Evaluation

Prior to prescribing contact lenses, your doctor will perform an annual eye exam. 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 contacts lens prescription requires additional testing and isn’t always the same power as your glasses prescription. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Lubbock optometrist, call (806) 747-1635 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, the doctor works 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, weekly, 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 with special eye conditions.
