At Norfolk Family Eye Care, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrists. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, the doctors will discuss the 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. 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. An optometrist may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our optometrists, call 519-426-0415 or 519-583-2020 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, our doctors work 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, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as multifocal contact lenses, are also available. Call us if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.
Advances in contact lens technology have created great options for cosmetic and prosthetic lenses. Cosmetic lenses are available to transform or enhance your eye colour. Custom contact lenses can be created to camouflage any color variation or irregularity and produce a natural eye colour. There have been exciting new advancements in colour contact lenses in recent years. In 2015, Oprah featured Air Optix colour contact lenses (available at both our offices) in her O magazine. Call us at 519-426-0415 or 519-583-2020 to speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
