Is it just about time that you need to get new contacts or prescription lenses? If your eyeglass or contact lens prescription has expired, you will first need to see an optometrist to have your eyes re-examined, and to make sure that your prescription needs have not changed. Many patients enjoy coming to our practice, San Tan Eye Care, because they can experience one-stop shopping when it comes to their eye care needs. People are able to have expert eye exams and contact lens exams and fittings, and then purchase contacts or prescription eyeglasses and lenses all at our friendly eye care practice. The next time you need contact lenses in Chandler, or prescription lenses, be sure to come visit us.
At our vision practice, we offer the services of two top-notch optometrists. Our optometrists are Dr. Jack Hostetler and Dr. Jonathan Wold. If you are getting contact lenses in Chandler, you will be able to first have a contact lens exam and fitting, if you are not coming in with a current contact lens prescription. During our contact lens exam, your eyes will be thoroughly checked to determine their current visual acuity. New prescriptions will take into account your new level of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. Today even patients with astigmatism or dry eye can comfortably have their vision corrected using contact lenses.
During the contact lens exam, as well as during your exam for eyeglass prescription lenses, your eyes will be checked for a wide variety of different eye diseases and disorders. Among the many different diseases that your eyes will be checked for are: glaucoma; cataracts; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; dry eyes; retinal tears; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. Our optometrist will be able to expertly fit you for contact lenses, even if you are hard to fit for lenses. Our optometrist will also determine which will be the best type of contact lens to work in your particular situation. Over the past 3 to 5 years, contact lenses have dramatically improved, and have become much more comfortable, convenient and are more optically enhanced. So, if you tried contact lenses a long time ago and did not have an enjoyable experience, you may want to think about trying contact lenses again. They offer many benefits over wearing eyeglasses, and can be a great change from having to wear eyeglasses all the time.
