When you need new eyeglass or contact lens prescriptions, you will want to come to our eye care practice, where you will also be able to purchase new frames and contact lenses in Chandler, all under one roof.
At San Tan Eye Care you are able to get new contact lenses in Chandler, as well as contact lens and eyeglass exams. We are very pleased to have two expert and highly-trained optometrists on staff. They are Dr. Jack Hostetler and Dr. Jonathan Wold. Both of our fine optometrists provide excellent eye exams and eye care treatment. So whether you are in need of a new prescription, or need eye care for a problem such as dry eye syndrome, our eye doctors will be able to help you. Our doctors’ eye exams are very thorough. They will not only determine if you need a prescription for a refractive eye problem such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, but they will also screen your eyes for a wide variety of eye diseases and disorders. Among the eye problems they will screen for are: glaucoma; cataracts; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; retinal tears; and other problems of the cornea, macula and retina.
After you have your eye exam completed, if needed you will be written a prescription for eyeglass lenses or for contact lenses in Chandler. If you are getting contacts, our optometrist will discuss with you the many options available. Part of the contact lens selection will be guided by your prescription needs. However, if you are getting soft-lenses – and most people today are – there will be several different lens options for you to choose from. Soft contact lens come in different types related to how long you want to wear them at a time. Daily wear lenses can be worn for up to 18 hours and are removed at night for cleaning and to rest the eyes. Extended wear lenses can be worn for many days at a time. Disposable lenses are discarded after a single wear. Color-changing lenses are worn to make it look as though the color of your eyes have changed. Contact lenses can now even be multi-focal and have two different vision strengths in the same lens. Imagine no longer needing to wear reading glasses!
