do expire. You should see an eye care professional yearly to ensure they have an accurate and appropriate prescription.
