Contact lenses are great for sport, social and lifestyle options. At Regional Eye Associates we offer comprehensive contact lens fitting and assessment. Your doctor will make recommendations on which contact lens options will work best for each individual patients. In fact, many types of contact lens exist. There are hard and soft lenses, keratoconnic, cosmetic, therapeutic and more. The lens that best suits your needs will fit well, is comfortable, as well as provide optimum vision.
Contact lens fitting, for the first time wearers, takes about an hour of consultation time. After the lenses are supplied, one or two scheduled follow-up visits ensure your satisfaction. Depending on the type of lenses prescribed, contact lens fitting fees range from $100 - $200 plus lens costs.
At Regional Eye Associates, we believe that there is so much more to a comprehensive eye exam than just an accurate glasses prescription. The nature of the eyes and visual system is such that many conditions can produce very similar symptoms. For example, blurred vision can be caused by something as benign as uncorrected refractive error or as serious as uncontrolled hypertension or diabetes.
Therefore, during our comprehensive eye and vision exam, we thoroughly evaluate the function and health of the eyes and total visual system to obtain ample information to diagnose the cause of signs noted by our doctors or symptoms reported by our patients. In addition, potentially blinding conditions such as glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy may cause no symptoms until they are far advanced and damage is irreparable. We therefore dilate all of our patient's eyes to allow us to look at all of the ocular structures to identify the presence of any ocular or systemic conditions that may exist without symptoms.
We incorporate the latest technology as well as rely on thorough objective examination of the eyes to ensure that all eye and related systems are evaluated. At the conclusion of the comprehensive vision exam, we take time to thoroughly explain all of our findings, make recommendations, and answer any question you may have.
Vision disorders are the fourth most common disability in the United States and the most prevalent handicapping condition during childhood. Studies show that one out of ten children is at risk from undiagnosed vision problems. Many eye conditions, including amblyopia (lazy eye), muscle imbalances, large refractive errors, and some ocular diseases do not have warning signs and can be easily missed in routine well-care examinations given by pediatricians. These vision problems can interfere with a child's ability to develop skills and perform to their potential.
In addition to visual acuity screening, our comprehensive pediatric examination also includes testing for unequal amounts of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism which could prevent one eye from developing properly. We carefully check that the eyes are positioned straight, work well together as a team, and focus accurately. In general, although they may be apprehensive, most children find the whole process painless, and often fun!
Many medical insurance plans cover comprehensive ophthalmology examinations. Our office staff will be glad to help guide you through this process.
