If you are thinking about getting contacts, please schedule an appointment with our team at Lamm David EyeCare in San Angelo for a contact lens exam.
Determine Your Prescription
Our optometrists will assess your eyes' health during your eye exam and look for warning signs of potential eye diseases. The next step for healthy eyes is finding a prescription that gives the patient the best vision. Contact lenses help patients who are myopic (nearsighted) or hyperopic (farsighted). Contacts are also prescribed for patients with astigmatism or irregularly shaped corneas. We also offer a variety of bifocal contact lenses that can simultaneously correct both near and distance vision. Our team will work with you to find the right contacts for you during your contact lens exam.
Different Types of Contact Lenses
Patients often choose soft contact lenses for their vision correction. Soft contact lenses are light and flexible. Patients find them very comfortable in their eyes and barely noticeable. Some soft contact lenses are daily worn lenses offering the convenience of being thrown away after use. Other soft contact lenses come with a replacement schedule that may call for a new pair every month or every two weeks.
Rigid gas permeable lenses are made from a thicker material than soft lenses. Patients with high amounts of prescription, especially astigmatism, often prefer the sharpness of rigid gas permeable lenses to traditional soft contact lenses. Our providers also provide complex contact lens fittings for those with corneal diseases such as keratoconus or post-surgical corneas. Options include both corneal and scleral rigid gas permeable contact lenses.
